    I worked at Lansing Symphony Orchestra as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You are in a great office environment. Some of the people have highly professional attitudes. I did get some experience in a nonprofit environment, although limited.

    Cons

    Organization broke the agreement presented by my university for my internship. My adviser almost pulled me from the program, since I was not gaining enough new experience. I was mostly recreating paperwork, logging names into databases, forwarding phone calls, and other secretarial/receptionist duties. Most of the time, I just sat in the office and did nothing. Only in the last weeks of my internship there did they give me a project I could really gain experience from, and by then, it was far too late to complete the project by my final day with the company. I also drove everywhere to deliver pamphlets for them, usually paying for parking as well, without return compensation for gas or parking...with an unpaid internship, which I was also paying for through my school for credits. What a waste.

    Advice to Management

    Allow interns to work on more projects or schools won't allow their students to use your organization as credited internship experience. I know my program will no longer be using you.
