    Pros

    They helped you learn java, were very patient and were flexible with school schedules. Very laid back atmosphere, and great work/life balance which is important, especially as a student.

    Cons

    The lack of structure in some of the projects made it difficult at times to know where to go at some points, especially early on. Sometimes when you needed help with a project you were working on, it could take a long time to find the right person to help you.

    Advice to Management

    Organize the work flow a little better in such a way that when a project is completed, the employee may know what the next step is and doesn't hit any lulls in the day. Overall great experience and good managers!

    Pros

    Very scrappy, able to accomplish what they need to with limited resources. Great people to work with. The most flexible company I've had an opportunity to work for. Never asked for more than 40 hours a week, worked with school schedules and family life. The work atmosphere is quiet for the most part and divided up with shared cubicles providing limited distraction.

    Cons

    Very old school, little to no opportunity to learn new technologies. Slow transitions for career advancement. No time to tackle tech debt, always chasing the fires. When looking for assistance on a task or project you could end up being sent around to talk to just about everyone in the company.

    Pros

    Interesting technology and business. The company and other employees are interested in and supportive of introducing new technologies if they are a good fit for the problem. People were great to work with and were very helpful when just starting. The company cares about the success of all their employees and treat contractors the same as their regular employees. They work to maintain a fun company culture.

    Cons

    Because there were many different applications to support, work tended to be somewhat silo'ed with each developer handling separate applications.

    Pros

    Super flexible with schedules, people here are amazing, can't find a better work environment anywhere

    Cons

    As an intern you can't really complain about benefits and things like that because, well, you're an intern. You're pretty happy to be getting paid at all

    Pros

    Still has the feel of a small company - each individual can make a real difference. The challenge to satisfy market demands is real, the work is rewarding, and the opportunities to affect the market are good. The people and culture here are also a big plus. Management seems to do a good job of informing employees about the business' goals and performance as a whole.

    Cons

    Employee feedback on individual performance is somewhat vague. Performance management is seen by management more or less as an evil that has to be tolerated rather than a useful tool to help individuals grow. Employee improvement is pretty much up to the employee - the company doesn't necessarily facilitate skills development through training, conferences, pilot programs, etc. I have seen a few individuals sent to industry (i.e., software development) conferences, but that is the exception rather than the rule. Other than that I have not witnessed any real employee training.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more about individual performance, focus more on encouraging skills development.

    Pros

    Good learning experience as an intern. Flexible with work to allow for school.

    Cons

    Small chances for advancement from intern to full-time.

    Advice to Management

    It was a great learning experience but had little opportunity to join the company after internship.
