Working at Heritage is like working with family. Collaborative yet formal, professional yet fun. Great on-site amenities, including a gym, parking garage for cars and bikes, and fresh food vending.

Amazing people and culture and a great cause
Major Gifts Specialist (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCMay 27, 2017
If you want to go into public policy and/or care about the conservative movement and want to advance the cause, this is a great place to start. You will learn a great deal here, with many free luncheons with experts in various areas.
Pros
Lots of free food (leftover from luncheons), very compassionate family focused group of professionals
Cons
Unless you're going to join a lobbying firm eventually, most politics jobs pay a minimum about and are in urban/high cost areas.

Intern- Major Gifts Planning (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCFebruary 1, 2017
The Heritage Foundation was an amazing place to intern! I learned a great deal during my four months there! I interned in the Development Department, specifically with the Legacy Society, handling IRAs, Estates, and other sensitive information. A typical day was answering the phones for both the membership services line and the Legacy line and handling any other job asked. The workplace environment was wonderful, encouraging, and full of lessons. The most enjoyable part of my job was interacting with the Vice President of Development and his entire team.

A supportive environment where collaboration is easy to achieve and productivity flows.
Intern (Current Employee) –  Washington, DCJuly 7, 2014
While people work hard, the environment is laid back. Work/Life balance is fantastic and they value personal time as much as their work. Everyone is ready and willing to help and give input, which has made acclimating smooth and growth easy. I have learned a lot about web advertisement, paper publications for print and web, the process of photo research, and the complexity of in-house design. Probably the hardest thing to do is photo research. Depending on the subject matter asked for, there are only so many photos you can find that fits the description of the photo desired. The most enjoyable part of the job is knowing that everything you produce directly impacts the effectiveness of the foundation and its connection to its audience.

My time as an intern at The Heritage Foundation I developed critical research skills and blog writing capability.
Intern (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCApril 18, 2013
A typical day at The Heritage Foundation consisted of doing research on health care policy. I was assigned to their Center for Health Policy Studies department. On a weekly basis I was assigned a task of writing blog posts for The Foundry, the Heritage Foundation's blog. The hardest part of the job was analyzing the state budget trends of the state of Ohio for a report that was published.
Pros
capitol hill experience; able to attend congressional hearings; free food
