Accommodation: how, where, how was it?
Delhi can be a suitable option for people who wants to stay in Delhi and use metro as a transportation. Paying Guest is the best option, as I was staying in Noida itself in Sector 52, from there auto-rickshaw took 15 mins to the office which is located in Noida sector-9.
First impression. First day, formalities etc.
First impression was good, big office with cafeteria and first day formality was like writing in my name in the register of interns or internship register of that particular office, I was made aware of the office timings particularly and then further I was guided to their library where all the interns were suppose to sit and wait for the work.
I was introduced to my Co-interns and was given a chance to make myself feel comfortable before I was given any work.
Interns were given drafting related task to do and Associates assign the task according to availability of work and in particular year you are studying.
The year you’re in matters a lot. So anybody who is from first year will sit idle end up doing nothing in his whole internship. The tasks were well mostly like researching and drafting for 4th and 5th years students.
Work environment, people
The working environment is very eco-friendly out there.
Nobody will try disturbing you, everybody is busy in his or her own life, they like keeping it full professional and the interns will work with the associates allotted to them and if any associate assigned to an intern has no work for him , they can chit-chat too.
People there are very relaxed and try making you feel more comfortable.
Friendly Associates except few.
I found some really amazing associates here whom I worked with, whenever I found myself stuck in a problem, my associates were there to help me out. some of them helped me every time I needed them, 24*7,they were good enough to teach me things I don’t know rather than getting pissed on me.
Not enough work, basically you have to ask for the work as associate wouldn’t come and hand over the work.
There was so much chaos in the office that you can’t imagine an associate coming to you and giving you work every time, once you’re done with your work you have to rush to the associate to get the new work otherwise you’ll not get work.
What did you do to chill? Co-interns, colleagues
Chit-Chat with co-interns and have tea or snacks in cafeteria and Fox Mandal itself was so chilled.
Anything else you’d like to tell; Biggest lessons :
For me it was just a time pass as there was no proper work, but I found some really good associates who I can look upto.
