Fun, productive student employment opportunity that provides pre-career experience

Marketing Team Member (Current Employee)
Rochester, NY

I have been working at RIT (Rochester Institute of Technology) part-time for more than a year

ProsThe company environment and personality is very friendly and diverse. Working at CAB leads to experiences and opportunities that are unique to the organization. We get to work during fun events and meet big name acts as well. The office itself is very open and that allows for a lot of collaboration and input from all areas.

ConsIts easy to get so sucked into the culture that you find yourself over-extending to make ends meet occasionally. The fun aspects of the job are sometimes balanced by some more stressful decision making and difficult situations.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
