    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.

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

    Pros

    Very cool, laid back, progressive organization to work at and much of the staff is very friendly and helpful in mentoring. The events are absolutely amazing to be apart of.

    Cons

    Communication between divisions is quite poor, in that sometimes people do not realize that someone is out of the office or when their interns work. There is also a lack of substantial work at times, which ends up in having to go to other departments to find something to work on.

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

    Pros

    The people are intelligent, personable and passionate about the issues. Interns are made to feel like they're really important to the work that gets done in the organization from the onset. Even while it is unpaid, there are so many opportunities and doors that are opened to you that it really makes up for it in some ways!

    Cons

    Unpaid internship, which made finding cost-effective living arrangements difficult, and led other interns to pursue jobs after the internship was over for the day in order to fund their summer expenses.
    Some interns were set to one singular task over the course of the entire internship, while others were given a wide breadth of work--sometimes interns would be without work to do, while another intern would have an intensive project they'd be tasked with.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your interns! There are so many worthwhile progressive organizations in D.C. that to remain competitive in getting the best interns, there needs to be compensation for them all.

    I have been working at Human Rights Campaign as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great passion behind the cause

    Cons

    It's very fast paced and everyone needs to pull their weight. If they don't, then it gets tricky.

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

    Pros

    Working at HRC as an intern, I was able to build an incredible community of mentors, fellow activists, and friends. I would highly recommend the internship program. It includes robust programming, valuable mentorship, and fabulous professional connections that I don't know if I could've gotten anywhere else.

    Cons

    Perhaps the only draw-back to the internship program is that some internships can be very silo-ed. Some of my fellow interns were assigned to only one project and had to fight pretty hard to get flexibility to work on other things. That was not my experience, but I think it's something to watch out for.

    Advice to Management

    I think that management is overall doing a great job! The environment there is friendly, considerate, warm, collegial, and fabulous. I just think that they need to ensure that all interns are PAID in the future. Currently, only a small portion of interns receive stipends.
