    Pros

    Great atmosphere. Whilst working at Elegran you will have amazing colleagues who will be happy to help you whenever you want. Interns are welcomed greatly, and once you have to leave the company you will surely miss everybody!
    Colleagues are open to answer any questions, as long as you let them see you want to learn something. Conversations are always great, not only business wise but also on a personal level.

    Cons

    There aren't that much opportunities for a 3-month internship because it's just not enough time to actually matter in the business of the company. I'm sure this is a general problem for short term internships though...

    Advice to Management

    Don't hire too many interns because there isn't always too much work to do. Furthermore, keep the atmosphere as it is, it truly is a young and vibrant company which is a pleasure to work at!

    Pros

    Constanr creation of content. SEO practices.

    Cons

    Some articles are published anonymously. There is little to no interaction with other coworkers within the company. There is minimal trust between supervisors and interns. Interns seen as disposable. Employees are too comfortable and are not open to change. There is not much to learn.

    Advice to Management

    The work environment lacks the effort to create a supportive and safe place for coworkers and interns alike to intermingle and feel accepted. There is a lack of positive communication, with most of all talking done online. Interns feel pushed aside and not taken seriously, and a lack of trust is apparent.

    Pros

    Interning at Elegran Real Estate last summer was a great experience. The culture was relaxed yet professional, and allowed for easy communication with the managers. The interns were given a great deal of responsibility and training, and the managers seemed to care about us. They never made us feel like we were "interns" and we were encouraged to become involved with every aspect of the organization.

    Cons

    I do not have many cons about Elegran. My only suggestion or con would be that I would have preferred an hourly salary rather than stipend.

    Advice to Management

    You are the best. Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    -Great management, invested time in teaching and explaining to interns and entry-level agents
    -The culture is pleasant and centered around sharing knowledge and succeeding as a team rather than individual competition
    -Employee diversity; agents and managers from many different countries and cultures
    -Open-minded environment

    Cons

    -The internship could have been a bit more structured, something they have probably improved by now
    -Interns are not paid

    Advice to Management

    -Continue to invest time in the entry-level positions, I think that is the future of the company and how you will succeed long-term
    -Enhance the relationship between the real estate agency side and the business development side of the business

    Pros

    The office is incredibly conveniently located and everyone at the office is great to work with. I still keep in contact with a few people I met last summer. Good first internship as it exposes you to the real world.

    Cons

    As a social media intern, your days can be kind of slow so sometimes you'll need to take initiative and create your own work to do. Also not paid, but possible to do for college credit.
