    I worked at The Mill part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    It was a very welcoming experience, and the entire production office was extremely friendly and incorporating. I made a lot of inside and outside connections, and learned more than I could've hoped for.

    Cons

    Errands are often and sometimes long. Expect delivering/picking up packages, and traveling to across the NYC boroughs.
