The best aspects of the internship were:
-the real work experience and business need you're able to gain and contribute to
-the networking opportunities
-the overall culture of the company
- the technology
-the global ties the company has
-the many locations and opportunities for travel
Commuting to Alexandria, V.A everyday.
I would have preferred to have a client within the actual city of Washington, D.C so that I would have been able to utilize the metro.

Advice to Management
In terms of internships and interns, I believe that all managers should look into having a rotation program implemented within their specific team or project to allow interns to rotate amongst the different teams/projects during their internship duration to learn as much as possible.
