    Intern

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe people are very kind and the office environment is great. Solid salary as well, and my supervisor did a great job

    ConsThe work load fluctuated a lot and sometimes there was often nothing for me to do. I felt like the position was not planned out at all and I probably was not necessary to the company.
