For the next six weeks I'll be interning for Grünenthal, a German pharmaceutical company (they have gained some infame in the late 1950s due to the Contergan (Thalidomid) affair which left many newly born babies with crippled limbs). I'll be working in their communication department which is the place to be if one wants to learn quickly how companies of that size function.
The only drawback is that my work wont involve a lot of computers. Other than that, it's splendid. There are four nice female colleagues and one other chap who's currently on holidays. What I have to get used to, though, is the working hours: It's from 8.30 in the morning to around 6 in the evening, plus two hours of public transport for me. Incidentally, I received quite a few more mails this week than usual concerning my CPAN modules which I now have to leave pending till the weekends.
