    Great opportunities, if you are willing to work for them.

    Office Specialist Senior (Former Employee) Tempe, AZ

    ProsOnce you are staff, as long as you are willing to work and are intelligent with great customer service you can move ahead or laterally with ease.

    ConsFor some of the higher jobs you need at least a bachelor's degree but more then likely a master's degree. Luckily, you can get your master's while you work there.

    Advice to Senior ManagementA little more flexibility with work and school schedules for staff members.

    Graduate Research Assistant

    Management Intern (Current Employee) Tempe, AZ

    ProsMy boss has been really great. I work part time and he's very flexible about fitting my hours in around classes and an outside internship, even letting me work online rather than come into the office.
    It's a fast paced environment where I'm working on something different all the time, which I love
    Looks good on a resume, especially if you're planning on staying in the area after graduation

    ConsThe Management Intern positions do come with tuition benefits, but no insurance, which can be rough as a grad student not making much money.
    While ASU is a great atmosphere, the city of Phoenix is nothing special. It's all spread out so you have to drive everywhere, and outside of Tempe there isn't a lot to attract younger people.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
