  • “A very good work/life balance with lots of focus on employee well-being and proper socialization between full-time employees and interns.”
  • “Required to work 40 hours a week. The culture was amazing. I felt included and part of the company on my first day. Work/life balance was good, I only had to worry about work during work hours. As soon as I left work, nobody expected me to respond to a message until the next day.”
