Former Intern - Software Developer Intern

Pros

Can only speak about my team in particular, - caring, friendly manager who really cared about all of the interns on the team and pushed them to excel - worked with lots of different tech due to... existing legacy code and newer code with newer technologies - lots of support from senior members, fellow interns, managers

Cons

for my team, we had a lot of interns and only a few senior developers, so sometimes the senior members would be busy working on higher priority issues and the interns would have to try to ask each... other when stuck

Former Employee - Senior Talent Acquisition Partner

Pros

Great team. Great manager. Challenging roles to recruit for depending on which business unit you support.

Cons

It is a large corporation - therefore a lot of red tape for approvals.
