    Pros

    There are only a few foreign policy think-tanks in California, and the Pacific Council is one of the best; they have connections to all the movers and shakers in Los Angeles. It's a small organization, and people wear many hats -- you'll get to take on a broader range of responsibilities than you would elsewhere.

    Cons

    Hiring is often very disorganized as people come and go. I was lucky in that I had internal contacts who helped me follow up on the position after the person who had been my point of contact abruptly left the Council.

    Advice to Management

    Use your limited resources to their fullest, and support tailored, high-impact scholarship that will get the Council noticed periodically in DC.

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Pacific Council on International Policy as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - People are very passionate about what they do, and make an effort to be collaborative within all departments.
    - The Council is making an effort to diversify and strengthen their strategic mission.

    Cons

    - Just moved in to a bigger office, which is not quite full yet. It can be pretty quiet depending on where you're working.
    - CEO is never in the office.

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Pacific Council on International Policy as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The staff is all very tightly knit, and they really take care of their interns. The office is extremely friendly, and while everyone is always busy, they'll take the time to get to know you.

    Cons

    None really - small stipend, but that's more than is available at most internships/jr. fellowships.

    Pros

    - Many interesting events and opportunities to network, if you want to take them.
    - People are very friendly, and there's a very positive work environment.
    - Work is productive, and you're actively contributing.

    Cons

    - Communication is primarily through in-house online chat, so it can get pretty quiet.
    - Length of fellowship may be considered short, if you're looking for something more long-term.
