A lot of important work for not a lot of pay.

I have been working at SEC

Pros

You get to be part of a team that is going after some of the people that make or break economies.

Cons

They should be more upfront about a person's chances for growth and advancement within the company. After a few months, I felt I was just being used.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The Student Observer Program is great and you guys are dedicated to making it a great learning experience for us. But a little more explanation about the fact that almost no one will get hired after graduation would have been good information.

    I have been working at SEC

    Pros

    The intern program was overall a really good experience. I learned a lot and enjoyed the other interns I would routinely work with.

    Cons

    There was no compensation unfortunately. There is a lot of stubbornness where everyone thinks they are right. There is a strict ladder of command.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase the training for interns. Try to get more money from congress so there can be more incentive for other interns to work there.

    I have been working at SEC

    Pros

    My particular organization was very relaxing and inviting to work for. The chief was always giving jokes not to make us feel that our duties are always serious.

    Cons

    Some colleagues were not very friendly and because you are mostly around lawyers they make you feel that you are nothing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would not change anything with the leadership of the way Mary Schapiro conducted her business with the SEC and the staff. They are always looked out for.
