    I have been working at Art Institute of Chicago as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Fun, interesting colleagues who are invested in their work; exciting and very busy atmosphere; amazing galleries to stroll around during breaks

    Huge institution, can be easy to fall through the cracks a bit if you don't have people watching out for you or you're not assertive enough
