    Pros

    As an intern, they are very welcoming and willing to teach me a lot. They are taking the time to invest in me and teach me different aspects of the company. They don't just put interns to work, but they really try to get to know them and teach them about the company

    Cons

    I have no cons for now.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should continue to be welcoming to new employees/interns. Keep the friendly vibe that lets them feel comfortable
