    Pros

    I only worked there for a summer internship but it was a great experience! Great pay rate for a software engineering intern, free drinks, basketball courts with plenty people to play with, great work play balance, very laid back.

    Cons

    I didn't feel like I accomplished as much work there because of how laid back it was. My manager was very distant and the only time we met was when I arranged a meeting.

    Advice to Management

    Reach out to the people under you more.
