I love the people I work with. Manager/supervisors are great. Generally an independent working environment without any micromanagement. Vacation, sick, personal days are a plus (they even provide these for interns). Lots of emphasis on providing fun activities for employees. One of the best internship opportunities around (coming from someone who dealt with a lot of unpaid internships).
The pay could be better (seems lots of employees feel this way, not just me). Most frustrating aspect—large, corporate marketing firm means you have to deal with a lot of higher-ups changing direction of firm. When I started, I wrote copy all the time (which is what I wanted to do, as a copywriter/editor). Towards the end, I spent a lot of my time just trying to find anything to do at all.

This summer, July 2014, a friend of mine who works there told me about the Account Supervisor position soon after it was first posted. I was excited to hear that as my friend likes working there. I submitted my resume and didn't hear back. After following up I found out that the position posted didn't really exist. They were collecting resumes in the event it did. Never did get a call from them for an interview.
