    I have been working at C Span full-time (More than a year)

    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.

    Cons

    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!

    Pros

    - Excellent staff that is willing to bring you into their projects and give you feed back
    - A lot of hands on work in production
    - Great way to get experience in broadcast journalism
    - Room for growth after the internship

    Cons

    - There can be slow days if your department isn't covering anything
    - Some departments are really small, so it isn't as easy to meet as many people

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing, possibly emphasize what kind of projects each department works on

  8. "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

    It's a great place to work. You get a sense of community there. Very nice compensation and benefits. I actually love my job ! Also, there is a gym there where you can have access to if you are full-time.
