    I worked at European Parliament

    Pros

    Very prestigious place to work. I can feel a sense of achievement by influencing European and world politics. Very nice working environment and social life.

    Cons

    Compensation is not good enough for interns. It is hard to even break-even during the months of the internship. Had to find outside sources.
