April - September 2017 • Buckhead, GA

What I liked

The large amounts of cash you were allowed to work with.

What I wish was different

I wish I had been allowed to sit and work, and that I did not have to work Saturdays.

Do not work in the bank itself, because banking is still considered retail.

Global Technology Summer Analyst

June - August 2018 • Pennington, NJ

What I liked

I loved that I got to work on a technical project that challenged me and allowed me to learn. I got hands on experience with multiple languages and technologies that I learned on the job. My co-workers were really kind and often took the time out of their busy day to answer my questions.

What I wish was different

This is specific to my particular situation, but I would have liked to experience working on a project in a team setting. For my project, I was mostly working by myself and took help from others when needed.

Advice

This was my first internship experience as well as my first technical role, so I was very overwhelmed in the beginning. I would advise any first-timers to give it time. I would say it took me about a month to feel completely comfortable in the work I was doing.

What I liked

My team was very supportive and helpful.

What I wish was different

The intern program lacked any out of or in work activities. I would prefer a job that has more social opportunities.

Advice

The internship is what you make of it, and you should like business.

Corporate Banking Intern

June - August 2018 • New York City, NY

What I liked

Great internship- lots of access to people throughout the Bank. I learned a lot and couldn’t have been happier with the experience.

What I wish was different

Always try and get ahead so you can free yourself up to help others. I think some of my best moments were when I was able to pick up on a project when no one else had the time to do so.

Wealth Management Summer Analyst

June - August 2018 • Garden City, NY

What I liked

The learning curriculum and summer-long collaborative project from corporate, ability to network, and work-life balance.

What I wish was different

Sometimes a lot of downtime, your experience can/may depend on what team you're placed on in the office.

Advice

It is what you make it. They give you a good platform, but it's up to you to make the most of your experience - you will get out of it what you put into it.

Global Banking & Markets Analyst Intern

May - August 2018 • New York City, NY

What I liked

The culture was one of bringing each other up and always learning. They also have great diversity initiatives that allowed all of the company to grow and learn from each other.

What I wish was different

I think that the work-life balance could have been communicated better. We ended up working more hours than we thought we would from the letter or from other employees thoughts.

Advice

Show your intention to learn from your managers and direct employees and then make sure you understand what you were told. Also, continue asking questions so you are constantly learning. Finally, try to do extra projects on the side to prove you are willing to go an extra mile for the team.

Intern

June - August 2018 • Charlotte, NC

What I liked

The culture of the bank compared to others was very welcoming.

What I wish was different

The program I was working in had a lot of routine. I was in the Financial Management Analyst Program, the bank's premier corporate finance program and one of its most respected internships. The program was rewarding but just a little routine for my personal liking.

Advice

Network as much as you can, as you move through the program you'll find out more and more what things you like. Find people in the bank who are doing those things because they are out there and they can help you!

Analyst

June - August 2018 • San Francisco, CA

What I liked

The people and company culture were amazing. The work was interesting, and my coworkers were very helpful and interested in sharing all of the opportunities that exist at such a large bank.

What I wish was different

I would have liked to understand a little better what the work was going to be going into the summer, because I felt unprepared at points during the beginning.

Advice

Meet as many people as you can inside the office and at social gatherings because part of understanding if you want to work somewhere is not just enjoying the work but enjoying the people who you'll be spending 9+ hours a day with.

Global Compliance Risk Intern

June - August 2018 • New York City, NY

What I liked

What I wish was different

Advice

Do not stress too much if you are not completely familiar with the field before you start. A lot of the program is designed to introduce you to the industry as well as the bank's role within it. Just come in with an open mind ready to absorb.

Wholesale Credit Summer Analyst

June - August 2018 • Chicago, IL

What I liked

Loved the people, the programming, the dedication to my education, and the responsibilities I had been given.

More structured, but it's hard to accomplish because their deal flow comes in waves.

Advice

Don't be afraid to ask questions

Investment Banking Analyst Intern

June - August 2018 • New York City, NY

What I liked

The people were awesome - very friendly and willing to help you out. There were great events for the interns ("Speaker Series" talks from the CEO, COO, etc, box seats at Yankees games, and more). Work was fast-paced and I learned a TON in a very short period of time.

What I wish was different

The hours were very long, but that comes with the territory of investment banking. There is technically a 75-hour/week cap for the interns, but this is not enforced very well.

Advice

This was a sophomore internship program at a company that does not recruit directly from Williams, so I would recommend reaching out to Williams alums very early if you're thinking of applying. I used LinkedIn to find alums and then the alumni database to find their email addresses. Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions!
