    I worked at CHA (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Had the ability to perform actual work for real clients, as well as an internal research project which was presented to the CEO and management team. Manager was focused on aiding growth and was extremely helpful

    Cons

    The only con was workplace interaction. With most of your day at a cubicle, it's challenging to make friends in the office. I reached out to other interns and got lunch with them, so by the end of the summer the problem was solved.
