    Former Intern - Risk Officer in Obuasi, Ashanti (Ghana)

    I worked at AngloGold Ashanti as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    I worked as an intern on a one month rotational program at their office in Obuasi, Ghana. Great work ethics and the employees are really nice. As an intern I learned a lot of things within a short period.

    Cons

    Maybe if the internship period could be extended to two months. I know they do that so they can take more interns.
