“Really great organization doing incredibly meaningful work. You are surrounded by really smart people that care about a variety of policy interests. The organization is also mid-size so it's incredibly large with the number of initiatives and policy groups, but within your own group it is pretty small and tight-knit. Everyone is welcoming and willing to share their work with you if you take the initiative. ”
