Approves of CEO

Pros

Very fast paced. Successful because of a "do more with less" philosophy. The culture cares very much about image rather than substance, so this may be a good fit for some.

Cons

Lack of training and appreciation for newer employees. Seniority and experience is given a large leeway, whereas newer techs and contractors are marginalized.

Advice to Management

Please give the impression that you are willing to spend money and time to develop your newer employees. This should not be difficult.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Very good company, good salary for an intership. Very good opportunities to learn and improve your resume.

    Cons

    Depending on the area, too much work or not. You have to live enclosed in the field, for 15 or 21 days.

    Advice to Management

    They should use the people they have available, and give them more freedom to create new things.
