    Pros

    The onboarding process of PMO interns is very hands-on from all levels of management. I enjoyed how welcoming and collaborative the entire PMO office was and liked that management routinely provided performance feedback.

    Cons

    Work load fluctuates as a PMO intern so there were a handful of times where I didn't have anything to work on.

    I worked at Bank of Hawaii full-time

    Pros

    The parking was cheaper than most jobs in town

    Cons

    Huge turn over rate in the department, had more than 8 hours of work everyday that had to be done before you could leave. They pay salary so that you don’t collect on over time. Most days were 9 hours or more.
