    Pros

    Great company with efficient system. They all tried to improve the working efficiency of each other's work, strengthening the cooperation of each team in order to save more time. Great staffs and managers. Perfect working environment.

    Cons

    They did not plan much work for interns since they were too busy to set up detailed projects. Length of internship was too short (about one month and that's all). That was one of the reason why the management was not able to assign much work to the intern.

    Advice to Management

    Actually interns can help the department a lot if the length of internship could be longer. Do not stick too tightly to what originally exists in there but have new people and new ideas come in.
