    Pros

    They care about their employees. You always have a team supporting you. The environment and culture is as firendly and diverse as it could get. You get to "own" what you do. That leaves a lot of flexibility in what direction you take with your work.

    Cons

    You'll find it hard to eat anywhere else. The food is hands-down the best I've found in the area. 5-star. And they sell it to you at-cost; very cheap considering the quality and level of preparation.

    They can expect > 40 hours a week some of the time. Its not a regular thing, and I found myself interested enough in what I was doing that I honestly didn't care.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're already doing.

    Pros

    - You get your own office, even as an Intern (some people share offices, but no more than 2 people per office).
    - No Cubicles What-so-ever
    - Amazing campus and community
    - Relatively low stress
    - High level of ownership. You are given a project idea and can take it as far and in whatever direction you and your team thinks is best.
    - Easy to get started in code
    - Free food if you work past 7pm
    - Cheap and amazing food every day. ($5 for a delicious steak with sides)
    - Wide variety of food options. Free snacks (juices and popcorn) all day
    - Buildings are organized so that all of your team members are if not nearby your office, at least in your building.
    - Anyone can speak up and start a new idea/program.
    - Very easy to escalate if you run into a problem
    - Easy to get in touch with other developers and teams if you need their help/expertise
    - Flexible work hours
    - No ridiculously long rule book. The main rule is "Use your head". They put a large amount of trust in their employees and treat them like the brilliant people they are.
    - Amazing benefits

    Cons

    - Having to go home at the end of the day

    Advice to Management

    This company is amazing, keep at it.
