I worked at Patpatia & Associates full-time (More than a year)
If you enjoy working in a fast-paced, intimate setting, this is a fantastic place to be. With the guidance of probably the best mentor I've had (current Senior), I was given the opportunity to work on multiple, high-profile projects that I would have only dreamed of working on at that point in my life. I can confidently say that I learned more from working here than at any other company I've worked for, and the foundation for my growth was absolutely established here.
This is not for the faint of heart. The reward is immeasurable, but you have to be willing to work for it. The hours can get long, but if you're okay with working hard, you will have no problem.
I applied online. I interviewed at Patpatia & Associates (Berkeley, CA) in May 2017.
AVOID THIS COMPANY. They have a bad reputation with Cal students and their name means nothing on your resume. Interview process is a waste of time. They ask basic behavioral questions then make you write a follow up email/cover letter. Also, they all have bad attitudes (besides Nick). Glad they declined me because I found a much better internship elsewhere.
