Pros

It was easy to get the internship. Only one interview, and then I was accepted. They attempted to tailor my project to my major.

Cons

The work environment was poor, especially for an intern. Most everyone was older (40+) and kept to themselves. But, I was in the software development department, could be totally different in the business/sales department.

Advice to Management

First, hire at least two interns at a time and put them next to each other. Second, provide constructive criticism on my professional skills, that it the reason I am there.

    I worked at Silverchair Learning Systems as an intern

    Pros

    The work was easy for a call center environment and there was good access to upper level management within the organization who would listen to intern recommendations.

    Cons

    Transitional period with the Vista acquisition last summer had some full-time employees on edge. Beyond that, there were few cons in terms of the internship program.

    Advice to Management

    The upper management was fine in the Cary office but there was need for some organizational change to accommodate the company's acquisition by Vista.
