The team that I work with. The people are really great. They are welcoming, funny, and laid back. I feel comfortable talking to each of them to ask questions about my work, or about the company, or even to just chat and get to know them better.
It took a few weeks before I got work that seemed valuable to them and to me. Everyone is pretty busy so sometimes it can be hard to get a chance to talk to those who have been here longer because they are often in calls or working on assignments. I think the relocation money should be more considering the cost of living in Boston is high.
Advice to Potential Interns
I think it really depends on what you want to do. I was technically put into IT, but I personally feel that the type of work I want to do and study in school isn't really IT, but I also understand why I was placed in IT as their team is newer and works very closely with developers. If you are not happy with the work or other aspects, the recruiters and employers are open to hear your opinions. You have to be willing to communicate with them about the problems. Liberty Mutual is really big, so I do think it can be a hit or miss with getting a good team/manager. They are pretty flexible with working times though, but again, it depends on your manager.
Advice to Management
I wish they had a stronger intern program. I would have liked more opportunities to get together with my fellow interns both socially and through learning experiences/events. I know some groups do lunch and learns and I heard a past intern had a bowling event at a different office, so events like these would have been great.
More relocation allowance.
More guidance/mentorship in the internship.
