Amazing work culture and great environment to be in. Lots of like-minded, intelligent and worldly people who are genuinely interested in their field. Endeavor is a collaborative place and ideal 'first job' kind of company: consulting background of management helps develop efficiency and work discipline while office culture leaves freedom for taking bold initiatives.
Internship unpaid and no benefits for interns. Work hours are long and overtime will be very likely. Most likely to be working on one project during the entire duration of internship.
Advice to Management
Make a point to interact more with interns or newcomers. Would be beneficial if one of the senior management people could have introduced themselves during an induction.

Other interns are great people. Interning here will give you a lot of great experience.
Not everyone is friendly. It seems like people appreciate the way you look more than what you can bring to the table

Very friendly environment
Interesting case studies to work on
Can't think of any cons
I have been working at Endeavor full-time
- Unique model to support entrepreneurs and catalyze development and job creation
- Travel perks
- Great work/life balance
- Wonderful, experienced and dynamic staff members for the most part
- Opportunity to work with amazing and interesting entrepreneurs and business leaders
- Management is tuned out and resistant to feedback, often traveling and absent from the office
- CEO is disconnected and does not have priorities that reflect the organization's best interest
- Lack of clear career path and opportunity to growth
- Not enough time spent towards really thinking about employee retention strategies, leading to a revolving door and loss of potential talent
- Lack of consideration towards maintaining systems or structures that could prevent a 'reinventing-the-wheel' type situation with much of the work
Advice to Management
Take some time to listen to feedback and try harder to show that you're as interested in the organization as you expect employees to be.

Very nice group of people, flexible work hours, travel opportunities, intellectual work, professional development opportunities, opportunities to get published, build a network
Few people believe wholeheartedly in the mission; pay is on the lower side, especially for someone with a master's degree, CEO/founder is not popular

International development and lots of travel
Non-profit so there are some limitations

Endeavor is THE name when it comes to High Impact Entrepreneurship. Although Endeavor is a non-profit it is very much run like a business. How many non-profits actually give bonuses?
The organization has a strong mission, phenomenal network, and global reach. It's a great place to work for anyone who loves entrepreneurship and travel. Benefits are generous with full health, dental, and matching up to 5% of your salary for your 403(b) plan. Endeavor is full of passionate and intelligent people. We celebrate birthdays and generally enjoy one another's company.
I don't have many negatives about working for Endeavor. They really do try and make it a special place to work. Endeavor could benefit from a stronger emphasis on HR, in particular with focusing more on the personal/professional growth of each employee.
