    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at National Democratic Institute for less than a year

    Pros

    People are super friendly, different teams have different vibes and are all pretty inclusive. You're pretty busy all the time unlike some intern/temporary positions where no one gives you anything to do. They actually put you to work and encourage you to get the most out of the job as you can.

    Cons

    You're doing a lot of grunt work and you can sometimes feel micromanaged. Just keep reminding yourself that you're the intern and not to take it personally. Another con--it's temporary.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe don't have 5 people look over a logistics email? It seems like a waste of manpower and feels unnecessary. In a nutshell: there's not a clear management structure and you're often getting feedback from many different people--just gotta go with the flow.
