Best Place to Intern

Ad Sales Intern (Former Employee)
New York, NY

ProsGreat program with tons of learning opportunities. The final presentation at the end of the summer was great and got to do a lot. Great entry if you want to go into Ad Sales.

ConsThey get busy so sometimes you have to find stuff to do.
Not paid in NYC is difficult.

Advice to Senior ManagementManagement was great and met with the interns a lot. Zaslav met with us a few times.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
