    I worked at Washburn Center For Children as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Washburn holds excellent training seminars for employers, and most of them are available to interns, too. The organization is highly committed to providing quality mental health services to children and families. As an intern, it was inspiring to see how the passion and dedication employees have. Wonderful place to grow as a professional.

    Cons

    Prospective interns and employees should be prepared for a heavy load of case notes. Cancellations and driving can be stressful components of the position. Very rewarding, but also very time-consuming work.

    I worked at Washburn Center For Children full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This is a typical nonprofit environment - somewhat softer because they are a mental health services provider.

    Cons

    Management can be very slow and ineffective.

    I worked at Washburn Center For Children full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Candid, honest, three interviews was asked detail questions regarding accounting, fund accounting, grants, etc. Computer skills, like excel, word, also MS Dynamics. It was pleasant, but very detail.

    Cons

    The entity is "not for profit" and it brings certain limitations. However, it has some positive as well. Management doesn't have to chase immediate profit, and can focus on a long term perspective. But, if you want serious career, go to business oriented companies.
