    I worked at Dimensional Fund Advisors as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Learned about their mantra, the Efficient Markets Hypothesis; my department was very keen on introducing me to managment; you do not feel like the coffee-intern; no long hours

    Cons

    Sometimes you have little to do, simply because the people above you can't pass their work onto you as an intern

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow interns to work across departments, so more stuff gets done and the interns aren't idle
