    I worked at SPS Commerce full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    In just a short time working with the team here, I built relationships that will last a lifetime. This is a growing tech company, but the culture and environment make it feel like home.

    Cons

    Almost the only con I had working here was that my time was so short, I only had three months before returning to school. I definitely won't forget my time here.

    Advice to Management

    My manager at SPS was the smartest person I have ever had the pleasure to work with. Deadlines were flexible but I always felt motivated to work hard and show results in the fast paced work environment here.
