Bank of America GWIM Internship

So I have been doing a lot of research in the Investment Management/Asset Management industry and came across BAML's GWIM division, but have not found much info on it online, specifically their alternative investment division within GWIM. Anyone have any info on culture, pay, exit opportunities, work etc? PWM/GWM or AM?

I Specifically found this posting, which doe not provide a lot of answers though. I am interested the most in the Alternative Investments, Is this a PWM internship? PB? AM? does not seem very clear.
