Pros

You get to do interesting and important work, even as an intern. The people are nice, helpful, and personable. There are free drinks (Coke products, Pepsi products, fruit juice, milk, and Starbucks coffee). They have an internal shuttle service that takes you anywhere you need to go and commuter buses with wifi.

Cons

For me, the only real downside has been how far it is from my home, girlfriend, and family. It'll be better when I come back full time though because they're paying relocation for my girlfriend and putting her on my health insurance even though we aren't married.

Advice to Management

Most of the PMs aren't actually useful. You could easily do with fewer of them.

    Pros

    Good benefits, smart and professional coworkers, flexible daily schedule, beautiful offices, good work equipment provided

    Cons

    Too much "Process" can result in less than excellent product quality, also many of the products are not bringing value to the industry/society.

    Advice to Management

    Try to offer a great, innovative service to the customer, focus later on revenue generation.
