    Pros

    Everyone in my department was friendly and helpful and wanted to help me learn. They had a cafe and a cafeteria that the company subsidizes so everything was about half price ($2 for an entree and sides) of what you would get it for if you eat out.

    Cons

    Low intern pay for the amount of work done. Volatile company, has gone through multiple rounds of lay offs.
