    I worked at WestLake Financial Group as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Somewhat laidback and business casual environment. It is a small company so there is little visual semblance to corporate America, which worked well for me considering this was my first internship. Employees are all very friendly. Learned a lot about IT that I would have never touched upon in university coursework. The company seems to have hit a low point before I arrived, but appears to be on the rise again; I believe there is a positive outlook for the future.

    Cons

    Not extremely organized, particularly in terms of assigning tasks to me. There would be days where I would be constantly doing something productive and others where I would kill time for the majority of the day. The tasks I performed didn't line up exactly with what I was hoping for (more technical programming things, but I knew what I was getting into).
