Pros

No grunt work. This was a very hands-on internship where I learned a lot. There is a real team oriented atmosphere there. No one treated me like just an intern. I actually felt like a full time employee.

Cons

There is an intern pitch competition at the end of each semester. It requires a ton of work, and in the end you don't get anything out of it.

Advice to Management

Do not make online interns compete in the pitch competition. Their time could be better spent learning development or design.

    Pros

    Great opportunities for lower level employees or interns to contribute and get involved in a wide variety of tasks. Fun and welcoming environment employees. Interns get higher hourly wage compared to others available in the area (ie min. wage or unpaid internships...). Great downtown location--close to bus line and tunnel.

    Cons

    Entry-level salary can start off low compared to other consulting firms.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    Pros

    Great organization with the company. Very structured intern program. Numerous opportunities for interns to integrate within the company and to learn but requires taking the initiative to do so.

    Cons

    Boring and repetitive work. Does not require much skill or mental thought. It is important to understand that the work differs between project groups and this may not be applicable to all intern positions.

    Advice to Management

    At least try to understand that we, interns, are curious and intelligent beings. We would like to know what the work we're doing is for and how we are contributing, especially because the work is tedious and boring.
