    Former Intern - Mechanical Engineering Intern

    I worked at Tyco as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    The pay, for an intern, was very good, and they let me choose hours that prioritized my schooling. Most of the fellow employees were helpful and friendly (some more than others). I had a great opportunity to grow and use various tools to learn more if I so desired.

    Cons

    The communication between management of various divisions seemed slow. Also,turn around time for projects was pretty poor. Many of the projects I was assigned to had been on the "to do list" for 2 years before I got there. Meanwhile, I would frequently see many of the engineers checking sports center of facebook on their computers way too often. Certain engineers I worked for were very appreciative and supportive of my help, but one in particular was always a critic and would send me on wild goose chases at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is important to listen to manufacturing operator input, and look for long term solutions for problems, not a quick fix to maintain production numbers for the short term. I saw alot of this during my short time at the plant. Overall the people you work with make or break the company and I think there should have been more attention placed on what exactly everyone is doing to contribute.

    Boring/easy projects, spent more time waiting for my boss to be ready to evaluate my project than actually spent working on them. Enjoyed internship, but not looking for full time here
