  • Interns are given a lot of guidance and training by mentors and team members.
  • The projects that interns get to work on are both challenging and of importance to the company.
  • The remuneration provided is very high for an internship.
  • The integration is good and interns are regularly invited out with team members.

Cons

  • Some tasks may require background knowledge that not all interns will have.
  • Many feel the length of the internship is too short.
  • Internships can vary greatly depending on the department.
  • There can be a lot of training sessions at once early on that some may find overwhelming.
