A wonderful opportunity to start a career in D.C.
As an intern, I have a lot of responsibility and potential to hone various professional skills. It can be a bit tense with the amount of work that I have to get done on a regular basis but the deliverables are meaningful and worth the effort.
Lots of free food after events. Interns are paid. Management is friendly. CEO is fantastic.
Sometimes it is a bit hard to access higher-ups, no publishing credit as an intern, sometimes associate researchers treat interns in a disrespectful manner.
