      In my job, I learned a lot about the field and actual applications of marketing and advertising theory. The people I worked with were very friendly and everyone had an interesting background/stories to tell.


      As an intern, compensation was nil, but the office culture was friendly and not stressful. It was a valuable office experience that maybe would have been made more pleasant by some kind of pay, but there's not much that can be done about that I guess.

        You get to be around some of the most interesting artifacts from American history and some of the most interesting people from America's present. Every day you learn something and there are so many brilliant people on every level of the organization.


        At least for my position, we were only granted a 30 minute lunch break and my hours feel exactly 0.5 short of giving me enough to receive benefits.

      HR Administrator

      The last company I worked perm with laid me off, and I'm trying to decide the best way to word it. What I currently say doesn't elicit negative feedback. What I currently say: The company determined that they had an immediate need for someone with a higher-level skill set in my position, so they laid me off. What my spouse (who has been a hiring manager) recommends I say: The company decided to restructure my position, and I was assured it wasn't performance related. Thoughts? Thank you.
