    Pros

    The atmosphere that the corporation provide is marvelous, from the first visit to do the interview and then the facilities and benefits you get is great. The people were friendly and enjoying their work which makes you want to go everyday to work. Each individual is appreciated and ideas are welcomed. To have your internship at their head office is a good experience. Great place to work.

    Cons

    I did not had any bad experience during my internship. Only it was a short one and I hoped to join the team for a longer one.
