The 20 Best Internships In America

June 10, 2013 at 02:21AM

Internship movieOwen Wilson and Vince Vaughn make Google's internship look pretty fun in "The Internship," which opened on Friday, and the movie is surprisingly accurate.

Google remains the best internship program in America, according to ratings by interns at career site Glassdoor.

In terms of pay, Microsoft interns earn the most, with an average monthly base pay of $5,869. JP Morgan is the highest-rated financial company on the list and made the biggest improvements, jumping nine spots, compared to last February.

To qualify companies have to be currently hiring interns and have at least 20 intern reviews posted on Glassdoor.

20. UBS Financial Services

3.7 out of 5 internship rating

2.4 out of 5 interview difficulty rating

$1,859 average monthly base pay

Pro: “Interning at UBS is a great opportunity to see how a top tier financial firm operates. If you work in the right WM group, you will learn a lot about the business.” – UBS Financial Services Intern (New York, NY)

Con: “The only downside is the size. It is difficult to network outside of your department or branch.” – UBS Financial Services Intern (New York, NY)

“The firm could improve on the training and responsibilities it provides its interns. I found that I was not being challenged to my full potential by the job responsibilities.” – UBS Financial Services Wealth Management Intern (Orlando, FL)

19. Scottrade

3.8 out of 5 internship rating

2.6 out of 5 interview difficulty rating

$1,805 average monthly base pay

Pro: “Great coworkers. Unlimited access to financial tools. Great learning opportunities. Excellent corporate culture and communications with the home office.” – Scottrade Intern (Edmond, OK)

“This is a great place to start as a first internship, because if you're willing to ask questions there is a lot to learn. The work environment is super chill if you have a bunch of chill coworkers.” – Scottrade Intern (location n/a)

Con: “Positions above branch manager are only in St. Louis and Denver, and are very competitive. Great for an internship but not necessary and ideal career path.” – Scottrade Intern (Boston, MA)

“Much of the information you learn is very firm specific. An intern will not be able to answer many of the questions due to regulations.” – Scottrade Intern (Edmond, OK)

18. Accenture

3.8 out of 5 internship rating

3.0 out of 5 interview difficulty rating

$3,509 average monthly base pay

Pro: Working in a team composed of people of different seniority lets you learn from each of them. Clients usually are famous companies from different industries.” – Accenture Intern (Milan, Italy)

“The people are very helpful and approachable, get to start work on "real jobs" immediately at the start of internship, give you responsibilities from day one.” – Accenture Consulting Intern (Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia)

Con: “One of the biggest cons would be a lack of official training program from the interns.” – Accenture Analyst Intern (Sydney, Australia)
