The best aspects of the internship were being able to work closely with such smart senior management, meeting and working with bright interns from across the country, and working on projects that have a real impact on the firm were my major highlights.
The only con I can think of, which has less to do with the internship itself, was living in Salt Lake City. Other than that, no complaints.
Advice to Potential Interns
Work harder than the person next to you. Like it or not, you are being compared to the other interns. Don't give anyone the opportunity to question your work ethic. Don't just ask questions, ask smart questions. Be thorough. Think before you speak.
