    I have been working at Center for Strategic and International Studies as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Meet and work with top people, comfortable and friendly office culture, lots of opportunities to attend events and learn something new, great for resume building

    Cons

    There aren't any opportunities to move into a permanent position unless someone else leaves, and that's very rare. Further, some interns are paid and others aren't, which strikes me as unethical even by internship standards.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Use some of your resources to retain good people who fit in well, which will also reduce transition times between internship pools.
