When I started looking for an internship and full-time career, I knew I wanted a company that would challenge me, mentor me, and further the academic foundation I developed in college. I found all of that at Salas O’Brien. I work in a great environment, plus I get to work on some pretty cool projects. I’ve been here a year and can’t see myself doing anything else, anywhere else.
