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

    Pros

    Compensation and benefits were pretty good for a non-profit, and, despite some of the organization's more controversial attitudes and policies over the years, they really do make a significant and positive difference in the lives of many families who live with autism. The times that you felt you were actually helping people (and doing it alongside dedicated and good people outside of management who worked there) sometimes...

    Cons

    Evidently most of the senior management structure there has changed significantly over the past year or two, but I can't imagine that they're not still being hampered by the incompetence of the top-level management there for the years I was there. The number of good, hard-working people they drove out or fired because they wouldn't tow the misguided organizational priorities or couldn't meet their unreasonable goals was...

    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!
