    Pros

    Elegran is overall a very positive environment to work in. They value independence, but also self-growth through teamwork. As a graphic design and marketing intern, I was given the opportunity to take on full projects while receiving constructive criticism to help me excel. Management is respectful and responsive. All in all, interns have a solid exposure to the world of New York real estate.

    Cons

    It is a very quiet office. Talking is kept to a minimum in order to encourage efficiency. This can be both a pro and con.

    Interns are not paid but are offered a monthly stipend.

    Sometimes workload was low.

    Advice to Management

    Clearly outline the goals for your interns prior to hire. Have enough work to keep them busy and efficient. It will keep them happier and worthwhile for the office.

    Pros

    -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

    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

    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.

    Pros

    I found interning at Elegran very pleasant, the team was great and I liked the cultural diversity at the office. The location of the office is also extremly convinient as it is close to Grand central. I would say it was a good oportunity and I would recommend it.

    Cons

    The internship was unpaid but so it is in most companies. Apart from that I can't think of any cons.

  9. A valuable experience with a company where all employees are friendly and helpful.

    Pros

    It wasn't a hostile environment. Everyone there is friendly and easy to talk to. You are invited to events that the company organises which makes it easy to get to know others within the company.
    You get a lot of support as an intern. I was able to learn a lot during my time there.
    Even as an intern you are seen to be an important part of the company.

    Cons

    There are no disadvantages to interning there. I enjoyed my time with Elegran and would recommend it to others.

  10. I spent there a year as a full-time intern. I loved working there so I would recommend it to anyone.

    Get a higher stipend for interns in this very expensive nyc
