Pros:

I interned out of the DC office and really enjoyed it. We got to see all parts of the business and accounts. I think there was about a dozen other interns and a lot of us loved living and working in DC. The highlight of the summer was when we split up into 2 teams and we pitched the senior management at Arnold DC an ad campaign for a current client. Really enjoyed it.

Cons:

This is unpaid and because of legal/client billing, there are some times where there is not a ton of work to do.

Advice for other students:

Looks great on the resume and DC is a blast. I know it's unpaid, but Arnold is a well known employer brand.
