Great place to intern
Oregon State Advantage Accelerator Intern (Former Employee) –  Corvallis, ORJanuary 25, 2017
A very fun place to intern. The position offered a lot of ambiguity and expected accurate market research reports for cohorts and leads. It also offered helpful seminars that taught lean startup principles, the do's and don'ts of starting businesses, and how to identify promising business products or services. Overall, I really enjoyed my time as an intern at the OSU Advantage Accelerator.
Pros
Networking, Flexible, Fun
Cons
Not a place to intern that turns into a job/career

Teaching Assistant (Former Employee) –  Corvallis, ORJanuary 21, 2017
Good pay, good people. Minimal management.
It's great to help others and keep refreshed on your skills.
Sometimes you have to improvise, and that can be good but it can also have problems.
