Great work, no balance between life/work
Project Coordinator II (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCOctober 2, 2017
Great work, no balance between life/work. Really passionate co-workers. Really cool issue areas. Need to fundraise yourself. No real connection between teams.

Good organization but minimum promotion for interns and junior staff
Research Intern (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCNovember 19, 2016
Would recommend it for new grads to gain experience, but not quite possible to get a real job and not pay their junior staff well

Great place to work with intelligent people

WRI is a place with immensely talented and intelligent people. There are some issues with job security and it is difficult to move from admin work to research.

Productive workplace, great workers and credible leaders.
Researcher & M&E Assistant (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCSeptember 3, 2015
Work life at WRI was busy but less pressure. The people were very friendly and always ready to help which helped to facilitate learning for me. I learned that a conducive working environment such as the one at WRI encourages learning ability and increase productivity. Meeting people at Brown-bags and other events helped me improve my understanding of the cultural norms of this organization. I enjoyed working with my team and fellow interns, but the hardest part of my stay was taking negative feedback from team leader.
Pros
Friendly workers
Cons
I was an intern / unpaid

Fascinating work
Intern (Current Employee) –  Washington, DCNovember 4, 2014
WRI employees are dedicate to their research, and it is great to a part of such a knowledgeable group of people. Most of the higher-level management are friendly and approachable. Funding issues can be a problem for interns, but WRI apparently has a fairly strong tract record of hiring interns.
