Exceeded my expectations for a summer internship. I could not have asked for a better experience.


Uppers

The program director did an excellent job of matching my skills to the right intern role within finance. I was able to jump right in and immediately contribute and make an impact within the organization. At the same time, I was learning a lot and developing as a person. My assignments were challenging but I was given room to be creative and come up with new ideas and ways of doing things. I left at the end of the summer feeling very proud at what I had accomplished. Some of the models I developed will be adapted and used even after I am gone. It is an incredible feeling to know that I made an impact at such a well known and innovative company.


Downers

Relocation expenses and housing were not covered as part of this internship.


Advice to Potential Interns

This internship is not just looking for good financial analysts but for the future leaders of AT&T. So, it is not enough to just be good at the analytical side of the job. Make sure you highlight your leadership skills during the interview process. Once you begin your internship, go out of your way to network and be outgoing. Be confident and comfortable stating your ideas and opinions as well as presenting your findings.


Advice to Management

In the current company culture, a lot of people work through lunch and eat at their desks. Doing this everyday prevents people from networking and developing relationships. I would suggest sponoring some networking lunches to get people into the habit of eating lunch with their co-workers.

Challenging corporate finance experience in a highly competitive industry


Uppers

Exciting/challenging work, opportunities to network, well paid, flexible hours


Downers

No relocation assistance, decisions sometimes took a long time to be implemented due to company's large size


Advice to Potential Interns

Be open minded about the assignment you are given. The company is very large and the products are very diverse. Be sure to network and learn the business no matter what your role is.


Advice to Management

Please offer relocation assistance to those coming to the internship from far away and need to find short term living arrangements. It is very expensive to try to do that on your own.

Learned a lot about the industry, met some amazing people, but I wish the work was more challengin


Uppers

Work/Life Balance People Exposure


Downers

Work wasn't complex Their can be a lot of downtime in between projects Could be a bit more structured with actual summer projects and goals to accomplish I wish they would pay for a moving bonus.


Advice to Potential Interns

I think this is a good place to get yoru feet wet in the telecom and tech industries. People are nice and you learn a lot about the inner workings of the company and the drivers of the industry.


Advice to Management

I think there should be more structure and that FLP leadership should work with the intern managers to develop an actionable plan of work for interns to work on during the sumemr and not just use them for ad-hoc projects. We hire some really intelligent people we should use them more efficently.
