What I liked

It was a very low pressure and friendly environment! All the professional staff in the office are very helpful and nice, and they are always there for guidance and assistance. It feels very much like we are all working together as a team to reach our goals as an office.

What I wish was different

I doubt this could have been different, but the workload was very erratic; some days i would be extremely busy and some days there would not be much to do. So having work be a little more spread out would have been nice.


I think just trusting that everything will get done. There are a lot of things that you won't know how to do or you won't know how to handle, but at the end of the day in the CPO you're always learning and there will always be someone to help you get things done.
