I worked at Boston Public Health Commission as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

As an intern, my supervisors were always willing to help me fully understand the scope of the project and were actively involved in my learning experience. They made sure that the assignments I had were on par with my expectations and the expectations that my degree program had. All in all, I learned so much from this experience and I'm confident that the skills I learned here will help me go far in the field!

Cons

Some downsides include the actual location of the building-- the fringe Dorchester area is a little scary to be in sometimes. During my time at BPHC, there were several robberies of people walking in and out of the building as well as car break-ins. Kind of scary, but nothing that building security wasn't actively trying to reduce.

    Pros

    Dedicated, professional work staff with their eyes on the goal. Great benefits, ample opportunity to learn new skills and languages, friendly environment.
