    Current Employee - Intern

    I have been working at Kaiser Permanente

    Pros

    - Exposure to many corporate processes that college students are most likely unfamiliar with before entering the corporate environment
    - Relevant and informative career/industry advices given from various senior and lower management leaders and coworkers
    - Flexibility of choice on what/who you want to learn from and what field you want more exposure in if you actively pursue them
    - Extremely friendly environment where everyone goes out of their way to make sure your need as an intern is fulfilled
    - A variety of rewarding opportunities and events that make lasting impact

    Cons

    - Things tend to move very slowly especially towards the beginning and the end of internship
    - Lack of overarching framework for intern responsibilities; intern's goal and objectives were not defined and set up clearly until a good portion of the internship passed
    - Managers are usually too busy to check up on intern's statuses, as a result down time is pretty significant; often must approach people actively to participate in projects and tasks
    - Much of interning was observing and listening rather than creating and hands-on experiences
    - Projects usually span in years; as a result, interns can only get glimpse of project(s) in operation
