    Pros

    *Treated as a member of the team, allowed to work very independently and produce content for U.S. News
    *Paid, which is a huge plus for an internship in journalism
    *Everyone in the office I've met has been friendly and helpful
    *Plenty of opportunities to meet people, for example, a lot of people eat lunch in the break room every day, there are volunteer opportunities and there are snacks and beer every Friday evening for "beer Friday"
    *Cooperative and collaborative environment. Great for learning.
    *Great location in Georgetown

    Cons

    *Although you do get paid during your internship, it's not a lot. Definitely enough to live on, but don't expect to be doing much saving
