    I worked at Calxeda as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    The company culture is amazing, everyone is super friendly. I found that it very relaxed while still maintaining a level of seriousness. You get to talk to people from various departments which increases your knowledge of the industry.
    Plenty of opportunities for social interaction.
    Free gym access in the building for employees.

    Cons

    Some weeks can go over 40 hours but there is overtime pay.

    I have been working at Calxeda as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Cool people. The developers there are very intelligent and can help you if you have any problems.

    Laid back atmosphere, and the other interns were very easy to get along with.

    Good tools. I love Python and git, and this is what's used there. Also, Linux.

    Cons

    I can't think of one. I'm only leaving because I want to see what else is out there.
