Friendly people and an awesome break room. I was an intern, but I made some awesome friends. I loved working on the top floor with an endless supply of snacks and coffee.
There wasn't any opportunity for growth because I was an intern for a non existing department. Whereas, for the other interns they interned for people within an existing department. I was set up for failure. My "manager" treated me like I wanted her position, but her position wasn't anywhere near what I wanted to do nor what I was hired to do. As an intern, you're hired to get hands on experience and learn . Did I learn anything? No. But I sure taught my manager everything she needed to know! I was better off working with the marketing department. The marketing intern got hired as a full time employee, and we basically crossed paths with every project.
Advice to Management
Not much advice for management, just allow interns to work within their desired area and department. A Communications Intern shouldn't be interning for the Manager of Information Analysts. I truly believe the company should create a communications department or combine communications and marketing into its own department.
