Great Place for a first internship
Summer Analyst (Former Employee) – New York, NY; Jersey City, NJ – June 19, 2019
I was an intern for ITEC, in a class of about 90 interns. However, about 8 of us were with ITEC. The first week was training, which consisted of an overview of what the bank does and certain aspects of banking. I learned a lot of banking that I didn't in school but, I felt that there should have been a specific training for ITEC interns as our work may or may not involve that.
I found out at the end of the last week I would be working in Jersey City but, I did spend some days in NYC based on the events they prepared for us. The pay was great, however, a majority of the time there I didn't have much to do. My team was very busy with their own tasks and I didn't get that many projects. Every single employee I met, no matter the level, was very kind, welcoming, helpful, and willing to answer any of my questions. My boss was also amazing.
The program had free lunches every Friday where someone in the company would talk about their experience in the company and provide background for their department. We also had a bowling night and a soulcycle class. It was a great place to work, especially since it was my first.
I did feel that there was some confusion when it came to certain events. In the beginning, I didn't know where I would be working or my manager until later on in the week. However, HR did have to take care of all 90 interns.
I can't speak for the rest of the interns but, for ITEC, full time offers were given to half of the interns. I was not one of them and I was upset but, it was truly a wonderful experience. I truly enjoyed working there!
great pay, great company culture, wonderful people
didn't have much to do, confusion with HR
