The best aspects of the Intenrship had to be the work culture, and the emphasis on creating quality product.

All interns were assigned tasks on our first day instead of having to wait until someone found something we could do.

Downers

Some of the tools developed internally by the company were a bit difficult to understand since there was no guide to help learn how to use it.

The company cares a great deal about its employees. The facilities have been updated to help relieve stress throughout the day and the hours are very flexible.
