Winter Interns see what a real busy season looks like while getting exposed with lots of client interaction
Pros: free lunches, ability to take responsibility into your own hands
Cons: quiet work areas, high stress, and lots of desk work.
During my internship my typical day would be to show up at the client site and complete any substantive testing that needed to be done. They depended on me to take responsibility for my work. I learned a lot about how to effectively communicate with the client.
