    Pros

    Company seems very interested in retaining and growing employees, lots of employee functions and get-togethers, very easy to get to know co-workers and ask for help across departments, hours were great

    Cons

    Day-to-day operations were boring, unexciting work, catering to high net-worth individuals was sometimes a pain especially clients that were in a rush (but these experiences were few)

    Advice to Management

    Emphasize more client functions.

    Pros

    Interesting work with interesting and intelligent people. Comfortable work environment in the sense that it was easy to communicate with both peers and supervisors.

    Cons

    Limited interaction with other interns, and the intern project was not heavy on analysis. More to do with improving internal lines communication, which is also quite important.
