I was free to shape the project however I wanted. Supervisor was generally open to all ideas, but did not provide feedback or thoughts about topics. I was able to shadow team members and learn about their roles.
Many team members were unwilling to help. Several people did not take me serious being an intern.
I continuously asked for feedback. When it was given , it was vague and unhelpful.
Management should not fear giving feedback. Deliverables should be clear. Project was completed, but during the last week supervisors wanted several papers and graphics (outside of final presentation). Had to rush to complete before end of summer.
Very serious environment. No one seems to really enjoy each other, even within teams
