After I confirmed my internship with Quicken, a lot of my conversations with my friends went a little something like this: Friend: “Hey where are you working this summer?” Me: “I’m working for Quicken, this company in Menlo Park.” Friend: “Wait Quicken Loans?” Me: “No...just Quicken.” Quicken is an interesting company.
