    Positive Outlook

    Pros

    Give meaningful work to interns, the output of work I did will actually be used for operations well into the future.

    Cons

    No pay to intern. Not a high quality job for a programmer. As coding and operation of website is outsourced, programmer has more managerial and communication kind of tasks.

    Advice to Management

    Make coding in house as it is a core function of an ecommerce site. Integrate SAP database of inventories and make it real time

    Pros

    Being the pioneers in retail, as a fresher I had a good exposure to the field of retail.
    Work culture is good.
