    Pros

    Awesome environment and mentors. You learn a lot about urban development and all the work that goes into making connections with the right businesses that will help benefit such a successful non profit.

    Cons

    There were barely any cons. I was on the job, they treated me like an employee and not an intern and what you experience will help you down the road if you are planning on going into urban development.

    Advice to Management

    keep expanding and continue you effective branding tactics.

    Pros

    Member-driven organization with smart, exciting, capable members

    Cons

    Advice to Management

    Put in place more mentorship or job growth opportunities; look to current, experienced staff to promote within the organization rather than outsourcing upper management.
