I interned at Financial Times during my university summer break. The management are kind and helpful and give you interesting jobs. Unlike most internships, they seem to take a real interest in you and what you want from your experience.

Great place to work because the people are great and there is a fantastic work social balance. However the pay can be poor and the bonuses also. Overall positive but don't expect to be a rich person anytime soon!
