    I worked at Claremont McKenna part-time

    Pros

    Claremont Mckenna provides a highly supportive environment that encourages growth in students' professionalism and intellectual curiosities, depending on the type of work.

    Cons

    Very few cons unique to CMC. I.e. there are cons typical of the type of role you work, but nothing that I would say CMC is particularly causing or failing to fix. For example, anyone in the events industry knows that when hosting live events, there can be crazy hours sometimes as well as difficult guests or ridiculous requests, some of which I dealt with as a conferencing (events) intern. However, I would expect... this anywhere I worked and as such was not something I consider unique to the company or the company's fault.
