    Pros

    Great company who cares about nurturing it's intern and focusing on development and growth. Plenty of opportunities to use your abilities to impress management and satisfy clients. Overall, wonderful experience and best internship I've ever had!

    Cons

    Location of the headquarters is very deep in long island. Not bad if you don't mind the commute.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great internship program! I loved my summer with NPD; however, HR needs to be more structured when it comes to hiring interns. We are a highly prized commodity in the job market and it is unfair to us to be in the dark as far as the progress of our employment for so long.

    I worked at NPD as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    It's very easy to get time with top management to ask any questions you have about the company, their area of expertise, etc.
    People work there often for many years, so it's likely that any person can point you in the right direction to get things done outside of your department.
    Summer hours available to interns.

    Cons

    It's hard to cover NYC's living expenses with the salary.
    Commuting requires a car, or train. Train is expensive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!
