- The Children's Campaign18.Oct 2017
Most times teams worked together very well. Open, honest, and to-the-point. Though I have to take off one star, because a few of us noticed some interns who'd been there a long time (and in paid positions) would occasionally blame others for their own mistakes, and start "office drama," however minor.
Freedom to work independently
After a few weeks, your bosses trust you enough to do your own work without their supervision. You are, however, occasionally monitored by your "superior."
The entire company is seated in one very large, open environment. If you need to talk to someone, you can just walk right up to them.
Everyone has equal opportunity here.
Attitude towards older colleagues
TCC mostly brings on college students, so there aren't many older employees. The ones who are there, however, are treated with respect.
This is a good starting internship while you are still in college. Upon graduating and leaving the company, a few employers were impressed with the work I did at TCC, which helped me get a career.
Overall compensation for your work
Only one or two interns are paid per team. These paid positions are reserved for senior interns. Meaning you would only get your paid position if that senior intern left.
Office / Work Environment
You can expect to sit on cheap chairs using a cheap laptop on top of cheap tables in an office with plenty of windows, but relies too heavily on harsh lighting.
Most interns at TCC are also students of local colleges and universities. TCC is very flexible with their hours.
It feels good working under a company that has such noble ideals.
I honestly cannot say how long TCC will be around for. It has noble goals, but internally it's hard to see how these goals can manifest into work loads and a larger work force
Again, depends on the team you're on, as well as the work load.
Inclusive / Diverse
For such a small company, there's a wide range of people. Different races, religions, age-groups, and areas of interest make for a very diverse workplace.
Suggestions for improvement
- Involve interns with activities outside of volunteering events. Those are nice, but showing interns how TCC advocates for legislation would be better. Also, rewarding hard working interns by paying them based off of merit, rather than seniority.
What I like about the company
Good starting internship which can introduce you to "the real world." For me it was more of a baby-step. It taught me more about how companies operate and my place in it... Something colleges can't directly teach.
Overall there's more good to working here than bad.
What I dislike about the company
Priorities on tech-related projects change too quickly, and usually are never completed. Uppermost management doesn't communicate with the organization as often as some would like.
