"It was an invaluable experience. I was offered a job, but I declined the offer. The company I interned with had a very strong reputation in the industry and, on paper, it seemed like a "dream job," but I learned that I didn't like the corporate culture. I went with a smaller company and I like it much better. I did get some good experience and good references out of the internship." (MBA female respondent)
