    Pros

    Have the chance to closely work with seniors since the team is not very huge. They are willing to hang out with me even after work.

    Cons

    I feel like they still over-rely on the deals with China SOEs. And they do not have a very strong pipeline of deals in regions outside Greater China region.

    Advice to Management

    Hopefully the management team would care more about the training of the internship and pay more attention to the recruitment process and make it more standardised.
