    Pros

    Flexible hour. You have half of Friday off and get paid. Great team. You get respect, listening ears, and opportunity to get full-time as intern. Valuable training. I interned in BT (Business Transformation). They have intensive training not only on technical part, but also on social and communication part. Giving back to local community. Educate kinder-gardeners about planting and protecting greenery. Nice people. Almost everyone I met there are awesome.

    Cons

    Some engineers seem like very nerdy...

    Advice to Management

    I like my internship experience there! It's a great place to work for. I left due to personal reason. But I really like it there.

    Pros

    I started working here right out of college and I could have easily worked here for another 40 years, but life of course took me a different course. This is a company that truly cares about its employees, providing tons of benefits. I always felt like the Corporate group was part of the Hagedorn family.

    Cons

    It's not for everyone, especially if you are a smoking Liberal. Promotions only seem to occur for the MEN who have been there for five or more years.

    Pros

    While working for the company I found it to have a Reliable supply chain, good training in advance of sales, good company values. There are many things that would lead me to recommend employment with the company.

    Cons

    Compensation for the work was good, and independence was much appreciated. However, I wish i had made more money during the time working with them.
