    I worked at YWCA as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, very nice people and a few extrinsic rewards like potlucks that interns can take part of.

    Cons

    I enjoyed my time, but the work was repetitive due to the lack of technological advancements within the facility. Also was unpaid internship.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep pushing to stay current with technology
