Work environment, people

What really struck me about Vaish Associates was the personal touch where everybody was very approachable. Whenever I was given work I was always explained the entire background and what exactly was expected out of me.

Added to that, some of the associates even took the pains to explain to me how to go about doing the assignment. I was always asked for my view on matters and this definitely kept me on my toes.

Basically, if you demonstrate a certain level of serious dedication and motivation then the learning potential at Vaish Associates is immense.

The best things AND the bad things

The best part about the internship at Vaish Associates, Mumbai was that I got to work directly with the Partners and seniors. Their patience and understanding is undoubtedly the reason why I count this as one of internships where

I’ve learnt the most. I got to do excellent work on diverse corporate and real-estate laws. I also attended a client meeting and tele-conferences.

There wasn’t a single day where I did any frivolous work or had to sit idle.

Vaish Associates, Mumbai makes it a point to come together to celebrate birthday of every team member with a lavish lunch, cake, etc.

The problems, if any, were that the road from the station to the office was dug up on account of the monorail construction making navigation difficult.
