I worked at Human Rights Campaign as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Everyone was exceptionally friendly; the interns (and law fellows, to an extent) all bonded. Opportunities to attend events with lots of big names in D.C. They hire out of the intern pool a LOT.

Cons

Unpaid, only $100 in travel stipend for 10 weeks, which is ridiculously low for D.C.'s metro system. Few of the interns had enough work to do; I knew someone who regularly went home at 2 or 3 p.m. and everyone else was surfing the Internet for at least half the day. There's some, but not a lot of, critical examination of the HRC party line.

Advice to Management

Expect more of your interns! They can all handle more work, and more substantive work too.

    I worked at Human Rights Campaign as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Incredible staff who want to hear your opinions, even if you are on the low end of the totem pole. They do awesome work, both politically and through their foundation, and are pushing to include more and more people in the fight for LGBT equality.

    Cons

    The internship was unpaid, which made it hard financially, but it was certainly extremely educational and worth more than what I pay for a semester of college.
