I worked at Applied Optimization as an intern (Less than a year)
I only interned for about 6 months there (moving out of state was why I left) but great company! Friendly employees that didn't get annoyed by all the questions I had, great boss that gave me satisfying projects (which he actually used). All-in-all, would definitely recommend.
Dayton, OH is not the most exciting location but that's about the only con.
