    Pros

    Great place to intern, overall. Everyone treats you well, is really nice and extremely smart. You're encouraged to network and set up informational interviews. You also get real experience that carries a lot of weight and prestige when you go on future interviews with other companies.

    Also, interns entered raffles to get tickets to see the Daily Show or the Colbert Report (Stewart and Colbert were still on when I was there).

    Cons

    Pay is a little low for working in the city, but is pretty standard for the industry.
