    I worked at AKA NYC for more than a year

    Pros

    The work environment at AKA is so light and energetic. The employees seem to actual enjoy coming to work each day and everyone on the team works really well together! One of my favorite parts was how they celebrate everyone's birthdays. This really helps people feel included and appreciated. They also order in bagels and donuts every Thursday for their employees to celebrate the upcoming weekend and all the work that...

    Cons

    There aren't many downsides to working, or at least interning, at AKA. I thoroughly enjoyed everything that I did and learned.

    Advice to Management

    I wish that the interns had gotten to know the partners and department heads a little better. Other than that I think their intern program is great and I highly recommend it!

Aka has tons of cool Broadway clients so you’ll be in on some at cool shows. You can be a grad or an undergrad and there seems to be some flexibility with how many days a week you can work if you’re still in school.

    Cons

    Deadlines are fast and everyone is always super busy. They stay late a lot, though interns aren’t expected to. Be ready to work super fast, navigate tricky situations and figure stuff out on your own (ish). If you want to do broadway, then you should expect crazy fast paced, but I suppose it’s not for everyone. Intern stipend is pretty low and not enough to support yourself, so if you want to work full time, you’d better...
