pros and Cons of Sesame Workshop
Project Coordinator (Current Employee), New YorkNovember 4, 2014
There is a clear vision and strong commitment to the mission of the organization. The teams are constantly coming up with innovative projects that leverage the power of both the Muppet characters and the Sesame brand itself. Being a part of an inspiring and mission-driven organization is fulfilling and satisfying.

However, there are limited opportunities for recognition, professional growth and fair compensation, no transparency between departments, entitled management, everyone's got an "agenda", unproductive culture of meetings where staff uses the time to "do the work" they should have done prior to.

Domestic Researcher (Current Employee), New York, NYJuly 1, 2013
Pros: flexible schedule
Sesame Workshop is an established education children focused non-profit that promotes critical development skills through media focused programs such as television shows, educational apps, and classroom lesson plan engagement. As a freelancer I conduct domestic research studies in the greater New York City area. I also execute testing of new products (apps, computer games, tv shows) with children and facilitate educational focus groups with parents/caregivers. After all of the data is collected I then enter and analyze quantitative and qualitative research data.

This is a great place to start. People are extremely nice and willing to share their knowledge and experiences. As an intern, I not only get to learn a lot of professional knowledge but also have chance to lead in a project.
