    I worked at Fairwinds Partners as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Working as an intern over the summer was a great experience. I learned a lot about the industry and loved working for a small innovative company. I felt like I could contribute ideas and meaningful work even though I was just a summer intern. All of the employees were great and the office was a very good and open environment.

    Cons

    Some of the projects were very monotonous and dull. The training was pretty minimal and more would have been helpful. Because of this some of the tasks took a lot of background work.

    Clients seem to love and appreciate us.
    FairWinds is well liked and respected.

    Cons

    There's a lot of work to do and I wish we could identify new hires more quickly.
    I wish there was more upward mobility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good work hiring a CEO, I think it should pay off to have more consolidated leadership and clear roles and responsibilities among the management team.

    I have been working at Fairwinds Partners

    Pros

    My schedule was basically to come in whenever I had free time. They had a couple fun events that the interns were able to go to

    Cons

    All I did was sit at my desk and copy and paste things from one location to another. It was the most boring thing I have ever done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to have office get togethers, great people work there but its not very interesting. Stop demeaning people as well
