Fun, challenging projects and great work environment.

Software Engineering Intern (Former Employee) New York, NY

Pros- Great company culture. Valued even as an intern.
- Fun challenging projects and you learn a ton. You will always be learning something in this company.
- Very smart and friendly environment.
- As an intern, career opportunities in the sense of converting to full time is a much smoother process than applying for full time without coming from an internship. Still the process is selective but considerably nicer.

Cons- Experience is dependent on teams. I unfortunately had a team with less energy and drive.
- Depending on the breadth of the project and whether you need to work with remote teams, it can really feel like a clanky large company.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to maintain the company culture and make management decisions as transparent as possible.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
