“GBA is a small organization, so everyone essentially holds a Director position. That being said, they are all super smart and talented at what they do. It's been a great learning experience working with them. I liked that I worked with multiple people in the organization, and they always made sure I was included in all the meetings and events. One big project I completed were the staff bios for the website. Though I never got to see them published on the website, I did get to know every staff member. I also liked that I was heavily involved in the Emerald Evening materials and was super happy to see my designs displayed everywhere at the event. One of my bosses also made sure I was a team player in the projects and he would actually let me make changes and tell me everything every step of the way so the completed project was actually what we did together. The office is also very casual. You can come in whatever time you like and leave whenever you want as long as you work the full hours. It's also okay to work from home and take vacations. I also loved the events. Overall, my bosses were also very caring and one of them always made sure I had a ride home after events or if it was pouring outside.”
