The FA's are great, but the internship program itself is lackluster.

Pros

The atmosphere is great; can't beat working in a skyscraper in Downtown Chicago. The people are also really quality.

Cons

The intern gatherings were mostly seminar styled gatherings, and there isn't much of an opportunity to meet more than a few interns over the course of the internship. It would be better if the interns could be gathered every once in a while for the sake of mingling.

Advice to Management

Have social intern events.

    Pros

    Great learning experience, Good one to one mentor relation, Guiding colleagues, Different team activities, Good working conditions

    Cons

    Not much choice given to the type of work you want to do as intern

    Advice to Management

    Should be more flexible to what interns want to do, HR promised to keep that in mind but in the end I could not make a choice and had to do the role that was given to me.

    Pros

    Opportunity to learn and grow professionally and personally. Ability to work from home when necessary. The people, the work environment, the global community, learning to appreciate the different cultural work ethics and how they interact with and affect those in the US.

    Cons

    The hours can sometimes be brutal. Some people are concerned only about their careers to the detriment of their working relationship with others. The line manager "silo" mentality can be challenging to work with. The banking industry's general tendency toward criminal behavior at the upper management level when the government relaxes its enforcement of regulations.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that ethics is not just some college course, it should be the guiding force not only in business, but in your personal lives as well.
