    Pros

    Amazing senior management exposure throughout the program. Really quality internship experience, lots of training throughout the summer. My "intern position" felt like an actual job. HUGE focus on team work and talent development. Just a really great environment to work in. Relaxed, but competitive. Lots of opportunity for personal growth. Sign-on bonus for interns, plus good pay and overtime. I met the CFO, CEO, and many high level executives.

    Cons

    Not many cons. Some people in the program were family members of employees.
