    I worked at Ontario Ministry of Community & Social Services as an intern for more than a year

    Pros

    Note, my review is of an intern whose job title was slightly ambiguous.

    The office was very relaxed, though it got quite busy closer to product release dates. If you prove your competence you'll be given more interesting work or even request your own projects to work on during down times. We were also given the opportunity to experience all aspects of the project cycle such as development, testing and business analysis.

    Cons

    It is a government position so initiative to work harder in the office may not be frequently seen. Still, a great place for internship; How hard you work is up to you. Not sure how great the prospects are for promotion or further career opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing. It's great that you listen to your employees and take their suggestions to heart.
