Pros: everchanging, evolving work
A typical day in College Summit consists of long hours, yet rewarding, exhilirating, emotional, tumultuous and unforgettable. Working to create a college going culture in urban cities across the country is the most satisfying work ever. Doing it for a company that lives up to its mission statement is more than a bonus. Spinning perspective for a room full of hopeful teenagers with the world at the tip of the fingers can be unnerving because you must first take the possiblity walk that you're now inviting them to take. College Summit places as much into its staff as it does it students. So, the managment style is personable yet professional and fair. Being paired with a team of people whose mission is the same as yours is easy work-there are some challenges when ideas aren't agreeable but one thing the company has done well is to keep its staff memorable of the mission such that professional things aren't taken personally. The hardes part of the job is giving when you feel you don't have more to give and the most rewarding part of the job is seeing that 1st generational student go on to benchmark success for his/her family by completing high schoo and going on to complete a college education. Overcoming such obstacles for many of these students before College Summit never seemed possible but afterwards well they become their proof.
