    Pros

    The quality of my "office" internship taught me more than I anticipated. Great role, learned plenty.

    Cons

    The quality of my "field" internship taught me less than I anticipated. Terrible mentor, learned very little.

    Advice to Management

    More emphasis on the quality of the mentors. They make or break the internship for us.

    Everyone loves to help you out for projects or reports, awesome campus, free learning resources, tuition reimbursement and certification prep classes are also offered on site. Health benefits are top-tier.

    Everyone wants to have meetings for everything, and sometimes you get thrown to the wolves during training. I generally like that, but not for such visible projects.
