    Pros

    Best projects, benefits, activities and learning opportunities for interns, opportunity to meet the CEO

    Cons

    Most of the people in the company have been associated with it for a long time. You won't be able to find young talent that often (esp. in R&D). Marketing and sales teams are full of college graduates.

    Pros

    Independence and trust with all aspects. No pressure from managers yet you still have responsibility. There was no making coffee's or tedious jobs, they were real projects that had an impact on the business.

    Cons

    Sometimes it was difficult to get in contact with managers as they were away and busy. This was also understandable and was not a serious con as there were no circumstances where I was in desperate need for advice.

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be to talk regularly as different sectors of the business felt like they had different ways of working. It seemed to me there were some micro cultures within the organization.
