Good introduction to corporate world.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Pittsburgh, PA

ProsNot just photocopying and filing. Assign real responsibility and a mentor&manager to help you. Projects can have actual impact on company. HR maintains constant communication with interns and schedules weekly workshops and overviews. Pays for summer living (VERY nice for being downtown pittsburgh) and parking. A lot of face time with HNA executives.

ConsI'd say about 70% of the interns go to Pitt and 20% go to Penn St. Similar (but probably smaller) ratio for full time employees. Sometimes feel like the company doesn't attempt to hire the best and brightest (though there are very smart people in the company, I was able to work with many) - this is reflected in the pay. No outside of work intern events were scheduled the entire summer.

Advice to Senior ManagementAn Ivy degree doesn't guarantee business success, but it wouldn't hurt to pay more competitive salaries to attract better talent, especially at the entry levels.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
