I worked at Environmental Defense as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

-Work with really smart people
-Given intellectually challenging work
-Interesting weekly lunches with lectures from senior management and outside speakers

Cons

-Unpaid internship
-Sometimes given work without quite enough guidance
-Not an easy internship, but overall a very good experience and one that will prepare you for a lot of different types of work down the road

Advice to Management

Move away from paper mail fundraising. It might work for now, but it comes across as hypocritical and it's more outdated than the fundraising staff thinks.

    I worked at Environmental Defense as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very friendly people, easy going atmosphere, many opportunities to learn about many different areas of environmental protection and preservation, incredibly knowledgeable staff, nice area, all day free water and coffee, very flexible schedule.

    Cons

    Tasks for interns should be more well planned. I sometimes felt like my supervisors we're struggling to find meaningful work for me to do. However, this may not be the same for all supervisors. Computers are ancient, don't have much space, and can be very slow.
