Fun environment, but probably not worth it in the long run.

SEO Intern (Current Employee) Sunnyvale, CA

ProsFree lunch. Young environment offers a lot of opportunity to meet great people and new friends. The work is also fairly varied so it's not too boring.

ConsVery poor pay. Interns are often overlooked or dismissed as useless. The employees can be very clique-y, which can lead to frustration.

Advice to Senior ManagementAppreciate your interns. Allow for salary negotiations. Quit taking advantage of the recession to use intelligent people for menial labor. Limit the number of interns you hire so that there is actually a hope of starting a career with the company. If you don't want to do this, then why are you even hiring interns? Doing this makes us feel taken advantage of.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
