    I worked at SMART Modular (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very friendly company culture. Well known company in the industry, management always came off friendly and supportive to team members.

    Cons

    Perhaps could get involved in more cutting edge areas of the industry. Other than that, didn't see many negatives in my short intern time there.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the positive work atmosphere, there seemed to be good company morale while I was there. Don't see why that would've changed.

    I worked at SMART Modular full-time

    Pros

    I loved the close knit and kinda relaxed nature of the workplace. Helped acclimate to my first professional job

    Cons

    I did not seem to find anything wrong with the place. For a professional white collar internship they only paid 12.50 however.

    Advice to Management

    Raise wage depending on job type so that people are inclined to return. Also it would be great to provide some free food in the cafeteria.
