  • The firm ensures interns are well looked after and are fully integrated into their teams.
  • There are several social events and meals out organised for interns.
  • Interns are given varied, interesting work and the same level of responsibility as new joiners.


  • Hours can be unpredictable and are often long.
  • The internship can be fairly intense at times since interns are given real responsibility.
  • The training was useful but some felt that it was too brief.
