Pros

The internship program is obviously designed to fix any problems before they occur. I had very clear project expectations, lots of positive feedback, great working conditions, and excellent compensation.

Cons

The only major downside was the fact my project had trouble finding programmers to actually implement the planned feature, but my manager compensated very well.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It's hard to think of any way to improve - my overall experience was amazing. I guess the major problem is trying to coordinate so many projects in so many discrete departments.

    Pros

    The best part of working here is the colleagues. The people around you are awesome and you learn a lot from them. Flexible working hours, sports and other facilities ensure that you have a life outside the cubicle.

    Cons

    As with any big organization, the work in not very challenging and rewarding. Most of the time you may end up working on legacy on inconsequential projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a mix of challenging and ambitious projects with the regular and routine. Even 20% of good work in enough for keep us motivated.
