    I worked at Ericsson-Worldwide as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Worked at own pace, allowed to work from group to group, friendly team members who are willing to help

    Cons

    Slow and often boring tasks, you have to be a go getter to work on more interesting problems. Often as an intern, you get put on small bugs and tasks that don't matter as much. However this isn't to say you won't learn anything, you just have to put in effort
