Pros

Good pay for an internship, work was fairly easy, given off when requested (unpaid vacation), some good people working there

Cons

Manager often just have me busy work which I often finished ahead of schedule. Often fight want to spend the time to assign more work to me, or bring me up to speed to learn new posts of the business. Was asked to collect data and projects unrelated to overall goal they were trying to accomplish. Was criticized by manager for seeking out work when he didnt.provide any

Heard that a large group of senior management was fired after I left...
