    I worked at Chicago Symphony Orchestra as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    -Being able to work for a world-renowned institution.
    -Working with staff members who are both amazing professionals and individuals. The musicians are also very cool!
    -Excellent work-life balance--it is a very relaxed, friendly environment.
    -Great resume item if you are going into non-profit/performing arts field.
    -Free tickets to concerts.
    -Learn a lot from everyone--whether from associates to VPs.

    Cons

    -Unpaid internship.
    -Could be tedious if you don't go out and ask for projects. Get the most out of it!
    -From my standpoint as an intern, I thought there was very small room for promotions to advance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Everyone in Chicago knows the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, so use that brand recognition to attract top collegiate talents as interns. Paid internships can definitely help to do that.
