Pros

  • There are a lot of training options on offer.
  • A wide range of sport and social activities are provided to help employees socialise.
  • Interns are given the same level of responsibility as other employees.

Cons

  • Remuneration on offer is reasonable but may not go very far in high-cost areas.
  • Interns do not have as much say in where they are assigned as they would like.
  • The company is so large that it can be difficult to see the impact your work will have.
