I have been working at Liberty Mutual Insurance as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

The compensation was good(17/hour) as a sophomore intern, the amenities nice(had my own cubicle) and you can't beat the location. The large company also provides a lot of opportunity for moving around and strengthening your network given it's size. Business casual is also a plus too(it was a trial run this summer no idea if it's going to be implemented) plus good cafe and food services provided by the company.

Cons

The hiring process was a huge pain in the rear. My first interview was November on campus, followed by an email two weeks later to come to the office for the interview. They rescheduled me twice during January and I was told I would hear back in two weeks but didn't hear back for 3 MONTHS!!! After that I was called about my lack of owning a credit card, and needed to jump through hoops to provide proof I was an enrolled student. While an intern you could have compressed all the work I did to just a two week period. If it wasn't for the meetings which I was told by HR to keep my mouth shut during and the stupid busy work I got asked to do around the office such as filing I could have come in one day a week and got the same experience. The HR department seriously needs to get it's stuff together. Seriously disappointed in my experience here. I would advise interns to seek experiences elsewhere. Most of my work consisted of filing, preparing documents, or excel work lacking any real challenge or thought to it. I was essentially a secretary

Advice to Management

Fire literally everyone in HR, reevaluate the process which departments go through to request interns, and make your hiring process faster. A 3 month wait period is incredibly unprofessional on your behalf. Out of 20 or so interns I have developed close contact with only one-two have any serious considerations to returning to this company. The irony of the selection process is that it's so competitive(mostly brand name business schools such as BC and Bentley with gpas of 3.5 or higher) is that the students have better opportunities elsewhere in consulting, advisory, wealth management or public accounting. Step up your game liberty mutual
