    I worked at Paramount Pictures full-time

    Pros

    Great company culture. The people who work there are very pleasant and happy to be there. The intern program provides lots of learning experiences across departments.

    Cons

    The program is only ten weeks, which is fairly short compared to the duration of summer break. The company has also been struggling with their films lately.

    Advice to Management

    The studio needs to focus on developing new franchises, and ensuring higher quality of the films they release. Many films in the recent past have lacked the level of quality necessary to ensure success.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Paramount Pictures (Los Angeles, CA) in January 2013.

    Interview

    Met with a coordinator and a director. Very informal. Was wearing a suit and felt overdressed. Asked why I was interested in social media, favorite movies, etc. Got the feeling this position was more personality-based than skills based - as in, they were looking for someone who would click with the team. The coordinator had previously had that internship, so that does seem to encourage the idea that these internships could have potential for a full-time paying job.
