    Pros

    They provide training in most current sales methods that is used by today's tech companies. From day one, Launchsource builds a relationship to be able to prepare and place you with a company that you can succeed with. They place an emphasis on matching company culture to ensure you start your career with an opportunity that will fit you. I've found the management to be approachable and the CEO to be personal and look out for the employee's best interests.

    Cons

    I have not had negative experiences since starting at LaunchSource.

    Pros

    Interesting research projects (depending on the researcher group and department)
    Relaxed working environment (depending on the department and supervisor)
    Some courses are provided to research fellows to develop their career
