    Pros

    lots of freedom to move jobs and functions, new facility upgrades, small town

    Cons

    lower end of pay scale, small town, senior leaders too short term focused

    Advice to Management

    Need to refocus on product vs. just financial growth and size. Losing some of the small company feel as well as entrepreneurship and innovation. Need to better balance work life balance

    Pros

    Flexible work hours, good guidance, global interaction. My internship was very good and I will recommend it to any engineering student. It will give you a good foundation in engineering as well as understanding business practices.

    Cons

    Location is far away from major cities. Chicago is 1.5 hrs, and Detroit, even further. Restaurant options are limited, and few places of interest for young professionals.
