First day formalities, infrastructure, first impression
I was a bit anxious when I entered but it all went away subsequently, basic formalities were executed by the H.R. and I was given a simple task related to corporate compliances.
I was working in the area of corporate compliances and thereby most work was delegated by the Company Secretary, definitely honed my skills and widened my knowledge base pertaining to corporate laws.
I was also given the task to research and analyse the GST bill and prepare a presentation.
The work environment is extremely positive, associates make you feel home. There is no undue pressure or unreasonable timings. We all had lunch together, a rare culture to include interns as well was comforting. My immediate reporting was to an associate who was very helpful, we would work on presentations together.
All offices provide Lunch except Fox Pune and it is 6 days working.
Accommodation, commuting to the office
I study in Symbiosis Law School, Pune and thereby stayed in the hostel. Koregaon Park is near to Viman Nagar and so took a cab/auto.
Anything else, what you did to chill out, lessons learnt etc
Maintaining a good rapport and engaging in healthy conversations (non-law) with associates/H.R. were my chill-out sessions, that way I could gather various perspectives on different issues and agendas apart from the legal arena.
