Other Employee Reviews for United States Congress

  1. "A great place to see the inner workings of government, not great for the long term."

    Pros

    It gives you a great sense of purpose to walk into the Rayburn building or the Longworth building every morning. I liked fielding phone calls from constituents because they are always very interesting, but that could be a con.

    Cons

    As an intern, the day to day is not particularly challenging or mentally stimulating. There also is not much room for creativity (at the intern level).

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring interns because the experience is invaluable for anyone studying politics or wants to know how our government works from the inside.


  2. "It was a great learning experience"

    Pros

    I worked as an intern at Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney's District Office and I thought it was a great networking opportunity for someone who had limited experience with internships in the past. Though the internship was unpaid, (as most government internships are) it was a great way to incorporate skills fresh from the classroom into the internship's duties.

    Cons

    The internship was unpaid and is geared towards students who have not held internships in the past. This is also why the internship is beneficial.

    Advice to Management

    The internship is geared towards people who have not held internships before, though to those who had more experience, they were given a special workload with more responsibilities. I dont have any suggestions for the internship coordinators, they have done a great job with the program.
