Summer internship

Software Engineering Intern (Former Employee)
Sunnyvale, CA

ProsIt's the comeback montage from karate kid and everyone knows it! Exciting time to be contributing. Contagious feeling of being able to make it or break it. Very motivational. Mdogg is even cooler and smarter than her hype. Also perks are obviously solid now.

ConsThere's a lot of self-motivated stuff going to production so things can diverge and collide at times (with respect to code and product). Contagious work ethic can wear you out.

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