    Cons

    Work wasn't challenging. Low compensation. No growth potential. No reference will be provided at the end of the internship, due to upper management requirement to avoid law suit - what a joke. Just a summer job. Go better places.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overhaul internship program.
