    Pros

    I had a great experience, learned a lot, felt included, and they were flexible as to which days worked best for me. I never had a bad day and the few times I was sick, I was sent emails ensuring that it was okay to be sick and to feel better. I love the people there and recommend the organization as one of the best places to work... after events there is free food and free swag that anyone can take once advertised as free to take.

    Cons

    A few days where I didn't have anything to do.

    Advice to Management

    None

    Pros

    Amazing people, important issue, amazing overarching ideal, conveniently located office, superb PTO policy.

    Cons

    Beauracracy, no career growth, too focused on virality, lack of structure, too reliant on corporate sponsors.

    Advice to Management

    Better promote and develop at the Coordinator, Associate and Manager level.

    Pros

    There are Baking competitions and other pot-luck type meals on a pretty regular basis. It's a pretty open-door policy type office, they are all good people and mean well.

    Cons

    It can get a little slow, but then when it picks up the sky might seem like it's falling. But it comes in waves and during certain events over the year so it isn't all the time.

    Advice to Management

    None! (maybe pay interns more, pretty please?)
