    Pros

    There was a concerted effort to give the interns meaningful work to do. Constant support and exposure to many areas of the company.

    There were no interns that I shared work with and it would have been nice to not work individually the entire summer.

    "Only if you can afford a pricey internship"

    I worked at AXA Advisors (More than a year)

    Pros

    Teaches you a great work ethic, perhaps even to an extremity. Everything is a personal investment of your own. Teaches you to get comfortable with cold calling which is a great thing to get comfortable with.

    Cons

    You will most likely not close a deal for at least 3 months, underwriting is a Very slow process in most cases.
    Every person I started with that left owed at least 2k to the company when they left, for me, it was about 5x that amount and I struggled financially while I was there.
    Many people are tired of being called by them but you do get lucky. You'll probably have some success if you are comfortable selling to people you know.
