    Pros

    Real impact work on a daily basis. Team members are always willing to help and teach interns. Abbott flies all of their summer interns to Chicago every year for training and team building activities.

    Cons

    Not all internships follow the same guidelines. Some interns have to have a final presentation while others have a less structured internship and just help out with other employees.
