Cons & Pros [Mentor Graphics]
it was my second company i've been in, but the first huge and international one !!
my internship was as Testing Software Engineer, writing unit tests on JUnit framework, of course with JAVA for the CHS project.
kind of i was pretty amazed by that product and the system that was followed there, very organized company indeed.
plus i was working with ZIZO on the same team, and seen how effective he was (fact) and how early does he come to work :D !!
I think i've learned so many things there.
working on such big project, the tools i've used there (code editor, source control, etc..) and working with such nice team..
besides there i felt that i should start hating outlook :D, duno why.. but it was just that !! i really don't think that i'll forget the environment there especially those two marketing engineers beside the window :D, they are both awesome guys !!
And of course the caffeine geek who was beside me, who introduced me to Ubuntu, although the DVD he gave me was corrupted but he encouraged me much to try it :D and every one of the rest in the team affected me somehow, really !!
I can remember that the team was called IESD or some combination of those four chars.. at the end, this company has a very good working environment, with a nice organized team, working on a big cool product. for me it really deserved staying in Cairo for that 1.5 month !! :D
The only thing i hated there is the transportation, that took +1.5 hours daily to get there or to get back home :S but anyway, thats how i could finish more that 3/4 of Code Complete 2 in less than a month, while going back home from there :D :D.
BTW. thats how an interview might go there, i didn't get it this way as i was an intern.
