I found working with the German company and students the most rewarding. Working with an international company helped open my eyes to how we can be talking about the same terms, but the way they are executed can be a completely different. Working with the students in my smaller group helped me to see how our thought process is sometimes different and the way the two cultures viewed the project as well. It was rewarding to see the different ways our cultures go about similar projects/problems and be able to pick their brains for improving on the way I accomplish things.
