    Pros

    Great projects and work experiences for interns. Intern program includes biweekly meetings with all interns and various departments.

    Cons

    Not many cons to share other than the internships are unpaid. Still worth the experience, though!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing! It was a wonderful learning and working experience and I was happy to have it.
