    Intern

    Anonymous (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat company to start off in and gain experience in your field. Interns are encourage to network and attend as many events as possible.

    ConsHoulry pay is only $10... No room for growth. HR DOES NOT HELP the interns land a Full-time opportunity after graduating...

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop being cheap! Give your employees some incentives to come to work. Offer them screenings to movies or shows show them you care about them!

    Great experience

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat brands, great benefits, lots of opportunity and smart people.

    ConsMany business units have become super specialized, limiting growth.

     

    As an intern there, I had a good and challenging experience but walked away having gained few new practical skills.

    Intern (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsChallenging - every day was something new that kept you on your toes

    ConsInterns would work long and frankly boring hours

    Advice to Senior ManagementIncentivize the internships more. Long and difficult hours are not always especially motivating for interns

    Internship

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) San Jose, CA

    ProsLive news is a sink or swim environment and it's a great training ground for interns if you show that you want it.

    ConsI worked for free, or rather, college credit, but now they pay interns.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHave a better training program for interns. Keep an eye on those that excel, rather than churning through new ones. That's just a waste of time, and thus, money.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
