Hi friends, I'm trying to decide between interning atHamilton (Summer Games) or Walmart Corporate (Accounting ) this summer. My background is in economics, so I'm pretty flexible. My past internships are in government/policy. I'm interested in Walmart vs. stuff going forward, which is why I applied to Walmart (did not otherwise).
BAH Pros: grad school sponsorship, data analytics/computer engineering training, mentorship, big name in public sector consulting
BAH Cons: a lot of new hires in general and I want to be able to create my own identity, which shouldn't be a problem but could be; I could end up 'on the bench' and wait to be assigned to a project for up to a few months
Walmart Pros: full time rotation opportunities in Silicon Valley/international, Fortune 1, out of my comfort zone, a lot of change is happening
Walmart Cons: total culture shift (personally), less flexibility due to structured rotation program (if I get a full-time offer)
Work-life balance and compensation about the same at both. Honestly, I'm pretty flexible about moving to Arkansas.
Does corporate finance have slow upward mobility? Even through a finance/accounting rotation? Which one has more prestige?
