    I have been working at College Internship Program full-time

    Pros

    Great management and qualified staff. Students are the most amazing individuals to work with.

    Cons

    Disgruntled staff who write negative reviews that do not reflect the great work at this company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the focus on quality and celebrate student and staff success.

    I worked at College Internship Program full-time

    Pros

    Many staff are talented and dedicated; many students want to do some serious work towards career and college.

    Cons

    Lots of distractions from career and college related work. For-profit feel with lots of weekend events.

    Advice to Management

    Provide clarify & purpose for both families/students and staff so that job duties are clear to hired staff and families/students are aware of how much and what kinds of services can be provided.

    I have been working at College Internship Program full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Collaboration with qualified coordinators and their strong teams. Some are more qualified than management and are a pleasure to work with. They truly understand our student population as evident in the services they provide and passion they build in their teams and convey individually.

    Cons

    Internal promotions are rigged towards favorites. Some staff who are unqualified, uninspiring and frankly unfit, have been promoted to leads, admissions and director. Staff and student concerns routinely get ingnored. There is a huge lack of trust from management who invades privacy unwarranted and seeks back up from "yes men/women" staff, while they condescendingly reprimand as if dealing with young children. These complaints are ignored by National and regional manager as stated in previous reviews.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff regarding programming concerns, offer more full time positions to deserving staff. Be genuine and not offer cookies "bribes" to staff to speak openly with you. And for Pete's sake take some leadership courses and lead this team, quoting policy's is not always a good move. Go unscripted and unrehearsed we will have greater respect for you. Don't just act because someone shared their greivances with a visitor. You were long aware of the frustrations. Be appreciative, we make you look good at every center event. Promote those who are loyal and consistently go the extra mile with little to no reward. Improve salaries and work/life balance.

    "Horrible Management"

    I worked at College Internship Program full-time

    Pros

    Great co-workers, great opportunity to help students, and great opportunity to learn about techniques for working with individuals with disabilities.

    Cons

    Management is always on the hunt to punish, reprimand, and fire people. The founder of the company has left the company to his son who does not know what he is doing. They do not pay well for the education, skills, and experience required from those they hire.

    Pros

    I love my job. I love supporting this community of students and connecting with their families. My co-workers are awesome & supportive. Seeing student success is super rewarding!

    Cons

    Communication is not always the best. It is hard as a national company with offices all over the country to be sure that everyone is in the loop. Specifically, with changes in staffing. Not everyone is aware when someone comes or goes.

    Advice to Management

    Just a tad more communication.

    Pros

    They seek to hire highly educated individuals to fill open positions. Employees are caring, dedicated and willing to go the extra mile.

    Cons

    The executive assistant holds a higher educational degree than the current President of the company! I find this to be extremely interesting. Perhaps the "torch" should have been passed to a qualified candidate instead of just passed down.

    Advice to Management

    Stop blaming others for the culture that YOU created years ago and continue to encourage. It's been "your circus" for a good amount of time now and nothing has changed. I feel sorry for you but I can't help to laugh at all the craziness.

    I have been working at College Internship Program full-time

    Pros

    Freedom from strict curriculum means the ability to be flexible and innovate.
    Promotions are available to those to work for them.
    Atmosphere is casual and friendly - everyone gets along.
    Benefits for full-time staff are amazing.
    Every last staff member cares deeply about the students they support.
    Ideas from every staff member, no matter where on the totem pole, are welcomed and considered.

    Cons

    Management could be more strategic about how they allocate money.
    Class curricula, when existent, are very bare-bones, and staff lacks formal training from the company.
    Salaries are below market rate.

    Advice to Management

    Give as much attention to training and organization as you do to marketing. Paying employees their market worth will lessen turnover.
