I loved my time working for them. The pay was great, the job was rewarding and my coworker's were the best. I worked during the Ebola outbreak in 2014
ORISE Fellow in Atlanta, GA
on April 6, 2021
It's a good starting place for recent graduates to gain work experience if you don't have better offers yet. But the learning curve may not be steep enough if you want to learn a lot.
Intern in Atlanta, GA
on March 25, 2021
I was a graduate student intern at the CDC and overall had a middling experience. I wasn't paid (which I know, government internship) but I would have appreciated something — literally anything, even a small stipend — because I felt undervalued and overworked.
