Pros

Able to communicate with others, endless opportunities to learn not only within your position, but the whole company. Everyone you meet truly has a servants heart and will go above and beyond to help you

Cons

The benefits include free (space available travel) and relatively low pay. The ability to fly is an incredible one, but also very tricky. Interns do not get any vacation or time off, as expected with it being an internship. But being able to travel on days besides friday evening and sunday, even if it is just once, would be amazing.

Advice to Management

Your great! keep up the good listening!

  1. Great company if you start as an intern, a little harder to move up if you don't.

    Pros

    Amazing Corporate Culture, benefits are awesome, and it truly feels like being part of a giant family.

    Cons

    Interns tend to get hired over Folks with company and outside experience for internal positions.This is especially true for Marketing and Communications positions.

    Advice to Management

    Don't post internal positions and hire external Candidates, or say that two years of experience with the Company is preferred and hire someone with Internship experience only.
