Market Research Intern, Strategy Studio & Strategic Growth
June - August 2019 • Los Angeles, CA
What I liked
I loved how interns were treated so well by everyone in the company, including the CEO & COO. We received extensive training during our first week and were able to participate in actual projects, working with analysts to complete deliverables. Moreover, NRG let us execute our own independent research and present it to all the employees, which was a great experience.
What I wish was different
During our training, it would have been nice to see more of the work that each departments do since they are all very different.
Be proactive to constantly ask for feedback and to be staffed on projects. Don't expect your supervisors to know what you want without asking for it. Also if you make a promise to finish something by a certain time, keep your word.
