    "Growing pains"

    StarStarStarStarStar
      Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

      I worked at Autism Speaks full-time

      Pros

      Passionate employees dedicated to the mission of aiding families challenged by autism.

      Cons

      As essentially a start-up, there was a always a sense that we were flying the plane while it was still being built. Exciting, but nerve-wracking, too with systems that weren't always equal to the task.

      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!
