Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
Pros – The internship gave the opportunity to get insight into financial operations and the process behind publishing. Coworkers and mentors were very helpful and provided assistance when needed. Served as a good starting point while business was my main interest.
Cons – Work consisted of primarily data entry or going through invoices and other sorts of paperwork. Few opportunities to work with other coworkers or for work that broke up the monotony.
Advice to Senior Management – Provide more opportunities for interns to get involved so that the work itself feels more rewarding. This being said, it was only an internship, so the extent that this could be improved may not be large.
Pros – Great work life balance, great mission, great team of employees
Cons – Outdated IT systems, but working on it.
Advice to Senior Management – Keep working on IT system
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
Pros – I guess they offered me a fairly big jump in salary, compared with my previous job.
Cons – Well, I don't like my boss; he is from Deloitte and he does not recognize your work and achievement. He also requires you to work long hours, to travel to difference parts of the country and to report to him constantly.
Advice to Senior Management – They need to improve the communication to the staff.
