    Pros

    CIC is a provider of office space to startups, large businesses, non profits, and organizations of all stripes. As a service provider, CIC provides the best possible work environment for clients, but staff of CIC similarly enjoy the benefits. The team is also very friendly, fun, supportive and intelligent.

    Cons

    Unclear path forward for professional development.

    The pace of the center is always changing - it's like being a part of a living organism so you need enjoy having tougher days and easier days.

    Advice to Management

    Managers haven't been given any time of management training. This could be very helpful for focusing managers' time, attention, and energy on only the most important things.

    Pros

    There's no predicting what exactly will happen on a given day at CIC. We provide a wide range of services to the couple hundred companies in our spaces, and to meet those needs CIC management looks for intelligent, flexible, creative individuals. A lot of trust is placed in the staff, and the high retention rate is a testament to the benefits of being employed here -- my favorite is that I enjoy what I do 99/100 days, but the free monthly massage is also nice.

    Cons

    At the moment there's not much room for vertical progress, career wise. Also, while we're often handed new challenges, new projects and responsibilities, it's hard to convey that growth on a resume. It's difficult to accurately translate the CIC experience in general, without being able to show someone around.

    Pros

    CIC is a place where innovation and initiative are highly valued. The environment is very fast-paced, so there's never a boring day, and it is casual but professional. (Not stuck-up.) The management is supportive of you if you want to learn and grow. And the work is very self-directed; you are trusted to make good decisions and to manage your own time. They give direct feedback so you immediately know where you can improve and what you are doing well.

    Cons

    It is a fast-paced environment and expectations are high, so it can often be get quite stressful.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing.
