It's rare to come work for a team that is so busy yet provides such support and flexibility. As an intern, I have the opportunity to learn a lot and provide real value to the team while also taking point on projects and leveraging and improving existing skills. These factors enable me to get the most out of my internship, creating an immeasurable amount of value as I move forward in my career. The data teams seek to improve processes and learn as much as I do, and even though I'm an intern, I'm not treated as "just the intern" -- it truly feels like my feedback, ideas, questions, and skills are just as valued as the rest of the team.
