    I worked at ESPN

    Pros

    Treated like a full time employee, given many opportunities that full-time employees would have, not the classic "intern" experience, great opportunities to network within the entire company

    Cons

    The location isn't the most ideal, it's a big company so sometimes can feel lost in the crowd, really cold winters

    Let me sleep. Or I might make you.
