    Pros

    The staff here is extremely friendly, everyone is willing and able to help out under any circumstance. There is a strong family-oriented attitude here.

    Cons

    Interns aren't paid, and that's due to the fact that Easter Seals is a non-profit company, so I can't really blame them for it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep being awesome.
