I'm a computer science and biochem major about to start a software development internship at a high-frequency trading firm. What are the classic mistakes you see inexperienced geeks make in a professional environment, especially a financial-sector/"business" place, and how can I avoid them? What can I do this summer to impress my supervisors and maybe get my foot in the door for a full-time job after graduation?

Note that I'm not asking for a crash course on finance. This company employs something like half the world's OCaml programmers, financially experienced or not, so I expect my ignorance there will be a familiar and tolerable experience for them.
