Very supportive supervisors and managers, good pay for an internship, opportunity to stay as an intern for a year after graduating, and a great learning environment. This is not a coffee runner position- you will learn a lot! They also have great employee wellness programs and activities that even the interns get to take advantage of.
I really can't think of many cons but it does seem that there is a little disconnect and division between some departments.
