    I have been working at Cone Communications as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Interns are encouraged to tailor their own experiences through mid-term reviews with supervisors. Given plenty of responsibility and are valued on client teams.

    Cons

    Unpaid. While the experience is valuable, it's a lot of work for no pay.

    Social Impact Internship

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Cone Communications

    Pros

    Not an internship where you run and get coffee - lots of work opportunities, was constantly busy and in and out of meetings.

    Cons

    Social Impact was a lot more intense than other divisions - ended up working outside of intern hours and missing most lunch breaks. Also, the office culture wasn't my favorite and wasn't incredibly welcoming.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be friendly to the interns!

    I have been working at Cone Communications as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    Given lots of responsibility as an intern
    Lots to do daily from multiple account teams
    Wide range of expertise at the company which creates an idea learning environment
    Always food from clients/meetings ;)

    Cons

    Sometimes the organizational structure is a little bit confusing, but you get the hang of it. Also, interns are put in a separate room from the rest of the company so it's easy to feel closed off if you don't make an effort to reach out to your managers.

    I worked at Cone Communications as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The people are extremely friendly and the environment is very creative. You can create good relationships with your fellow interns, and the HR team tries hard to make learning experiences throughout the internship.

    Cons

    Unpaid, all interns are sectioned off into one room, sometimes there is a lot of busy work or down time, they don't write recommendations after the internship

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Unpaid internships are very difficult to juggle as a student living in Boston.

    I worked at Cone Communications part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Mentors and staff treat interns like colleagues. Your work and opinions count.

    Cons

    Integrating intern workspaces with those of staffers would make the experience a bit better.
