Not Beneficial
Internship (Current Employee), Chicago, ILJune 25, 2014
Pros: free events
Cons: inconvenience
I have mixed opinions on Urban Alliance. I enjoyed the Program Coordinators outside of the workplace. Urban Alliance is like a second job and school. Sometimes I felt they asked for too much to be done and sometimes it could be very stressful. Many of the assignments asked of student were not always beneficial.
