This company makes software for people movers, which means it's just the sort of outfit that hires dozens of interns each summer from local colleges for a taste of real-world IT work, reports a pilot fish on the inside.

"We were assigned an intern for our central control group, which designed the systems for monitoring and controlling our automated trains," fish says.

"My manager specifically assigned this young man to work with me."

Trouble is, fish already has his hands full with a project that has a very aggressive timeline to create some very complex software.

It controls a dozen contactors, each of which will switch 600 volts at 30 amps -- enough to kill anyone who gets zapped by it.
