    I worked at Environmental Defense as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Very friendly people, easy going atmosphere, many opportunities to learn about many different areas of environmental protection and preservation, incredibly knowledgeable staff, nice area, all day free water and coffee, very flexible schedule.

    Cons

    Tasks for interns should be more well planned. I sometimes felt like my supervisors we're struggling to find meaningful work for me to do. However, this may not be the same for all supervisors. Computers are ancient, don't have much space, and can be very slow.

    I have been working at Environmental Defense full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    This is a great org to work for if you care about pragmatic solutions to environmental problems. Middle management is generally great in my experience, caring about their employees and generally seeking to encourage professional growth.

    Cons

    Upper management is a little detached, and often times the pressure to fund raise overtakes other work priorities. While personal and professional growth is encouraged there are limits and promoting from within seems rare.
