Feedback to management about the internship/co-op program: 

Every person I worked with gave me feedback. And not just "hey, keep up the good work," but actual changes to help me become a better writer. Sometimes the work is really hard and it feels like too many questions are being asked, but no one is ever mad that an intern asks a question - they readily welcome it.

Like family
