    I worked at Sesame Workshop as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Well-known company, great resume builder, gain lots of valuable experience in the industry that you can take with you, dedicated staff with a mission and work ethic, celebrity sightings, colorful office and chalkboard, fantastic company values, awesome production set, informative all-staff meetings, mentors can be found in executives with years of experience, business casual attire

    Cons

    Low pay for those who are not in management positions, contractors do not have staff/employee benefits and are not compensated for time off, should have thick skin if you are new to the media world (though it varies between departments), hard to grow or move from within your assigned department - but it can be done (must put in the time to earn your place), new positions are rare - many with the company have been there for some time and will be there for some time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your employees to keep them, funding needs to be found in more than government sources to keep projects going

    I worked at Sesame Workshop as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The people are amazing and the work is fun. The sector of the company that I interned with was extremely inclusive and really wanted the interns to be involved. The people in the company are very open to interns reaching out to other departments and learning about all of the different opportunities within one non-profit organization. The benefits are amazing with health care and many fitness classes. I learned a ton in this internship!

    Cons

    The one con that I did hear about often was that there was not a lot of room for advancement; however, I feel as though advancement is particularly difficult in most non-profit organizations.
