    I have been working at IKA Works as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great company, that really takes care of and treat all of their employees really well. Freedom and flexibility with schedule. I had the ability to work around life and school

    Cons

    This internship was a pilot program so there was a bit of a slow start since the program was new to everyone.

    Not your standard corporate red tape issues. Very fluid and growing. Great benefits, some rather unconventional, making IKA a unique place to work. Very employee-oriented
