    Current Employee - MBA Intern in Palo Alto, CA

    Pros

    Extremely smart people with impressive backgrounds throughout the company. People are willing to help and talk about their own experiences if you're proactive to schedule some time with them. I only have Finance perspective, but I never got the feeling that you would be "tied down" to a specific group or team, and rotations to other groups were encouraged.

    Cons

    With so much recent growth, there isn't much standardization between groups and it felt like there is a lot of catch up work to meet the growth.
