Firmware Coop

January 2019 - August 2019 Syracuse, NY
“The company gave me a lot of freedom, as long as I was able to get my work done. They understood that I had to learn a lot of things at the start, so they never gave me set deadlines but encouraged me to get my work done. The people I worked with were also very helpful and friendly.”

Engineering Intern

“This is a smaller but active company, so I loved the culture, I loved that several of the projects I worked on (and was almost solely responsible for) were going directly to the customer (post-review of course), and I loved that feeling of knowing everyone in the company because I knew that if I needed anything, I've probably already met the person that I would need to talk to. I also loved their relaxed attendance policy: they definitely care far more about a project being done and done well than the number of hours you put in.”
