SPN Companies

Financial Analyst Intern

June - August 2021 • Philadelphia, PA

What I liked

SPN Companies is a well-managed corporation that gives its customers high-quality products and services while helping its employees thrive in a professional setting. I enjoyed my time working in this company, helping it achieve its goal of improving the lives of disabled or old people. This is a great place to work at.

Working remotely was a bit weird, but a good experience nonetheless.

Advice

If you want to experience the daily operations of a startup company or develop an entrepreneurial mindset, then SPN Companies is a great place to work at.

Internship Program Intern

July - August 2020 • Philadelphia, PA

What I liked

I liked how open and honest the employees were. The position I held was a new position that has not been created before. However, the employees helped me through the whole process. The company has a family environment and included me in the growth of their company. Their mission and value is heartwarming and I have learned a lot in a short amount of time.

What I wish was different

I think since the position is very new, there wasn't a solid task list or playbook to base off of.

Advice

One advice I would like to share is that SPN is a company that you could learn a lot from. I think it gives you that first look into what is needed to operate a business and will get your feet wet into the field.

Business Development Intern

January - April 2021 • Philadelphia, PA

What I liked

I was an intern here four months while simultaneously enrolled in college courses. SPN Construction has great staff who are genuinely concerned about teaching you skills for your career. My boss completely understood that I had schoolwork to do that was a priority sometimes, and gave me some time off accordingly. I Always felt like I had people do go to if I needed help, but at the same time I was pushed into new uncomfortable situations to learn new skills. Also, If you do an internship here, expect to have your ideas taken seriously. There are bi-weekly growth strategy meetings were you can pitch your own ideas and give input on the ideas of other people at the company. If you've got something to say, everyone is all ears. Even the president, Saverio (who is a GREAT guy) is eager to hear the intern's input on things. Overall a great place to learn some new skills for college graduates.

Marketing Strategist

February 2021 • Philadelphia, PA

What I liked

I really liked how informative and patient everyone is, and I like being able to go to anyone if I have questions or to pitch ideas. You are able to learn a lot and gain a lot of experience with them. I have really gotten a hands on experience and so far l have been learning a lot. They are extremely flexible with school and any outside activities and they communicate very well with everyone. The environment is super friendly and open. Everyone collaborates together for projects and it involves a lot of teamwork.

What I wish was different

I wish that things weren't online, but overall that hasn't stopped me from learning or being able to work in projects

Advice

Don't be afraid to reach out and ask any type of questions! I was a little nervous at first especially because this is my first internship, but they have been so welcoming and encouraging.

What I liked

Flexible working environment. The company provided great opportunities to learn about business, and was able to gain experience/understanding in topics outside of assigned role for the internship.

What I wish was different

Advice

Take your responsibilities, and roll with them. Although you are asked to produce certain deliverables, the structure of the internship and positions within it, provide great learning opportunities, and I felt as though I was able to gain a lot of applicable information from this internship, that I will be able to utilize for my major.
