    I have been working at Vera Institute Of Justice full-time

    Pros

    I love how engaged the entire office is with one another and each other's projects. I love how passionate fellow co workers are.

    Cons

    There aren't too many cons I can think of. I have far less check-ins with supervisors than I expected.
