    I have been working at ASI (Advertising Specialty Institute) full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Cafe + Starbucks, Froyo/Smoothies
    - Casual Dress, friendly atmosphere, fun annual events
    - IT department
    - Volunteer opportunities
    - Encouraged to take walks/exercise/eat well
    - On-site gym, daycare
    **They will suck in you with "perks"to keep you**

    Cons

    - You will do 3+ peoples jobs (they cut budgets left & right but pay for airfare/events/hotels/transportation/nonsense for upper management, no problem)
    - No guarantee of salary increase (get it in writing, if they say so)
    - No growth
    - Little to no training (as the managers do not know how to manage--their ASIUniversity does NOT train managers)
    - Health benefits are awful
    - HR concerned with "action plans" and not "actually" helping
    - Management inexperienced + only promoted if either: been here long, know the family/upper management friend, had a life event, did something outstanding, make them money, make them money, make them money (get it?)

    Advice to Management

    STOP throwing titles around to those that are not qualified.
    Managers are labeled "managers" and aren't managing anything, or know the first thing about managing.
    Ignoring/blaming employees who aren't managers/upper management on issues that are management's fault.
    Reviews are completely skewed to only "meets expectations" no matter how much you try, often only receive better if you make them money!
    Fix your benefits, review employees accurately if salary increases are not "based on ratings"as they say

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at ASI (Advertising Specialty Institute) (Trevose, PA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Simple process and no trick questions, straight to the point. They asked things off of your resume and just wanted to know what you were looking for in an internship.
