    Great work environment, they realize you're an intern and allow you to have a great work-life balance, the work week is capped at 40 hours, you got lots of face time with executives, you had analyst work (I never had to get anyone coffee), my project was applicable to the business and they still use it now that I'm gone

    Great internship. Would recommend to anyone!
