    Pros

    The company gives you ample opportunity to prove that you can be a true asset to the team.

    Cons

    HIGHLY bureaucratic, stuck in old times. Its 2015, although the company seems to be showing improvement into the new century, they are very much stuck in their old ways. The company uses a highly antiquated system of hierarchy which at times can be frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Reassess this highly hierarchical status for one that is more relaxed

    I worked at Sumitomo Mitsui Financial Group as an intern

    Pros

    Had a wonderful supervisor that took time to advice me and gave me enough autonomy to do work on projects that I wanted. Lots of ad-hoc, BAU work to help me learn groundwork. Good work-life balance. Got the opportunity to interact and present to headquarters in Tokyo.

    Cons

    Not much interaction with other interns. Not enough diversity within the company and within the department.

    Advice to Management

    Be more prepared for the internship programme, ensuring all supervisors are on the same page when it comes to achieving KPIs pertaining to the internship programme. Have a more structured outline of the internship programme.
