    Pros

    There are many opportunities to learn new and highly marketable skills as an ALTA intern (meeting management, professionalism, databases, conference planning and RFP process, etc.).

    These internships are paid and metro accessible.

    Employees are knowledgable in their processes and in general of the history of the industry.

    Cons

    Employees make fun of and gossip about interns on days the interns aren't in the office.

    Don't expect a full time offer after graduation.

    Don't expect much after you leave the job - the employee who spoke with the company managing my background check for another job did not do his/her due diligence when checking my employment dates. I had to prove that I worked for the association using my tax information. This was hypocritical considering the association advocates a set of Best Practices.

    Advice to Management

    Interns play a critical role in the duties performed by the association. That needs to be recognized.

    I worked at ALTA as an intern

    Pros

    Looks great on your resume, paid internships hard to find in DC area, lots of complimentary food/snacks

    Cons

    They work interns 40 hours a week with no benefits, most of the work is bureaucratic, no room for advancement, also very cliquey...... turnover rate for part time people is high and done on purpose. if you don't fit the typical dc yuppie mold you won't fit in here. also unprofessionalism is common

    Advice to Management

    Hire entry level people to do the work you have interns doing. Intern doesn't equal full time entry level employee...

    Pros

    I had fun working there. My communication skills improved because of the member communication. I got a fairly decent education in job benefits as well thanks to my manager.

    Cons

    A bit informal (but that can be good sometimes), not a lot of room for career growth.

    I hate that you had a bad experience, but this isn't the same ALTA. We are located in Washington, DC.
