    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Community Reinvestment Fund as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You can do some real work. Great interaction with senior management

    Cons

    There was not that much work that you can do.

    Advice to Management

    Downsize the internship program, too many people in the office that did nothing but got paid.

    I have been working at Community Reinvestment Fund as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You will be contributing directly to their business through hands-on projects. Having a dedicated mentor and lunch events either with senior management and fellow interns further enriched my experiences.

    Cons

    Entry-level jobs might not appeal to recent graduates, as you need real experiences to understand their complex business.


  5. "the best company I have worked for so far"

    Pros

    Community Reinvestment Fund is the best company I have worked for so far. The atmosphere at CRF is very open and friendly, and you feel almost like a member of a family when working there. I received a lot of support and recognition from my supervisor and other people while working at CRF. There was always a very sincere desire to keep everyone in the company involved and on the same page on company's goals.

    Cons

    It's a relatively small business, so opportunities for career advancement within the company are pretty limited. Plus, with the economy getting worse, the core business of Community Reinestment Fund may be severely affected.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to give support and recognition to the employees.
