    I have been working at The Chicago Council on Global Affairs full-time

    Pros

    The Council's mission of promoting global engagement makes it feel good to work there. It's full of capable, passionate people doing interesting things, and the networking opportunities through events are hard to beat.

    Cons

    As a nonprofit, it doesn't pay junior staff well. There's probably some planned turnover. That's understandable. Sometimes the passion of the staff can lead to tension because everyone wants everything to be as good as possible, but they have competing visions.

    Advice to Management

    Treat the junior staff with a little more respect--the line workers could use the support and encouragement. Other than that, keep being ambitious.
