    I worked at Autism Speaks full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Close to transportation... Good location, that's it! Though food options in the area are not great. The medical benefits are not that bad actually.

    Cons

    It's a big mess. Don't do it. Everyone is confused, overpaid, exhausted, under-pressure (or threatened) and there's no real organization. Ask anyone. Besides that, no knows anyone in the office, people barely talk to each other, not even in the kitchen, there's no real "team" or "culture", even when you try hard. Everyone is in their own little hell. Lots of gossiping. Lots of internal struggles over donors' dollars...

    Advice to Management

    This is work, it's a non profit no less. Not a zoo. You can't be yelling around at your employees. You can't keep them engaged for what you pay or ask of us. You can't be moving people around based on your daily whims. HR is a joke if you report something. Disgraceful.

    I worked at Autism Speaks for less than a year

    Pros

    Coworkers and management could be friendly at times I got some experience in the field I want to go into

    Cons

    My supervisor was out of the office for most of my three month internship I was given three tasks over the course of three months I could not leave my desk for the entire day, the office was unbearably cold. I was sick all the time. I worked almost 300 hours and I made $400 off a stipend. This is an issue with most internships taking advantage of college students, but this was by far my most unfair wage.

    Advice to Management

    Have weekly meetings with your interns Make sure all of the interns are given the same amount of work and CREDIT Treat your interns better! Give them PAY not a stipend or a credit!
