    Pros

    Phosphorous is globally limited, and will run out in the next 100 years. Aquaponics will save humanity by meeting plant phosphate demand while incorporating an extra element of productivity through fisheries.

    Cons

    Start-up company. Internship currently is on an hourly wage rather than salary. I need a salary because I have student loans and need reliability of income, as well as a higher income.

    Advice to Management

    Continue with controlled and steady growth. Hire your Water Quality Intern as a full-time employee after graduation in May. There is huge potential for growth and success, especially if you build a strong team.

    Pros

    Small, welcoming company, good business model and eco-friendly ideals.

    Cons

    Work is repetitive and dull, and it isn't always easy to implement changes or new ideas

    Advice to Management

    Respect everyone's ideas, make employment decisions clear from the outset, present a united front to employees.


  3. You can make a difference, but not much revenue.

    Pros

    Work in an upcoming field with new technology. A lot of responsibility and ability to create new knowledge. Advance sustainable food consumption.

    Cons

    Employee health hazards often disregarded. Insufficient pay with 'potential' for increases in revenue that will likely not be realized.

    Advice to Management

    Employees invest effort and time based on motivation and incentives. If you provide disincentives rather than motivation, anticipate that quality employees will go elsewhere to feel valued.
