    Pros

    The IISD is a great place for starting out a career. The projects are as varied and interesting as the staff. There is a lot of opportunity to find and develop your own projects.

    Cons

    The amount of over time put in for project (research) staff is not compensated with overtime pay and the large work load makes for taking off time in lieu difficult. Expect to work long hours on a regular basis.
