    Hi there. We hire on a lot of factors and aptitude is certainly one of them. Can you help us understand what's wrong with hiring software interns on the basis of aptitude? :)

    I worked at SquareBoat full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Director is cooperative and helpful in some ways.

    Cons

    You really need to be a gymnast to work here, I made some mistakes and paid for it, because every time you get a project its urgent, coding standards are maintained for some projects, agile is used only for saying. You will be asked to stretch and told that it's not a 9-5 job so don't expect a work/life balance.

    A small design team, hence work pressure is considerably high. 1. Little or no time to experiment in design. 2. Limited learning scope for designers. 3. Little or no appreciation of design work. 4. Poor design management. 5. Some peers have huge egos to handle. Some major cons, 1. Zero work hour flexibility. 2. LWP is marked after 9:30 AM. 3. No work life balance at all. Most of the employees work on weekends to meet deadlines. 4. Poor work management.
