What Employees Say
I have been working at Human Rights Campaign full-time for more than a year
-Room for advancement on most teams at HQ. -Forces you to gain experience in communication and cross-training to learn different skill sets since most roles involve a lot of collaboration with... colleagues on different teams. -Victories are celebrated which makes for a nice camaraderie and improves morale. -You'll attend occasional glamorous events like the National Dinner or have the opportunity to travel to volunteer at Pride events across the country. Well, most roles offer these opportunities. -Knowing you're working for a good cause, especially since HRC has made great strides in being more just to transgender people and people of color. -Benefits are pretty good; I really have no complaints there.
-Much of the work is reactionary based on the news (a necessity, to be fair) so the work can sometimes be unexpectedly intense. Be prepared to hit the ground running at any moment, stay very late,... and be aware that some teams have on-call hours on the weekends and evenings for this reason. During election time especially, expect to have less flexibility in taking vacation time since everyone is so busy. -Because things can be so rushed, there isn't always time to plan out projects as thoroughly as you might want. If you're the type of person who likes weeks/months to complete any project, this might not be the best fit. But it depends on your role again; some projects do take a long time. -If the news upsets you easily, you can't really escape it at HRC. It's our job as HRC employees to be informed about what's happening in the country. Sometimes the work you do will relate to an issue you may be personally sensitive about. -Pay is average for a non-profit in the area so I can't really complain there, but don't come expecting to make tons of money in most roles. Even roles that pay "well" are underpaid compared to the for-profit equivalents. Just have proper expectations for non-profit compensation.
