    Pros

    Great benefits, and the culture is great. Everyone is willing to share and help out and help you make the most of your opportunity. Absolutely great company.

    Cons

    Very challenging work. As an intern you are expected to learn everything extremely quickly and to perform at a very high level.

    Advice to Management

    No complaints about management. My supervisor has been very helpful in explaining what he expects from me and what it will take from me to get to that point.
