    I worked at Nomura Holdings

    Pros

    On the job training was terrific. Everyone was very friendly and willing to answer your questions. I could just walk into the Director's office and ask a question at any time. Very good interaction with people from other departments as well.

    Cons

    The summer internship program was not very structured. We had a few events (networking, visit to Fed, exchanges, etc) but that was it, nothing really exciting. The firm could improve on formal training, and networking events for interns.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better review and discussion of full time job at the at of the internship. Right now, it's not part of the procedure.
