      Pros

      Fully trusted and given reposnibility. Interesting and challenging tasks. I leaned a lot. Easy hours. Fun environment. Perfect office location in Stockholm.

      Cons

      Spotify is not able to give you a full-time offer right after the internship. Depends on availability of positions when you are finishing school. Most of the office is on vacation during July.
