Great IT/BI Internship Experience
Report Developer Intern (Former Employee) – Canonsburg, PA – April 29, 2014
My only regret here was that there was not a position available for me to occupy upon exit.
I learned more here than I did in any of my classes. It started slow, but in a way that made sense. They taught me the back end of their business from the ground up, and I ended up doing production work for them, which I think is a lot more than most interns can say. They paid me, there was free coffee, and they were incredibly respectful of my status as a full time student.
I come from a food service background, and compared to what I've dealt with, the management is a well oiled machine. I have no comment for upper management or executives as they really had no effect on me, although I will say I was included in employee benefits and appreciation days, which was very nice.
Everyone on the team was outgoing, helpful, and friendly.
The hardest part of the job tended to be leaving on time (my own inability to put something down before it's done), and the environment for development was a bit underpowered.
The most enjoyable part of the job was learning new technologies, joking with coworkers, and french press coffee every morning.
great learning environment, friendly staff, free coffee, flexible schedule for interns, valuable feedback and assessment
