    Pros

    The type of work you're given here as an intern is so elusive especially as an undergrad student. Other companies usually will slave interns away to do boring data analysis, or secretarial work, but L Brands truly values young talent acquisition and retention to the point they expose interns to all facets and aspects of the company. With awesome and personalized management assigned to interns, alongside multiple HR partners, interns have the autonomy and time to explore different functions within the company, whether it be through shadowing, or having 1-1 meetings with senior management within the company. It's a fast paced and casual environment with a culture that's so inclusive and friendly that you begin to forget that you're on a payroll. That being said, don't expect in with nothing but free time. The work is intensive and your progress and assignments should be thorough. Leadership at L Brands definitely holds associates to a high standard, and if that standard is met, you can begin to expect career development.

    Cons

    The only downside is that you won't ever get to know everyone at the company since the company is so big (which isn't a bad thing overall).

    Advice to Management

    Keep up great management focus on interns. So far my manager has been super helpful and has been prioritizing my internship experience. This upkeep will payoff in the long-run with loyal and long-term retention of young talent.
