I mean, it's okay. I've met with a few of the members and they're lovely people but I wouldn't say it's some life changing accomplishment or anything of the sort

I like it because I can usually meet someone whenever I travel somewhere new, so at the very least it's a good networking tool

Had a guy from Mensa help me out when I moved cities, so there's certainly some perks to being a part of the org

Idk about trying to join, it's not like you can study for it or something. Either you got what it takes or you don't not much more to it

I tried joining once for fun, I passed their little test but I wasn't really looking to make any type of commitment so I skipped on it.

I've been working here for about two years now, and I have to say, I love my job. The company culture is great and the people are wonderful to work with.

He just keeps telling me that if I want to get ahead, then this is what I need to do.
