    I have been working at Human Rights Campaign as an intern

    Pros

    You get directly involved with your project/department (instead of just getting coffee for superiors), lots of opportunities for continued learning

    I worked at Human Rights Campaign as an intern

    Pros

    Supervisors do a great job, the structure of the intern program is really clearly laid out and I felt like I got a ton of hands on experience!

    Sometimes there was a lot of downtime, depending on what was happening/effecting us.

    I have been working at Human Rights Campaign full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    HRC is a highly-effective non-profit organization that is results-oriented, uses the best from the for-profit and non-profit world strategies, highly-innovative/entrepreneurial and values-based.
    A great jumping off point for anyone who wants to establish themselves as a leader in public advocacy and development.

    Cons

    Due to organizational size and specialized experience required by most positions, upward mobility for high performers at higher levels is limited.
    The climate is extraordinarily fast-paced and unless you're someone who can thrive in that atmosphere, it can be a challenging place to work from a work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    The organization is incredibly focused on winning, which it should. At the same time however, it must also have a long-term strategy of investing in its people, which it is starting to make major investments.

    Pros

    Work environment is extremely welcoming. Transitioning into to job is very easy. Easy access to public transportation

    Cons

    No complaints really. If anything during my internship, there was sometimes a little too much down where there was a gap in substantive work.

    Advice to Management

    They should make it easier for interns to connect with upper level manage to explore possibilities for future employment.

    Pros

    HRC U, the internship program, created community between the interns and HRC staff. I had real responsibility and felt valued while also contributing and learning LOTS.

    Cons

    It was an unpaid internship (this has since changed), which was difficult financially.


  9. "Fantastic summer internship program."

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

    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere, phenomenal educational opportunities, generally has an open-door culture. The program focuses on professional development in a way that few other internships do. Enjoyed the mentoring aspect.

    Cons

    Like any other internship, it is what you make it. No stipend, so not a place to work unless you're actually passionate about the issues.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing! Consider adding a stipend to make the program more competitive with other internships in the progressive D.C. circle.
