    Pros

    I love this place because it opens my mind spectrum to think of better ways to make what they already do very well better.

    Cons

    some employees needs to understand that the success of a company is by team effort and not department by department.

    Advice to Management

    management should have a risk assessor and venture in ideas that will make productivity and quality better.

    Pros

    Releveant, interesting, and diverse work and projects Attentive, responsive, inclusive, and accommodating management True fosters of innovation and independence in the workplace Excellent and efficient hiring process Relatively high pay rate compared to previous internships

    Cons

    My internship would not be for someone who cannot manage multiple projects and stay on-task To which much is given, much is expected Must be self-sufficient and dependable, the full-time employees are busy people and will not go out of their way to give you projects; you must seek them yourself

    Advice to Management

    Hire me as a full-time market analyst now that I have graduated

    Pros

    Such a wondeful company to work for. As an intern, I have gained so much experience from working with my co-parts. Everyone is very friendly and it is just an all around great work environment.

    Cons

    Not enough open HR positions. Would have been an ideal situation to accept a ful time position right after I completed my internship.

    Pros

    Great people, great atmosphere, and great pay for the work.

    Cons

    Sometimes a little favorable of some people, coming from the office though.

    Advice to Management

    Let's be a little more lenient with points, especially when it is due to weather and out of someone's hands. You're losing a lot of great workers due to this.

    Pros

    Some of the best reasons to work here are the people and the environment. I was able to work on multiple projects at once that could be a day to day basis or the whole term.They are always willing to teach and it feels like a small family business. No one is trying to oust you out of your job and management is always willing to give you more responsibility if you ask for it. Plus management is always involved and not on the sidelines like some other major corporations.

    Cons

    Some groups have bad cultures and almost always busy, where things needed to get done yesterday. It feels like some of the meetings don't need to happen as they take up to 50% of some peoples' days.

    Advice to Management

    Collaborate on getting more people together for meetings so multiple ones don't need to happen on different days to make sure everything is being caught up on.

    Pros

    Good work environment, helpful people. HR team is great. No time-off. Company values are great. Got to learn a lot.

    Cons

    Leadership is the only one. Other than that there are no cons to this company. This company first hires via contract.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing.
