    I worked at Eastern Kentucky University as an intern

    Pros

    Great opportunity presented by EKU. I was provided an internship with the Mayors Office in Kentucky. I was paid for the position and received experience that greatly boosted by resume.

    Cons

    I had to drive an hour to work each day. I was not compensated for travel during the internship. At some points it was difficult to reach my supervisor at EKU.

    Advice to Management

    Continue offering marketing internship opportunities for students. As a marketing student I have noticed not many internships are offered though EKU.

    Pros

    My office at least is friendly and cooperative. The campus culture is polite and friendly. Benefits are decent, not Silicon Valley-level, but good. Pay isn't bad for essentially a government gig.

    Cons

    Frozen pay, budget woes, the irrationality inherent to bureaucracy.

    Advice to Management

    Branding isn't as important as quality, but I can see where perception takes precedence.
