    Software Engineer Intern

    Software Engineer Intern (Current Employee)
    Ottawa, ON (Canada)

    ProsPay was really high compared to what I'm supposed to get for being so junior. Nice office, really cool building, and really great people. A flexible schedule, yoga lessons, and gym. The company is really large and you feel like you belong.

    ConsNo catered food and other things you can expect from a place like Google I guess. Also lots of bureaucratic tape I find. I didn't really get affected by that too much but I know my co-workers did.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLess tape. More food.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Software Engineer Inter

    Software Engineer Intern (Current Employee)
    Austin, TX

    ProsTech giant with massive resources and really talented people. You work on products that are touched by millions in mission critical areas. For such a big company, it feels very nimble. You can easily reach any employee worldwide through Sametime. It feels like a tight-knit environment, even thought you are 1 or hundreds of thousands. Every manager I have dealt with is awesome. Uber professionalism throughout.

    ConsIt is a big company. It takes weeks to do some things that would be done in hours in a startup. I wish product development was more streamlined. That similar products were merged or shut down. And that products would not be saddled with every single possible feature.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEvery single manager I have dealt with is awesome. So keep picking good people.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
