This one is my fault, I discovered that I really don't have any passion for c# based desktop software.
Everyone in the team was great and really valued each other's opinion, especially our tech-lead.
My manager taught me a lot about unit tests and good practices, he really took the time to make sure that I understand.
The balance is quite good and 10% time is a big plus.
I was writing production code alongside the team, so I got pretty much the same responsibility as the other team members.
Many of the things I learnt about unit testing are quite useful. But I don't think I would do much c# in the future so that's less useful.
Very good atmosphere, people are always nice and respectful to each other and are very willing to go out of their way to help you.
Since I did the same work as the team, I'd say that it's pretty well setup because I almost never reach a point of having nothing to do.
My manager took a lot of his time to teach me things, they had 10% time, and they also invited external experts to give us lectures.
Above 25 days holiday
I personally wouldn't want to work there anymore because I don't find the job very interesting. But for someone who likes c# desktop software, it would probably be the best job in the world. So I'll give a six overall.
Internship (1-4 Months)
