    Amazing, fun and fulfillment

    Graduate Intern (Former Employee) San Jose, CA

    ProsGreat culture, flexible work hours and work is always good.

    ConsThe manager liked my work but since he didn't have an opening on his team I couldn't get return fulltime offer!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
