Pros

- Travel: You have the change to go to a variety of places.
- People: You will meet people that will be part of your life for years to come
- Office: You just can't beat this office.

Cons

Because they only offer the opportunity to the best, the chances of being selected for a full-time position are extremely limited.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you truly hand-pick each person as Co-CEO's, spend more time getting to know them, how can you judge someone based on what someone else says.

    Pros

    Travel around the country
    Live in Chicago
    Free beer in the office

    Cons

    The title of this review says it all. You will work very hard, especially when you're on site at an event. You learn very little as what you do as an intern equates to low level peon work while in the office and manual labor when on site at an event. The full time employees make little (if any) effort to actually teach you about event planning. That could be because so many of them have less than one year experience and so they are still learning the ropes themselves.

    At the end of the internship you are told some story about why they can't offer you a full time position. What this really means is that the full time employees liked some of the other interns better. This is not based on skill or passion, but on popularity. Because such is the case you leave with a really bad taste in your mouth.

    This is not a company that seems concerned with hiring the top talent as they move toward the future. They seem to be only focused on the immediate future, which is not a great business plan.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get to know what is going on in your company, especially when it comes to the hiring process. Your employees are only focused on hiring the popular interns, not the interns with the skills and talents that will cause your company to succeed in the future.
