    ProsGreat company. Excellent internship program although some of the interns did not get as much experience in the other departments. They should be a little more coordinated in what interns are expected to learn and do while at their respective departments.

    ConsDifficult to park at times.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement was excellent. I would say try to meet with the interns more.

    ProsVery involved, lots of opportunities for learning, many intern events (baseball game, team building, professional development workshops, tours, etc..). Great experience.

    ConsIf you dont have a car to commute to work, everyday feels like a journey. The smell is also something that you will have to get used to.

    An informative, laid-back summer experience

    Intern (Former Employee)
    Washington, DC

    Pros-Intern program was very well structured in terms of group activities
    -Employees were knowledgeable and enjoyed having interns around for the summer
    -Opportunities for continuing on into the school year were available

    Cons-The intern program was a little disorganized in terms of actual work available to assist with for the first month

    Advice to Senior ManagementFigure out what departments the interns will be working in and have an idea of some work they can do prior to the first week of the intern program

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Management is very incompetent and cronyism is rampant.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Washington, DC

    ProsThe benefits and salary compensation are very good for the DMV area.

    ConsPoor opportunity for advancement and growth. Lack of formal training; unstructured learning especially for an organization of this caliber. Extremely low office morale.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore management and leadership training and development needed for front-line supervisors.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
