    Former Employee - Business Development Intern in Champaign, IL

    I worked at Cazoodle as an intern

    Pros

    This job was great because you were given a lot of responsibility from the get go. I was interacting with clients almost immediately. Very much a baptism of fire, but it was a great learning experience. One definitely has the opportunity to make a very real impact on a company and play a large role. This job is ideal for someone who is a marketing or advertising major, or people who are looking to go into sales. Interns are treated more like full-time workers. A lot is expected of you and your ideas are definitely taken into account.

    Interns frequently interact with the higher ups and developers.

    Office is very open and this enables camaraderie between coworkers.

    It was a very cool opportunity to work on projects that have a real impact on the brand development of the company's services/products.

    The boss is a tech innovator and great CS professor.

    Cons

    The boss championed prompt communications but was not the best communicator himself. He was also out of touch with the work the interns actually do. Frequently asked interns how to perform basic tasks that we were supposed to carry out every day.

    The documentation system is very cluttered, confusing, and unorganized. Documenting your work was a very tedious process and hampered your productivity. Needs to overhaul the system and make it much more efficient.

    They say that people are predisposed to be strong in either sales or technology, but not both. This is very much true with the boss. He is very strong technically, but does not consistently maintain professionalism when communicating with clients in a professional manner. For example, in an email with a prospective customer he used emoticons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Needs to hire some full-time workers instead of relying solely on interns as main work force. There is too much employee turnover at the office when you rely only on interns and this hampers the company's productivity because you have to constantly train new employees.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Cazoodle in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    It was the very basic overview of my resume and talking about past experiences and trying to find if I was a good fit for the company. They asked me if I was better on the back-end or the front end of things and I told them that I was more back-end oriented than front-end. The interviewer proceeded to ask a couple of technical questions, the hardest which is found down here. I couldn't solve this version of the question so he asked me if I could do it with the list sorted. Ended up getting a NlogN time algorithm but the fastest on a sorted list is O(n).
