    Pros

    Great vision, diligent team, fascinating projects, and a desire to do things safely and well. Really enjoyed my team and my experience there.

    Cons

    I noticed that everybody worked very long hours while I was there, and they did that every day of the week. It made it really nice when I interned somewhere else that had every other Friday off.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the vision and employee caliber, consider a little more work life balance.

    Pros

    There is not much to do. You only greet customers and ring them up. And tell them to have a great day.

    Cons

    There is no room for growth. You can get stuck if you don't learn other things on the side. This should really be a side job.

    Advice to Management

    Awesome people. My boss was one of the greatest human beings i have ever met. One of the best bosses ever. Thank you.
