    Pros

    This job has a tremendous work culture/environment. There is a tremendous sense of passion that goes along with every task and every employee that I worked for or alongside was constantly trying to get better.

    Cons

    There are long hours. Most nights you don't get to sleep until 12 and have to be up at 8 the next morning.

    Advice to Management

    Honestly the training and benefits that were provided fit the job well. I hope that the conference continues to grow (possibly internationally) and looks for new areas of study to cater to.

  10. An amazing learning experience!

    Pros

    You will change high students lives here and love every second of work. You will also become best friends with your co-workers.

    Cons

    For all the work you put in, the pay is pretty low. However, the amazing benefits (free food, free room and board, the pay for the flight) make up for the low pay
