What do you enjoy most about your internship?

SurveyMonkey has a very friendly and relaxed office culture. The projects I got to work on had a direct impact on the business and provided many opportunities to learn.

Understanding the development process and the various technologies involved took some time, because I had never worked with anything at this scale before.
