    Pros

    Tremendous growth. This company's main issue is expanding to meet order demands.
    Competitive intern wages.
    As a result, profit sharing bonuses are extremely high.
    Professional looking and clean office and shop
    Family atmosphere
    The CEO takes the time to learn everybody's name and as a summer intern you have at least three opportunities to talk with him and other senior executives at length.
    Plenty of restaurant choices in the area.
    Flex time for all office employees
    Extensive intern training courses

    Cons

    High stress, incredibly demanding customer lead times, and long hours for full-time employees that can bleed negative vibes onto interns.
    Some interns say that they have nothing to do, which depends on the manager. Other interns barely have time to leave their desks.
    Some of the training courses are incredibly boring and last all day.
    Some managers are bad seeds and the shop employees seem to have low morale and wage/benefits complaints.

    Advice to Management

    Spending multiple summers as an intern, there is great growth and improvement in professionalism. The family atmosphere is fading with growth so work needs to be done to keep that. Make morale a main priority and help reduce the culture of stress, then orders will get out on time.
