      Pros

      - Some of the best people I've ever worked with - People at analyst/ manager level are hard working and very rarely do you need to pick up the slack - Fun company events - Free beer :)

      Cons

      - Senior leadership didn't seem in touch with the level of work needed for certain tasks which caused additional stress and ridiculous deadlines - Some teams were extremely cliquey - Certain management were out right rude and disrespectful (but I hear they have moved on now so hopefully this is resolved).

      Pros

      As an intern, this was the best space to grow and to learn, while still earning money. I worked on real-life projects and my managers were there to guide me all through it.

      Cons

      It might take time for the team to feel comfortable with the intern, but that's part of it.
