    Pros

    -For a summer intern still in college, the pay is top notch.
    -Friendly team members.
    -Flexible schedules (I worked 9 hour days and took every other Friday off).
    -Company culture is teriffic.
    -Employees are valued for their hard work.
    -Fun internship activities (ex. Boat tour on the Potomac).

    Cons

    -Sometimes the work felt mundane.
    -Depending on which department and supervisor you land, you can either have a great or horrible experience.
    -Some employees aren't the sharpest tools in the shed.
    -In 2010, they completely redesigned the internship program, by randomly selecting interns, and not inviting back successful interns, as well as children of staff members who had recently been interns.
    -Possible OCC and OTS merge means job scarcity and limited opportunity for recent graduate employment.

    Advice to Management

    -Change the internship program back to how it was in 2009 and before.
    -Allow interns to fill out a survey of their strengths, weaknesses, and interests, to better allocate resources.

    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are great

    Cons

    When the president of the United States says that he's going to abolish where you work and politicians liken senior management's abilities to that of meter maids (not that there's anything wrong with meter maids), seriously decreases employee morale and faith.

    Advice to Management

    An organization is built by people, not by ego. Treat staff as adults, and you will get a gown-up organization.

    Learn to manage people not just yourself.
