    A truly great product, supported by an entire company of amazing people

    Marketing Intern (Current Employee) Milpitas, CA

    ProsFull time employees are more than welcoming to interns. Weekly discussions from C-level executives have been informative and a great introduction to different realms of the company. The internship program is set-up to create a community of interns to network, whilst integrating them into the company culture. Fun events such as Giants games and group lunches are scheduled. Projects that I have been working on have been meaningful work with a great amount of overview given into the bigger picture of the company. Most importantly, other employees have taken the time to teach and educate on the company procedures and mission. Overall, awesome environment to be working in.

    ConsThe company has grown rapidly so keeping up with the fast pace can be a challenge- but an enjoyable one.

    Great Company

    Account Development Representative (Current Employee) Salt Lake City, UT

    ProsFast growing, great compensation, flexible. The team is very positive and very willing to help with anything that will help benefit the company.

    ConsStill new, not sure quite where the road will take them. Goals are still shaky and would like more information from up top. But that is expected with new up and coming companies.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDoing a great job!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
