This review was submitted over 4 years ago, so some of the information it contains may no longer be relevant.
It was so amazing to be able to come to this company with barely any coding experience and not only learn how to code, but get to produce projects that challenged and interested me, and will actually be used by the company.
Even as an intern of a somewhat different demographic than the norm, I felt really valued here.
I was taught it was important to ask questions, and whenever I had questions they were answered in the most helpful way possible.
I was pushed to complete things by deadlines but never felt too rushed. I was never bored either.
(After extensive code reviews) I was given the task of updating servers in active use by many members of the company. I felt that I was trusted to know what to do and how to handle the inevitable mistakes.
I learned how to code in ways never even touched on by the class I took at uni. I may not continue studying comp sci, but I know that if I want to pursue coding in the future I have those skills. Plus, I'm better at fixing my own computer now.
It was a professional, working environment, but the atmosphere was still pleasant.
VERY well organized. There are multiple intern specific events, and the logistics of how interns who do not live in the area are supplied housing are really easy.
I really felt like they were putting a lot into making me the best I could be (as cliché as that sounds).
Sports and Social Club
Everyone I know who works full time after having an internship loves it.
We had houses, so we were able to throw our own events in addition to the company sponsored ones.
Pretty expensive, but not so much so that you can't.
The town doesn't really have a night life but we had no problem generating our own.
There are so many sports/games clubs during lunch.
