    I worked at UNICEF USA

    Pros

    Beautiful office, helpful supervisors, close knit teams. Everyone cares about each other's work and about UNICEF's mission. They offer travel reimbursement for subways. I was able to be rehired for a second summer. They do a great job at recruiting past interns. I have also used them for informational interviews and they are very open to speaking with me.

    Cons

    The Internships they offer are all unpaid.

    I worked at UNICEF USA

    Pros

    Work closely with senior directors and heads to carry out the organization's mission. Get praise and credit for your contribution.

    Cons

    Have no objective to provide interns with offer of employment after internship. There seems to be cliques within the organization and the ratio of men to women is minuscule. At times the tasks handed to interns are more like chores/tasks covered as daily tasks at the organization. You might find yourself running errands for the bulk of your internship than expected. It is a great place to intern if you are beginning... your college career.

    Advice to Management

    Provide opportunities for growth to interns and tasks that involve them rather than isolates them into a corner running errands for the organization. Majority of the staff seem to be passive and divided, this becomes a tricky situation for interns but those with the opportunity, tend to find a way around this. Would love to see an equal balance of men to women as well.

    I worked at UNICEF USA for less than a year

    Pros

    Having UNICEF on your resume is great if you would like to pursue the non-profit, NGO world. If you have some down time during the week, while still in school then go for it. Just know this internship in itself is not a then opportunity for growth, yet a great stepping stone to have on a resume.

    Cons

    The experience itself was disappointing as the internship felt very robotic. We sat in a windowless and produced donor research forms all day. It was interesting to learn about the sociopolitical landscape of their Southern California donor base. However, this internship provided no room for growth. We were expected to wear fully business attire even when we never left this room during our shift. This internship was... unpaid, which was frustrating as we could see the salaries of the few career employees on the office, as well as the volume of donations coming in.

    Advice to Management

    Allow interns to wear casual, yet presentable clothing. Unless of course we are going to events, then business attire. Provide connections of interest to interns as encouragement for future growth opportunities.
