    Former Intern - Business Intern in Williamsburg, VA

    I worked at SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Probably the best part of the job is lively team spirit. Everyone seems to be "on board", which is partly related to polished HR practices and loyalty of many managers. There are a lot of benefits for every team member, such as unlimited free park passes and discounts on everything.

    Cons

    Monetary compensation is on the lower side, so you better make use of those non-monetary benefits they provide. Some of the departments/managers are of much lower performance than the others.
