I have been working at Computer Aid as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

They're great about working with students. They give an extremely flexible schedule. The office experience looks awesome on a resume. They always have people to ask if you don't understand something. You get to work with industry standard tools which will definitely give a leg up in the job market. I haven't come across any mean or angry people. Generally, everyone has been really nice.

Cons

Sometimes feel like you're doing busy work and being under utilized. You don't really know the people you work with except for your manager and maybe a couple acquaintances that help with job tasks. So, it's not the most social environment.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Invest more in training and then give your interns really challenging work. Instead assuming interns are useless, train them and assign (and hold them accountable for) meaningful, challenging, full projects so we can see the whole picture and not just individual tasks, and do it in teams so we can learn and bounce ideas on how to solve problems off of each other. A lot of interns have some development experience and would love to gain more and help solve business problems. They would certainly do it for much cheaper than the salaried developers and offer a different outlook. Overall, you are doing a great job respecting employees and I appreciate the experience!

    I worked at Computer Aid full-time

    Pros

    I liked everyone I interacted with while working here, I was able to learn new skills on the job. My manager was a great role model.

    Cons

    They try to quantify all skills and abilities, while it isn't a bad thing, sometimes it felt limiting. Long testing battery as apart of interview process to quantify abilities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make room for creativity.
