Pros

Great people, laid back, fun, interesting environment. A lot of knowledgeable employees that for the most part are willing to help you adjust to their environment.

Cons

Hourly workers are asked to work overtime, but not paid for that work. The co-op students are treated like they are completely ignorant, and sometimes ignored completely.

Advice to Management

Change Co-op students to salary if you aren't going to pay them the hours they work.

    Pros

    I was hired as an intern and was immediately placed on a team that helped me transition into the working world. As soon as I grew accustomed to the various software interfaces, I was able to meaningfully contribute to the projects my team was working on. Positions often lead to decent upward and lateral mobility if searching for a different position within the company. Overall the people I worked with were very warm and I had a great time working here.

    Cons

    The cubicle structure of the office lent itself to more of a secluded atmosphere. Otherwise had no problems over the length of my internship term (~3 months).

    Advice to Management

    At times it seemed that teams in different groups were disconnected in working towards a product. While the hierarchical team structure worked well for working within the same department (i.e. SLT Testing etc.), it was sometimes difficult to find the right person when a problem arose in a part of the product from a different team's contribution.
