    I worked at John Hancock as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Big company. Good pay. Great comrades.
    It was my first corporate internship. I learned a lot. Responsibilities were real and treated like an adult.

    Cons

    Old-school. Hard to grow within.
    Too many occasions to eat cake. A lot of cake.
    It was good at first but then it becomes too much cake.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less cake
