    Pros

    Great benefits as a part time employee. Health and dentail are both offered. Salary is great as well especially for an intern. Each organization is like a single entity as itself. Diverse workers. No micro management. Opportunties to grow is very highly. Many tools and resources for everyone.

    Cons

    Management is always out of the office. You hardly get one on ones with your direct manager. You never know how well you are doing.

    Advice to Management

    Try to meet with each employee one on one to let them know how well they are doing.
