Summer Intern, Okay Experience

Intern (Former Employee)
New York, NY

ProsGood introduction to the world of finance if you have little to no experience.

ConsThe job depends a lot on who you are assigned to. I had too little work and it was limited to mostly filing or helping the brokers use their computers. Other brokers took a little more time teaching their interns.

It's luck of the draw for who your are assigned to. When I was there they offered the interns a choice of doing a little bit of everything or specializing in operations or executive. The interns who choose the latter two were miserable and had little to know face to face time with anyone who could advance their career.

Advice to Senior ManagementMake more of curriculum for the interns, we had too little work to do.

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