    I worked at Initiative full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I learned some great client management skills. Some truly incredible people - several people I met there became some of my best friends outside of work, and there are others still whom I have the utmost professional respect for.

    Cons

    Little to no training. Everything is learn as you go. People don't really teach you the "why" of what you're doing, just the "how." Lots of cattiness and people who don't manage their own stress well. Employees are often told that a busy season will only last a month or two, when in reality it often drags on for four-six months. Understaffed. Long hours, no overtime. No concern or consideration from management to improve any of those things.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize when your employees are over worked and under paid, and consider improving at least one of those things.
