    Pros

    Working for STAR and with STAR is a real treat. Their programs help improve the lives of children all over Los Angeles. The office atmosphere is very laid back and everyone is very friendly. All of the employees are helpful and engaging! I have learned tons about managing people and organizing events working for STAR.

    Cons

    The parking at the offices is very limited and you must own a car to work for them as the schools are all over Los Angeles.

    Advice to Management

    Please buy more parking space!
