    Boring

    Intern (Current Employee)

    ProsMy schedule was basically to come in whenever I had free time. They had a couple fun events that the interns were able to go to

    ConsAll I did was sit at my desk and copy and paste things from one location to another. It was the most boring thing I have ever done.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to have office get togethers, great people work there but its not very interesting. Stop demeaning people as well

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
