Vault best internship 2019

Grinnell Mutual recognized for top 10 internship program

Grinnell Mutual has been named one of Vault’s 2020 Best 100 Internship Programs in the country, ranking seventh overall with a score of 9.278.

Vault, a career research company based in New York, surveyed over 400 companies nationwide. More than 14,000 interns ranked their experience on a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being best).

Interns rated their companies based on six areas: work-life balance, compensation and benefits, interview process, career development, full-time employment prospects, and diversity.

Within the overall rankings, Grinnell Mutual also ranked fourth for full-time employment prospects, and ninth for compensation and benefits.

One co-op student from Grinnell Mutual wrote, “I never thought that I would be in the insurance industry but it’s a lot more than what people believe the stereotypical insurance company is. It's not just selling insurance; it involves a bunch of different departments to keep the company a well-oiled machine. It’s the hidden gem of the Midwest.”

In recent years Grinnell Mutual has invested in growing and improving its program for co-op students and interns with competitive wages, flexible work hours, the opportunity to earn school credit, access to senior leadership, and the chance to work across divisions on enterprise-wide projects.

“Grinnell Mutual is an exciting place to be!” said Jeff Vogts, vice president of Talent Development. “Not only have we been named as an Iowa Top Workplace for nine years running, we are now ranked nationally for our co-op and intern program. Our Vault ranking of seventh in the nation is a testament to Grinnell Mutual’s commitment to collaboration between leadership and employees at all levels, which gives our students a chance to do meaningful work on enterprise-wide projects.”
