    Pros

    Had a great experience. The team was young and engaged, I had interesting tasks, and learned a lot. Work-life balance was also great, with most days ending between 7 and 8.

    Cons

    There can be days when there is little to do and you just have to sit off time. Also, the experience depends a lot on your specific team and or mentor. It's a good idea to judge whether or not you should do this job by the people you are being interviewed by.

    Advice to Management

    Be a little more engaged with interns, or at least learn their names. x x x x x x x x x x x x x x
