Ames, a great place to work

Summer (Former Employee)
Mountain View, CA

ProsMentors are provided and they give good advice. A great place to work up the ladder, so to speak. As well the environment is wonderful, in terms of people and location. Also a great company to network at.

ConsIt is rather difficult to get inside if you are not a United States Citizen. It is possible though. Depending on the department, your ability to handle bureaucracy will be a great asset.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe on the lookout on what people want to do. Passion drives a lot more than anything else.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
