Intern Reviews

  • "Very friendly and supportive culture - everyone works hard and is invested in each others' success. I worked 40 hour weeks and felt that I had a strong work/life balance. The environment at the company pushed me to be better while also making me feel welcome and valued."
  • "40 hour work weeks, no more no less. My department was very approachable and caring group of people who believed in a good work life balance. Everything is very stable here which also means the challenges were also not tough, in a way."
  • "The culture is amazing! Everyone was welcoming, super friendly and engaging! I have met so many wonderful people along the way as networking played a major role in this internship program and even outside of the program. I had the perfect work/life balance and that was a major element that I factored in when picking which offer to accept."
  • "Required to work 40 hours a week. My team was incredibly encouraging and understanding. They were mostly on Central Time whereas I am on Pacific Time, but they accommodated for the time difference and always checked in with me to make sure I was getting enough sleep and that I wasn't overwhelmed."

Getting Hired Here

  • "Interview was of moderate difficulty - very thorough and adequate for finding the best candidates."
  • "The first interview was a virtual program called Hireview where we talked to a camera and answered questions recording ourselves. I thought this took away from the personal aspect that is so crucial in interviews. The following two interviews I did get to speak to a human, but I didn’t think a video recording was necessary for the first."
  • "A fair and concise hiring process. Initial screening through recorded video QAs was an unusual experience."
