I'm going to start an internship with a company that is currently not well-liked in some parts of the world. I am kinda cash-straped, and not doing this internship would put me in a worse financial situation. Also, this is a very cool research position - I am very lucky to get this sort of job. Also, I didn't get any other satisfying position for this year (one internship was cancelled).
Could having this company on my CV be a significant burden when applying to some jobs in the future? Will I be disqualified based only on that?
What repercussions do I expect if I leave it off my resume in the future?
If I search for jobs and this topic is brought up on an interview by a hostile interviewer, what could I do to mitigate the damage?
Disclaimer: I have zero ethical qualms regarding working for this company. I will be doing research that has nothing to do with the company's products, in a team consisting of good and honorable people from all over the world.
But, maybe some prospective employers will think bad of me for it.
EDIT: I already decided I want the internship. The question was just about what should I expect in the future, in case I don't continue my career with them.
