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.

    Comfortable place to work, but moving up through the ranks felt like it would be a slow process.

    Pros

    Very lenient hours for Program Managers (not always the case for devs). Interesting projects to work on (really depends on the team that you're on).

    Cons

    People are resistant to change. 3 year release cycles for some products means you put a lot of time into a release, and could get it wrong (3 years in tech time is a long long time).
