    Pros

    Great corporate culture; everybody works hard but also really looks out for one another. The company also really values promoting from within. Case in point: chairman Abbe Raven started off at the company as a production assistant.

    Cons

    Not much to complain about really. I was just an intern at the time, but I did notice that people worked hard and quite a few would always stay late. So perhaps one thing to improve upon is work-life balance? Up the head count when necessary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just minor details to improve upon. For example, cater to employees with a cafeteria in-house?

    Pros

    Weekly luncheons exposed interns to other departments in the company. Management truly cares about interns and treated them with respect. I was able to work on several fun projects for my department and felt like I truly made a difference.

    Cons

    Some departments seem distant and there does not seem to be that much inter-office unity, in part due to the layout of the office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Expand your internship program!
