Great company -- treats interns very well.

Software Engineering Intern (Former Employee)
Garland, TX

ProsGiven the opportunity to learn a variety of new things, work very well with interns, don't pinch pennies in terms of infrastructure and software

ConsCan be a little bit political, which isn't surprising given the size of the company and nature of the work. Nothing that all large companies don't have.

Advice to Senior ManagementFind talent quickly; mid-level management could tell you right away who the most competent people are. Some of the most talented engineers are stuck climbing the ladder with everyone else, while they could be making a difference immediately. Also, the structure for finding people to lead new projects needs work -- resumes aren't a good indicator. Instead, again -- ask mid-level management who interact with engineers on a daily basis.

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