I worked at Oxfam as an intern

Pros

This internship was a good learning experience. Lots of opportunity to take on projects, research, connect with partner organizations, etc.

Cons

Not much supervision or guidance. Lots of people seemed to be gone for the summer. A very quiet office environment.

    I worked at Oxfam full-time

    Pros

    Great chance to experience working at the hub of an international NGO. Lots of travel opportunities. Lots of opportunities to work with people around the world. Friendly working culture (at least it was when I was there), with social events. Laid back dress code.

    Cons

    Very process orientated. Difficult to 'get things done' due to onerous sign-off procedures. Very administrative and far removed from the field work on the ground. Lack of middle ranking jobs, so can be difficult to progress and be promoted.
