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.

    Pros

    Culture, atmostphere, great communication among employees and management, pretty good benefits early in career, somewhat immune to economic flucuations

    Seasonal, somewhat limited room for advancement, there are a few bad employees, some of whom are gatekeepers, but there are workarounds

    Apply the rules to everyone, monitor hours a little more closely
