Internship

I worked at AARP as an intern for less than a year

Pros

The staff makes a real effort to involve the interns on substantive projects. They definitely don't look down on the interns and try to keep the copy-making and other menial tasks to a minimum. It also pays well for an internship in a city with too many unpaid college positions. I even made some friends there!

Cons

Sometimes too many people asked me to work on their projects.

    I worked at AARP full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    All access to resources that will be helpful as I will be 50 someday, tuition assistance program, participating in Day of Service and the people. Great people to spend 8 hours of your day with.

    Cons

    The downside was when they changed the policy on snow days. They used to follow the Federal government policy. But soon after the big snow storm we had a couple years ago , they decided to change the policy. It really isn't a big deal when you have leave available to take a snow day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I realize decisions that are made may be good or necessary for the company's best interest; but I wonder if what's good for the employees is ever discussed.
