    Standby system is fantastic for exploring places on weekends; very eye-opening summer as an intern -- gaining industry experience on weekdays, and cultural experience on weekends.

    As a contractor, there is no chance to get full benefits such as ticket discounts. The benefits for Health and 401k are good.
