    I worked at Bayser as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    We get to work on very interesting problems, much harder than what I get at school. Even though I'm still in college, my colleagues treat me as if I had a PhD, just like them. This is awesome!!
    The company outing is a lot of fun. We got to go kayaking and rode in a fancy party bus complete with a giant TV and drinks.

    Cons

    The internship was too short! I didn't quite get to implement all the ideas I had.

    Advice to Management

    I didn't expect I would be given so much responsibility. I hope that my next internship can be just as good!

    I have been working at Bayser full-time

    Pros

    Bayser gives us a lot of freedom to explore ideas and try out-of-the-box ways of doing things. I don't know many places like this and I am so happy they found me. I did not know there are companies like this that truly promote intellectual vitality and growth. Awesome!

    Cons

    A tad nerdy! Indeed, this place likes nerdy people.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the think-tank culture. Way to go!

    Pros

    If the boss likes you and you have unlimited patience to work for low pay and no rewards, this could be the place for you. If you have any other options, do not work here.

    Cons

    The boss expects you to devote your life to his company while criticizing your work. The boss has horrible communication skills and unreasonable expectations. Furthermore, the boss fails to take responsibility for anything. He also loves to take advantage of international students if he can find them.

    Advice to Management

    Don't treat your employees like they are disposable.

    I worked at Bayser full-time

    Pros

    Some of the projects are interesting

    Cons

    * Very long working hours (the official working hours are from 8:30AM to 7:00PM!); on top of that, you would regularly have to stay late and work on weekends as deadlines are very tight
    * Salaries are very low and not competitive at all and bonuses are almost non-existent
    * Owner will micromanage every single project and would humiliate you from time to time
    * They claim they have around 10 people working there, but the fact is that they are not even 5; everybody leaves this company sooner rather than later
    * Working conditions are not good at all with computers with small screens and almost all, if not all, computer programs used (Excel, SQL Server, etc) are outdated and, worst, pirated
    * In essence, they are taking advantage of international students and exploiting them as much as they can

    Pros

    It's a small consulting firm, so one can learn a whole lot of things from the many client projects.

    Cons

    Work load is too heavy, and lack of enough incentives.
