    Pros

    The managers sincerely care about your development and growth throughout training and the internship. The training is a blast and all expenses paid. The summer is very hands on- not a lame job where you are sitting behind a desk all day. After the internship, the career partners actively seek you out and want to interview you!

    Cons

    I wish we could have had more time to reach out goal; we were close.

    Advice to Management

    Did a great job- I was in contact with my manager whenever I needed her. She made me motivated to work hard.

    I worked at AroundCampus (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Got Amazing experience and training in Sales. Job offers after. Working for a company that really cares and tries to help you after the internship

    Cons

    Very difficult work and pay may not seem like its worth it, but the experience and job offers after is.
    Payment for Work is not what it should be

    Advice to Management

    more incentives for top earning employees. The training was good, be more upfront with what the internship is during the initial interview
