    Pros

    Management is understanding and flexible. Meet interesting people every day. Learn about broadcasting industry. Parking pass. Good part-time job while student.

    Cons

    You have to wake up really early for morning shows. Atmosphere can be hectic during on-air times but that's to be expected. Everyone loves it there so no one leaves making it hard to enter as a full-time employee.

    I worked at C Span full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The C-SPAN team has a sense of purpose. Employees are intelligent and interesting people. Coverage is genuinely non-partisan.

    Cons

    The managers are also on-air hosts, which puts producers in an awkward position, as it is hard to produce your boss.

    Advice to Management

    Invite more input from editorial and technical teams.

    Pros

    The company culture is unmatched. Everyone is friendly, goal driven, and united around the mission of the company. The executives are highly approachable and appreciative of new ideas.

    Since the company isn't extremely large, the opportunity for upward mobility can be slow moving at times.

    Pros

    It's clear that management truly cares about your success. As an intern, you're given numerous opportunities to sit down with higher level executives to discuss your goals and the direction of the company (especially Brian Lamb, who is known to come check on interns in the break room). C-SPAN was definitely my favorite internship during my undergraduate career.

    Cons

    Few opportunities to be hired on after end of internship.

    Advice to Management

    Keep using your interns as a resource!

  8. "Great company to get into the industry"

    Pros

    Great learning experience, laid back

    Cons

    A little too formal, specifically when it comes to dress code.


  9. "Intern"

    Pros

    The staff at C-SPAN was very friendly and involved in the internship experience. There was easy access to all levels of management and we were encouraged to speak with the CEO and founder on multiple occasions.

    Cons

    They hired too many interns for some sections- 2 interns were doing the work of one person, which made for some boring days

    Advice to Management

    Keep being involved with interns and make sure they are challenged enough
