    I have been working at World Resources Institute full-time

    Pros

    - Fantastic reputation for quality, independent research. Ranked the #1 environmental think tank.
    - Extremely intelligent program staff, well respected, and supportive of junior staff
    - Good work culture, flexibility
    - Great tuition benefits, supportive of further education
    - Very international (~15% staff are international). The only think tank I know of that sponsors work visas for all levels of employees, ensuring that they do hire the best possible person for the job, and are genuinely a global organization.

    Cons

    - Salaries are not competitive
    - Far too many administrative staff (fundraising, communications, etc.) who don't provide much value to the program staff, and result in a very high overhead.
    - Tendency to hire overqualified (masters level) candidates for entry level positions, which can lead to frustration

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on building great programs and better salaries for program staff, and reduce overheads. Note that this is based on previous senior management

    I worked at World Resources Institute as an intern

    Pros

    Great place to work at. very professional staff.
    The work schedule is flexible. They do not expect me to sit on my desk all day as long as I got my work done.

    Cons

    The pay for intern is minuscule. However, it is still recommendable to have a good experience.

    Advice to Management

    Higher pay for the intern. Maybe some training .
