    I worked at Autism Speaks full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    you may be able to help someone once in a rare while. they have created some good changes in insurance.

    Cons

    inflexible mismanaged misguided non-profit is focused on making money more than actually helping people who need it

    Advice to Management

    understand autism and how it is effecting families. focus funding on real solutions. stop the dog and pony show and really help people.

    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!
