Great internship experience!

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Atlanta, GA

ProsThe branch I interned with had a great environment and my bosses were really flexible with my hours (which I heard is not the case in all areas). They also wanted to help me develop as a public health professional and gave me the freedom to work independently under limited guidance with an open door policy. I started by assisting a project and then was assigned my own project. I learned how to collect data from different databases and practice/improve my data analysis skills. Overall, great experience! Another great thing is that the cubicles actually have doors on them so you get your own privacy unlike other cubicles.

ConsSitting in cubicles can get a bit distracting if your neighbors are loud.
There was a current hiring freeze so unfortunately the internship did not lead into a full time position.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
