    I worked at Capital Metro as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    The internship is a great exposure to Risk Management and Insurance. Everyone in the Risk Management department has been around for at least a decade, and they are all very good at their jobs.

    Much of the work is very basic; there is a ton of paperwork that flows through this office and as an intern you can expect to be copying, filing, scanning, and inputting every page. However, if you can follow directions and complete your assignments correctly in a timely manner, you will be afforded the opportunity to work on bigger projects.

    The pay ($11/hr) was not fantastic, but the flexibility in the work hours makes up for that. The office is open from 8AM-6PM, and interns are expected to work 20 hours per week. However, they will allow you to shift hours from one week to another to accommodate exam scheduling.

    Cons

    If you allow it, you will be just a copy monkey. Mike will not ask you if you want to work on special projects; if you want to do anything beyond data entry and filing you must seek it out and seek it out aggressively.

    Additionally, you will be working for the government. You will get the government employee experience. The driver's ready room is adjacent to the Risk Management suite, and you will hear a lot of conversations you really didn't want to. The office is loud, all the time. Relations with the other department in the Risk suite can be strained at times. You will probably also get volun-told to help with events for the Office of Diversity, which are often completely outside the scope of a business student's career.

    God bless you if you need something from another department. Your emails will be ignored, calls will not be returned, and any response you do get will come days later. If you need anything form someone outside of the Risk, HR, or Safety departments, save yourself the headache and make the trip across the building to their desk.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do something to ease tensions between departments and reduce the siloing.
