      Pros

      Gain lots of experience and potential to move up quickly

      Cons

      Overworked, underpaid, burnout culture, kind of cult-y, zero work-life balance. Super high turnover rate (understandably) but this makes things difficult for you because then you're constantly onboarding new team members

      Pros

      - Work Besties - Travel Opportunities - Supporting local & global philanthropic projects

      Cons

      - Burnout culture - Salary pay that worked out to be $8.50/hr - Felt pushed away from friends and family with mandatory workshops or event commitments on many major holidays. - No pay for working on stat. holidays, yes this is illegal. - Power structure causing hierarchical communication barriers - Hookup culture, everyone was sleeping with each other (especially in upper management) this made it very difficult to navigate work culture, communication, and was very uncomfortable for staff at the least. Overall the experience working here felt very cliquey and ruined what could have been such a great work culture. Many people work here to be with like minded people but it was toxic and promoted nepotism.
