    Pros

    It varies, but I interns are overall pretty free to develop as they see fit.
    Flexible hours.
    A few fun activities throughout the semester.

    Cons

    Progress can be slow and people in the company often don't email back if you have questions.
    Lots of paperwork to do simple things.
    Lots of restrictions on what we're allowed to do, such as download software on the provided machines.
    Not a ton of feedback, as projects leads often don't have a programing background and you may only be around fellow interns who know as much as you.

  10. Fantastic. Superb people, great learning experience.

    Pros

    You get to work with a bunch of interns that are your age and get pretty interesting work compared to a lot of "intern work" at big companies

    Cons

    The people are very friendly but seem to be very settled in their careers and lack motivation to do more.

    Advice to Management

    Keep professionals motivated by encouraging growth. Employees should want to find new opportunities and not just settle in where they are. Great family culture, but lack of fit when you have a very professional mindset.
