Becoming familiar with icons of design is very inspiring. Learning and interacting with them is the only reason this is worth it.
Working with designers with a bloated ego can be truly painful. Count your blessings so that the team you work with wont have this issue. Experience at the company varies wildly from working under different partners. A lot of tasks as intern are menial. You could be learning, earning and doing more elsewhere. Work is outdated.
Advice to Management
Evaluate success of work more critically. Recruit inspired designers interested in innovation, beyond pursuing the same idea that partners are proposing over and over. Watch out for predatorial employees.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Pentagram Design (New York, NY) in February 2017.
I showed my portfolio on my laptop. The interview was with two Senior Designers who then told me a little about the work environment and we ended with questions. They didn't ask many difficult questions. They made it very comfortable, it was more of a show your work and see if you fit type of interview.
