Pros

They adjust your work pace and tasks to your skill level.
Very patient.
The management and every civil servant in the Auditor's office is friendly and takes the time to teach interns and provide guidance towards your future.
You dont do "busy" work. The auditor's office has a culture that the intern is there contributing to the mission of the department rather than courier from the nearby coffee shop

Cons

As an intern, I don't get paid.

Advice to Management

Just keep on doing what your doing.

    Pros

    Good pay and convenient location located just above the 12th St BART station.

    Cons

    There is a lack of knowledge sharing and willingness to change within the HR and Admin departments. I can't say how the others operate, but this was a serious issue in these two departments.

    Advice to Management

    There are way too many people being paid to do very little work. Especially in the HR and Admin departments.
