Final Thoughts


Would you recommend this internship to a friend?

Yes.

Are you returning?

Not sure.

Summary


It is very fun. The internship help other people in different field such as marketing, legal assistance and HR management. The company does not treat you like an intern, but they treat you like a member of the company which mean that you feel very valuable. Sometimes, you must figure things out on your own, but they are always happy to help you. In addition to this, the company is growing up slowly. They do not the best system in technology or organization, but they are always making changes and progress. I like how they have a team that focuses on taking care of the company's member. For example, if you had a mental breakdown or you feel uncomfortable they reach out to you and they will listen to you. In other words, they have their own therapists and counselors for their members and it is confidential.
