    Pros

    A company with real values: When you work there you understand how a non profit really works and how amazing it is that people are so devoted to that mission. The office is friendly, fun and relatively informal.

    Cons

    The work is relatively easy and seems very administrative. I didn't feel significantly challenged over the course of my time there.

    Advice to Management

    I think Smile Train does a great job of building camaraderie within the office. There should be more transparency between departments so more groups can collaborate. It would be nice to see more quantitative people working on the projects.

  2. Great Learning Experience

    Pros

    Open Door Policy
    Smart and Motivated Employees
    Run like a competitive business (very corporate due to CEO's past history)
    Exposure to all areas of business as an intern
    Completed interesting projects and spoke with great mentors!
    Very nice work environment, employees get lunch breaks and it is a 9-5 day for interns
    Flexibility on the part of the management

    Cons

    Donor Relations can sometimes be boring but is such an important aspect of the business
    No Established Internship Program
    I cant say anything about the company long term positions- I wasn't there for long enough, overall people seemed content with there work
    Unpaid position

    Advice to Management

    Create an internship program, overall I think that Smile Train has a lot to offer recent graduates and undergrads and I am sure can always use a hand to help with donor relations, an internship program would be an asset to the company!
