What I wish was different
The exec's talked a big talk about components of the internship program at the beginning of the summer, but ultimately a lot of the programming that they said would take place fell through the cracks. I just wish none of it was held in front of us because it would have been less of a let down later on. Also, since This Bar works interns like full-time employees, a bit more pay would have been nice. LA is EXPENSIVE, and this should be a consideration to the organization if they want to retain the best talent. Lastly, This Bar is a super lean organization (and purposefully so), but this means everyone has a lot of work to do. This increases turnover and even leaves interns feeling a bit burnt out! Expect a lot of work if you have a high capacity.
