Good experience helping people in need. Dedicated staff and interns. Pleasant work environment. Company relies on interns about as much as paid staff-- and would not operate successfully without intern support. Given that, believe interns should at least get some kind of a weekly/monthly stipend for their help. Had been with much smaller non-profit that did that.
Other International Rescue Committee Employee Reviews
Job Work/Life Balance
Great mission, frustrating workplace
Consultant (Former Employee) – New York, NY – June 14, 2019
The International Rescue Committee has a great mission and values. Their office environment is below average with poor building conditions and poor office equipment and supplies. Although there is some great knowledge and experience with the people that work there, there is poor teamwork and collaboration across departments.

If you are young, good looking, educated at the right schools, able to communicate with the other "in" crowd, and willing to do anything asked for the senior team (work crazy hours, get their lunch even though you are a professional, etc), you may just eventually get ahead with a shred of your dignity.
