    (Translated from English)

    Pros

    - Une très bonne entreprise avec des affaires intéressantes et des gens intelligents
    - La complexité des produits et le haut niveau de technologie
    - Une entreprise qui change beaucoup et qui s'adapte avec succès
    - Le nouveau PDG poids-lourd

    - Bien que l'évolution ait été énorme au cours des 3 dernières années, il faut encore beaucoup de temps pour s'adapter au nouvel environnement.

    - Sauf pour le dernier point qui est entrain de changer, je n'ai pas d'autre point négatif.

    Les conditions de stage sont très bonnes, j'ai reçu une gratification importante pour un premier stage. Le sujet du stage était intéressant et j'ai eu pas mal de responsabilités.
