    I have been working at The Headfirst Companies full-time

    Pros

    The people who work at Headfirst make it what it is. It is a talented, driven, young staff of incredibly impressive people. The people are far and away the best part about the job. It is fun going to work each and every day.

    Cons

    Hours can be long in and around the summer (to be expected at a summer camps organization)
