    Pros

    - Great work experience to put on a resume
    - Very inclusive company culture, employees always willing to help interns
    - Vast number of learning resources available to interns due to company size
    - Lots of fun intern events
    - Good pay and awesome housing arrangements downtown

    Cons

    - Most groups have no intention of hiring you after your internship
    - Almost no interns were hired on full-time (entry level job opportunities are slim-to-none)
    - Company is getting top-heavy; there were VERY FEW employees under the age of 30 in Minnesota, most are at the senior or principal experience level

    Pros

    Great company to work for if you want to know that your work is helping people.
    Willing to hire a lot of young college students from the area colleges.

    Cons

    Company does not work as a team.
    Pay is not competitive.
    Employees tend to leave for promotions.
    Management structure is poorly followed.
    Very poor work/life balance.
    Has a pattern of keeping contract employees for exceedingly long periods.
    Extremely corporate environment.

    Advice to Management

    Separate upper management from technicians.

    Treating younger technologists with more value will eliminate extremely high turnover and reduce constant retraining leading to increased quality of work.

    Keeping employees constantly laden with work leads to tired and burnt out employees that eventually look for greener pastures. Hire extra employees so that people aren't constantly drowning in work.
