    I worked at Legg Mason as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone I worked with was incredibly nice and interested in helping interns learn and contribute to the success of the company.

    Cons

    There was no formal internship program the way there is at many firms. This meant that the experience of interns largely depended on the division they landed in.

    Advice to Management

    Developing a formal internship program would be a great way to cultivate talent and ensure that interns got the most out of their experience.
