More Pros and Cons

  1. "Summer Intern- Would recommend if you can afford an unpaid internship"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Intern - Anonymous Intern
    Former Intern - Anonymous Intern

    I worked at Human Rights Campaign as an intern

    Pros

    Very friendly, encouraging, open staff

    Lunch and Learns

    High profile- nice name to have on resume, cool guests, and BTS to a major nonprofit
    Relaxed environment
    Lots of other interns

    Cons

    No pay

    Very public profile, many (on all sides) disagree with the work HRC does, so you may end up doing a lot of defending

    Advice to Management

    Have more to do for the interns- we had a lot of time where we had nothing to work on


  2. "Great experience"

    Unpaid internship makes it difficult to live in the DC area.

    I worked at Human Rights Campaign as an intern (More than a year)

    great intern culture, tons of events and opportunities, very reasonable supervisors, unpaid but reimbursed for travel when necessary,

  4. "Summer Internship"

    I worked at Human Rights Campaign as an intern

    Pros

    Amazing internship program and great tools provided to us (especially the brown bag lunches!)

    Cons

    Supervisors should work more closely with interns. Professionalism is important, but also interns are trying to gain experience and hone their skills, so a personable kind of interaction is important.

    Advice to Management

    Just to pay attention to the afore mentioned con!

    Pros

    People work hard and long hours at times...however, management realizes and appreciates just how hard staff works. Management is very aware and fair in this area.

    It can sometimes be difficult to "stand out" in an organization of this size.

    Got amazing campaign internship for the 2016 election, attend congressional hearings, and other cool events.

    Unpaid work, lots of classic "intern" tasks, not a lot of enthusiasm.

    Pay your interns and have more meaningful duties for them.

    I worked at Human Rights Campaign full-time

    Pros

    The people you work with are truly amazing and beyond dedicated to HRC's mission. The connections you build while at HRC are truly worth it.

    Cons

    No room for advancement across much of the organization creates a poor culture among younger staff who have been there for 2+ years. A lack of turnover at higher levels impedes organizational development.

    Advice to Management

    Increase professional growth and training opportunities for staff at an assistant/ coordinator level. One must create incentive for young talent to stay or else they will leave, creating high turnover within the most moldable individuals.

    Pros

    Good mission, healthy work environment, great benefits, commitment to their core issues.

    Cons

    Nepotism and untrained managers make a bit of a 'cult of personality' culture. But it's kept it check by the overall vibe of the org.

    Advice to Management

    Set your employees up for success and you'll be successful.
