Pros

Free lunch at the home office, staff is well trained, managers have top notch talent, lots of networking opportunity and clubs

Cons

They don't hire much in the investment departments at home office. 1 person doing the job of several at another firm. While many internships are a "try out" for being hired, this is likely not one of them.

Advice to Management

Not much, the reason they don't hire is that nobody leaves. People are obviously happy and performance is great, so keep up the good work.
