Pros

Everyday I have the opportunity to meet individuals who hold positions that are brand new to me. I get the chance o work on projects that are unlike anything I have ever done before. Every experience is a learning experience. Through my internship, I am learning what I like and what I don't like. Figuring out what I don't like will only help my future career.

Cons

As an intern I would have enjoyed working on a larger team where I could interact with different people and on different projects every day.

Advice to Management

If you have an intern--give them the responsibility of a large project with a deadline. Learning about deadlines is important, but it would also be nice to contribute to a large project and have the opportunity to present the work you did all summer. This is a great way to end your internship filling like you accomplished something that will assist your team even after your 12-weeks end.

    Pros

    Allstate is very invested in bringing in and training young talent. They spend a good amount of time on their training unit and are modernizing and upgrading many things, both in technology and around the office.

    Cons

    There aren't always resources available to interns, and the committee in charge of the interns isn't all that great. As with most large companies, office politics are a pain to deal with.

    Advice to Management

    Be open to new ideas, and make sure your company goals and initiatives are feasible.
