Duration of the internship: February 2014
How big was the office? Team strength? Office has strength of around 200 employees (approx. may be more or less)
AMSS have their own building of 2 floors so office is quite big.
Application procedure: Applied on my own. I sent CV with cover letter to Deepa Ma’am and she sent me a questioner, on that questioner basis I got an internship.
Duration in weeks. No. of days/week. Timings: In starting 2 weeks but got extension of 1 week so it becomes 3 weeks internship. Monday – Friday, 9.30- 6.00 but this timing are on paper only.
I usually left by 8.00-8.30. Some of the interns also came on Saturdays too but I am the lucky one who is not called on Saturdays or Sundays.
Accommodation: I am from Delhi only so accommodation is not a problem for me. But there are number of PGs for both boys and girls in Sarita Vihar and it hardly takes 10-15 min to reach office from there.
First impression. First day, formalities etc: As you are going to AMSS for internship you must have imagine something about the office and your imagination related to office will be prove correct.
On first day, Deepa ma’am has given us a sheet in which we have to mention all our particulars and area of interest and according to that we were provided our teams. You can work with other teams also if you don’t have any work from your team.
Main tasks (in detail): I worked in corporate team so main task is related to Companies Act, 2013 and other includes due diligence, proof reading etc. Mainly it is related to research work on various topics.
Work environment, people: Employees and work culture at Amarchand, Delhi is very good. I don’t have words to say how good the employees are? They are so humble, so supportive so down to earth that you don’t feel that you are working as an intern in such a big firm.
This is not only my opinion but other interns too. They treat you like you are also a main part of an organization.
Best things? Every single moment at Amarchand is awesome for me. Work allotted to me Work culture; employees etc. all are good for me. I am feeling that is past 3 weeks all my stars are in good mood.
Bad things? Certificate will be given through post so those who need to show them in colleges immediately have a big problem.
What did you do to chill? Free coffee and tea for all and you can also buy anything from pantry. All interns sit together so we chill out at our workstations, by doing chit chat. As far as I know there is no place to hang out near office.
Stipend/ month : No information related to this.
Biggest lessons: One should be Intellectual, hardworking and dedicated.
