3.3 of 5 stars

Full of busy work, but valuable experience in workplace and professional culture.
Seattle, WA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The best aspects were working with a team and getting exposure to the real world.


Downers

What I liked least was the lack of work when my manager was too busy to come up with something for me to do.


Advice to Potential Interns

It has potential to be a good internship. It is just unfortunate because the managers of various interns seem to have varied levels of preparedness.


Sample Interview Questions

Tell me a time, when you needed team work? Name a time when you overcame adversity.


Advice to Management

More training with the managers with interns to prepare them for the commitment that having an intern for three months is.


Would You Recommend

Yes

The Average Internship
Seattle, WA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The collegues, office environment, compensation and ability for work life balance


Downers

too easy. The work helped the department but it's not something you have to go to college to learn how to do.


Advice to Potential Interns

Be prepared to do intern work but the office is great


Would You Recommend

Yes

Interesting Project but a lack of Resources
Spokane, WA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

I liked the hours and the people. My project was meaningful.


Downers

I did not have a mentor and my manager was rarely available to help me


Advice to Potential Interns

They are a good employer, but if you are a person who likes to make changes/ improve your work place, it is difficult.


Sample Interview Questions

When does customer service mean to you?


Advice to Management

I think that having managers who have more time to help their employees would make the job much better. Managers are constantly in training rather than helping their employees with claims.

Overall Good Experience, But Be Prepared for Phases of Inactivity
Boston, MA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

1) Experiencing working in a business office setting,

2) Learning about Statutory Accounting Principles (which had not yet been learned at school),

3) Working for GAAP to make financial statements (ex. cash flow statement)

4) Participating in preparation of quarterly statements


Downers

1) Frequent periods of inactivity due to little work available

2) Although periods of inactivity are somewhat predictable, they are more frequent than periods of activity

3) Resources/team members not always available to learn more about SAP which could have been helpful in preparing quarterly statements


Advice to Potential Interns

Depending on under which manager you're working, you will be either under the Stat (SAP) side or the GAAP side of accounting. As an intern/co-op, be prepared to do work for both sides and keep an open mind for learning about Stat especially if you haven't learned about it in school. Also be prepared for periods of not having any work; maybe it's because I'm in a temporary position, but there are many times when I have absolutely no work.


Sample Interview Questions

1) What was a time when there were adverse factors and what did you do?


Advice to Management

Ideally, I would have liked some training on SAP; while preparing quarterly statements, I had a lot of questions and was usually stuck during preparation with little to no answers/progress because everyone else was busy with their own quarterly statements. I think basic training on SAP may have mitigated that roadblock.

3.4 of 5 stars

A great working environment with a lack of real work
Other (US) | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The management and employees were excellent to work with, the surrounding area had a lot of things to do, and the pay was very competitive for an internship.


Downers

There seemed to be a lot of confusion as to where I fit in and it showed in the amount of down time I had over the course of the internship. The work that I did have a chance to do was only occasionally challenging and mostly boring.


Advice to Potential Interns

Liberty Mutual is an excellent company to get your foot in the door. The work-life balance seems great (as long as you aren't in an on-call position) and individuals here can't say enough about the amount of mobility there is within Liberty. Hopefully my experience won't be yours.


Advice to Management

Put interns on meaningful assignments that are challenging and relevant.


Would You Recommend

No

3.3 of 5 stars

Work enjoyed more than expected, but ultimately disappointing experience.
Boston, MA | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

I enjoyed the work more than expected, and was able to make a contribution through valuable and real projects.


Downers

I did not like the data/analytics projects I was given, and the fact that I was misled to believe a full time offer was a given if my performance exceeded expectations.


Advice to Potential Interns

Insurance can actually be interesting, but the statistics about the full-time placement rate are incredibly misleading.


Advice to Management

Recognize the importance of Marketing and acknowledge the potential value in adding entry-level positions in this field.

Yes

Provide a program for new hires/interns that helps to acclimate them to their teams, OR make sure that documentation is consistent across platforms/teams.
