    During my short time at CHASI I have found the office environment to be a comfortable, inviting workplace. I enjoy my CHASI family and my job is rewarding and challenging.

    Long drives to the office are not my faviorite part of working for CHASI but they take good care of employees for the amount of driving that we all do.

    Pros

    So much gained experience! I've been able to improve my writing and see real results as journalists have picked up my pitches. I like that my supervisors we all so helpful ad really wanted m to get the most of the experience.

    Cons

    I honestly don't have one! The only thing I would say is the office is kind of segregated lol. Each department is kind of off in its own world. I think every friday there should be like a bagel or cookie meetup in the lunch room. Just to get everyone talking to eachother more.
