    I worked at Rochester Software Associates as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I was able to learn from and work closely with experienced developers. Even though I was an intern, I was tasked with designing and implementing meaningful features for one of the company's core products, which made my work there feel especially worthwhile.

    Cons

    While a great place to work and learn, the compensation is below-average for similar internships in the area. I believe that internship positions are primarily about learning, but if pay is important to you, that might be something to consider.

    Advice to Management

    Keep giving interns the opportunity to stretch their legs and make real, meaningful contributions. The environment you've created is very conducive to learning and is, in my opinion, a great experience.

    I have been working at Rochester Software Associates as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Interesting and varied work for co-ops, with learning opportunities in all aspects of web development. The team is knowledgeable and great to work with. Management is professional and approachable.

    Cons

    Communication between departments is sometimes poor, and Intern pay isn't the most competitive.

    Advice to Management

    Many prospective interns seem to be turning down offers for financial reasons. More competitive pay will be necessary to hire interns in the near future.

    I worked at Rochester Software Associates as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They promote a casual work environment
    They have great people working there
    They are in a nice location
    The intern work is easy

    Cons

    As an intern it got boring really fast
    They do not pay their interns nearly as much as other local companies
    There is a definite age gap between most of the employees that promotes unwanted barriers

    Advice to Management

    Management says that they only give their co-ops a small period of time to accept their offer (usually about 3 days) so that they can tell who's serious, but it's kind of a dirty tactic since they offer way ahead of the curve and try to lock you into a lower salary before you have any other offers. Please stop doing this.

    Pros

    the people are great, my manager is great, but he is limited in his ability to change the company due to the lack of attention of the president.

    Cons

    Senior management are not leaders and lack the skills to properly direct the company.

    Advice to Management

    they need to let their managers do their job and give them the control needed to run the company. They lack vision and strategy. Bring in an outside consultant to help guide them down the path to success.
