    Pros

    Everyone is very personable: there are numerous opportunities to shadow in different departments and learn about all the moving parts of a business. They really encourage everyone to take ownership of their projects.

    Cons

    This is not necessarily a con but more of a suggestion for you to get the most out of your experience: ask questions and ask for different opportunities. They want you to learn so tell them what you're interested in.

    Advice to Management

    As an intern, there's not too much advice I could give! Management was very open with employees and tried to create a collaborative, entrepreneurial environment.

    Pros

    Really in-depth program where you get to learn about every department of the company, office culture is very young and there is a lot of collaboration between teams, all higher-ups are very welcoming and approachable (the ceo sits in a cubicle just like the rest of us and is always available to schedule meetings with or grab coffee with)

    Cons

    no compensation for interns, there is a lot of room for independence which can be both a pro and a con -- depends on your levels of independence

    Pros

    Strong colleagues, friendly atmosphere, and lots of scope for individual contribution.

    One-team attitude within tech, easy to find someone who's worked with whatever random technology you think might be the right tool.

    Cons

    More stable/resources to do interesting stuff but not growing as quickly as in the past...

    Pros

    Challenging, fast paced, great people, culture, food, chance to work with different technologies and freedom to grow.

    Cons

    Not much room to advance, but definitely a great opportunity to get the experience needed to evolve your career. As the company grows this "con" will diminish.

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for everything! I would not be where I am now without the guidance and advice from my manager. Also the senior management lead by example and you feel they are on your side.
