I worked at National Geographic full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

National Geographic has a strong reputation for excellence worldwide. The mission of the organization is for the increase and diffusion of geographic knowledge - a noble pursuit. Excellent benefits.

Cons

While the organization creates an excellent range of publications, the vibe internally is quite slow moving. Attention to detail and accuracy are no doubt the reason, but it may be a difficult shift for new employees after working in faster paced companies.

Advice to Management

Make better use of internal talent.
