Pros

1. The prestige and fast growth of the company looks great on your resume.
2. You get really high access to the company's inner workings.
3. The environment is so fun.

Cons

1. They demand too much in-office time from interns.
2. It's easy to fall into the "give it to the free intern" slump of doing menial work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Yes, you are a "fun" and "young" office. Don't forget that your young interns are only a couple years younger than many of your employees.

    Pros

    Lots of new projects and ideas to work on. This company has great potential, and Richard is a good innovator of ideas.

    Cons

    This place has some of the worst political drama that I have ever seen, Most of the management believes in lying to the employees, and constantly play against one another, the management in Ca never comes to the bellevue office to check up on this branch, please, please do not work here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time addressing the needs of your employees, the Bellevue office handles the registrar side of the business, this is your cash-cow, take it seriously and show the employees in that office that you value them.
