Renaissance Strategic Advisors

Summer Analyst

May - August 2018 • Washington, DC

What I liked

Fascinating work, learning something new every day, strong intern training program, having actual responsibility as an intern, flat hierarchy, fun office culture, and working for clients at the forefront of global security and technological innovation.

What I wish was different

Work-life-balance could be difficult at times, some interns had significantly more work than others, and the atmosphere could get competitive.

Advice

Engage as much as possible with the projects you are on - don't take for granted the opportunity to immerse yourself with game-changing technologies and with industry trends that will shape the future of global security.

What I liked

The structure of the internship of working with two project managers for five weeks each was great. It enabled me to see a much wider variety of the work that Renaissance does and meet and work with more people at the firm.

Summer Analyst

May - August 2017 • Arlington County, VA

What I liked

I learned a lot about the financial consulting side of the defense and aerospace field, and was challenged on a daily basis.

What I wish was different

I wish there had been somewhat more explanations of how to complete the independent project, and that there was less emphasis placed on getting hired.

Advice

Work hard, don't be afraid to look like an idiot, and be sure you are learning as much as possible. You applied to learn, not to stress out all summer.
