    I worked at Larsen & Toubro as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Each intern is allotted a Senior Design Engineer to work with who are really patient and skilled to share their experience and knowledge

    Cons

    Interns are allowed to work only on finished projects where the work is more of review than actual design.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Site visits, design experience for ongoing projects would be more insightful for interns.
