    I worked at WGBH (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They treat the intern like a coworker. Responsibility increases as the position goes on. The company hosts monthly get togethers so there is time to network.

    Cons

    Not much growth opportunities in the company after the internship. The job isn't really challenging and can get pretty mundane at times.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at WGBH in May 2017.

    Interview

    Easy online application, followed by a phone interview with HR that was pretty quick and too the point. I felt pretty positive about my chances after that. Later the same day they emailed me to schedule an interview, which was 3.5 hours long. About a week later I received a generic email saying they went with another candidate. Everyone was pleasant to speak with during the interview but I think its unfair to drag candidates through that long and rigorous of an interview process not knowing how seriously you're being considered for the position. That is an unusually long time to set aside for a job interview.
