    Pros

    The internship provides a great opportunity to be a college counselor and provide mentorship to young high school kids as they apply to universities abroad. Its one of the most fulfilling experiences I've had.

    Cons

    Strict work culture (friendly staff through) which is subject to personal interpretation. I liked it since it was challenging and pushes one out of comfort zone.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on providing good working environment for entry and mid-level positions. The bank has many clients thus can lead to overworking and fatigue at the workplace.
