    IT Intern Review

    IT Intern (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsThe creative idea was definitely the biggest experience. Make it count!
    Management and my coworkers were super friendly. I had the greatest boss who tried to make everything work and knew it wasn't the most exciting job.

    ConsPay is really low for interns. They really try to squeeze every penny out of you.
    I learned everything in the first week and just repeated after. I had some weeks of absolutely no work where I twiddled my thumbs.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive the interns less mind numbing work

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    An Excellent Intern Experience

    Student Associate (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsExcellent HR Staff, Opportunities to meet with executives or heads of departments, opportunity to spearhead your own project as a student associate, and the overall family atmosphere. This is a great place to work and a great place to get a head start.

    ConsUnclear hours/expectations, some regular employees tend to be inappropriate, very much a "boys club". The most frustrating thing was the review at the end of my experience there, and I'm told this is a common issue. Also the pay is technically minimum wage, but it's not nearly enough.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf your student associate isn't doing something you want her to do, tell her. Don't let her keep making the same mistake until the very end of her experience there.

    – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good company to intern at and gain experience

    Intern (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsManagers are very willing to help interns learn about the industry and everyone is open to answering questions.

    ConsSome days were very slow. A lot of "busy work"

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive all of the interns a semester long project to work on and share at the conclusion of internship.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
