I love this place but I am not the right fit for the company

Intern (Current Employee) Austin, TX

ProsThe people are fantastic and are more than willing to help you anyway that they can. The pay is good but the true value in working here as an intern is the experience.

ConsThis is a personal preference but sitting all day is KILLER. It took no time for me to realize that I am not cut out for a desk job. The ergonomics of this job are hard on the wrists and the back.

Advice to Senior ManagementAbsolutely nothing! This is a great place to work, as long as you can deal with a sedentary work environment!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
