Pros: lots of potlucks, free lunches, independent works, friendly working environment
Cons: the temperature in the office was so low and i always had to carry a thick jacket with me
One thing I love about this job is that I usually work on my three projects (water security program, building 3D trips for water distribution sites, and preparation of CESA 2010) alternatively within a day. This helped me learn how to keep track of completely different things at a same time. I am somewhat a perfectionist so I do not only want to finish – more... my projects on time but also with the best result possible. Thus, I was forced to be creative, patient, detail-oriented at all time. At first I felt a bit overwhelmed but after a few days at work I started to feel exciting! I also love how I could independently work on my projects and be creative. My boss, Jim, often offered open discussions about my projects, encouraged and gave compliments when a job was well-done.
Another thing I love about this internship is that all of the employees were so nice and very friendly. They can make joke about anything! A fun, friendly working environment is a treasure, since it does not only shortens your day but also motivates you to enjoy working and contribute. – less
