    Pros

    I interned here for college credit at CBS News. I have to say - I was mostly used for clerical/administrative/production assistant/gopher duties. I did make a lot of great contacts and get to meet a few celebrities here and there, but all my networking and connecting hasn't landed me much in the way of job offers yet. But in general fellow employees are great, pretty upbeat atmosphere to work in, and if I was given more responsibility and hands-on projects it would've made for a better overall experience.

    Cons

    update your technology; don't use outdated equipment

    Advice to Management

    don't throw away good talent just because they're at entry level positions


  2. "Great intern experience, sucky management"

    Pros

    DC is such a small bureau you get to know everyone - faces start to look familiar. Everyone is really nice and willing to help! Great resume builder!

    Cons

    on most days did have much to do, logging and live logging tapes was my general responsibility after asking for more work.

    Advice to Management

    get your stuff together! interns are real people too! NY and DC need to learn to get along - it's stressful when the entire office is in uproar over a story that NY doesn't agree with. Pay your interns! ABC News does!
