Did a summer internship at a big shiny company
Didn't care for the first project they offered, but a disgusting amount of pressure was placed on me to go there
Realised that any company that spends about half its budget aggressively advertising what a wonderful place it is to work at is probably a really shitty place to work at
Also realised that big shiny companies are generally in love with themselves
Also they're not into paying up on time, like, at all.
As in I'm still waiting to receive money for last day.
Which was in October.
Basically this but without the piles of money:
Overall disappointing experience, 3/10 with points awarded for excellent food and a (much too late) attempt to make things interesting after we complained, would not recommend.
edit 7/1/2014. Still no money
Someone calls from the company:
"Hello, would you like to hear about our student employment programs for 2014?"
"No, but I'd love to hear about my employment program in 2013"
