Ivy Research Council

Strategy and Development Intern

September - December 2019 • Washington, DC

What I liked

Great team, very supportive. Lots of room for asking career advice from full time employees. Cool office space. Very flexible with hours, and they give you lots of autonomy.

What I wish was different

We cold called most of the day which could be boring. In addition, they set goals and then tied financial incentives to them, which I found unfair given that the only way to achieve the goal was if people actually picked up. Lots of it was based on luck. The full time employees were also calling which took away people who might have picked up for us.

Advice

Very unique and interesting experience. Super cool company and backstory.
