    Former Employee - Interntional Post-Production Intern in New York, NY

    I worked at Focus Features as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    They really invest in the development of their interns

    Cons

    To get in the door on any level very competitive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Structure your internships to be possibly essay based and ask more about candidates. The company seemed most partial to NYU and Columbia students.
