Internship: Positive atmosphere; little to no career opportunities

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
London, England (UK)

I worked at Penguin Group as an intern for less than a year

ProsI got a broad range of exposure across a couple of very different departments.

They're willing to give those who show initiative a great deal of responsibility.

People are very friendly and welcoming.

ConsSometimes the work (and this is true of any internship) is mundane. You can overcome this by asking for more responsibility and speaking up if you're not happy. They are very receptive and will listening to what you have to say.

Stipend is negligible.

You are unlikely to land a job after an internship.

Enriching and a solid place to work overall.
