Nothing. This internship sucks in every aspect. The manager sucks, my desk sucks, the chair is uncomfortable, the cafeteria food is expensive and disgusting, the other interns are rude, the "projects" sucks, the recruiter doesn't really care about your experience but they just say they do because that's what they were hired to do, and the insurance company is boring as hell.
Everything. I hated everything about the internship. See above.
Advice to Potential Interns
Do not work here if you are looking for IT/Engineering positions. Liberty Mutual is slow and there is not enough work to pass around. This'll frustrate and bored you. The pay isn't even that great compared to other IT/Engineering positions. If Liberty Mutual is THE only offer you get, beg your heart out to get located in Seattle because the culture there is much more casual. As an IT/Engineering Intern, I'm sure you'll want to be where all the tech is and Seattle is probably the only Liberty location that'll offer that.
Advice to Management
Increase compensation for IT interns because if you don't, we're going to leave and you're going to leave all of the best talent. Fire all of the managers with high egos who only care about themselves and are so desperate to climb the company ladder. Plan more internship events/activities so that interns from across the BSUs can get to know each other. Fire the current chef manager or whatever you call him/her because they design terrible menus that are disgusting and makes me want to puke. Remove UX/UI/Product Design positions from the IT department because design is NOT engineering!!!!!!! Lower the cost of food in the cafeteria. Offer more free stuff because everybody wants free stuff. Offer better foot stools because the one you gave me is too short and wobbly. BE HONEST ABOUT THE INTERN PROGRAM. DON'T TRY TO OVER GLOAT IT AND MAKE IT SOUND AMAZING WHEN IT'S BARELY A "PROGRAM." IF YOU'RE GOING TO PERSUADE PEOPLE TO WORK FOR LIBERTY BECAUSE IT'S A FORTUNE 100 COMPANY, THEN DO STUFF THAT SHOWS IT'S WORTH WORKING AT!!! ALL THE RECRUITERS DO IS TALK TALK TALK, BUT THEY DON'T ACTUALLY WALK WALK WALK.
