    I worked at TD Ameritrade as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    If you are working in Business Intelligence or Strategy, Planning & Analytics, you will be thrown right into the mix with the whole business unit. By the end of your summer, you will have learned a working proficiency in some of the most important data analytics softwares, which are extremely valuable to throw on your resume as a Senior in college.

    Cons

    There are generally more things that need to be done than actual employees to get the jobs done. Thus, you will find yourself dabbling in different business functions and doing other people's work many times.
