    I worked at General Cable as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Friendly environment, everyone willing to help teach the fundamentals of the job
    Allowed freedom to create projects as an intern

    Cons

    Not always support on projects, for various reasons:
    -Not enough manpower to spare people for support
    -Tight production schedule, unable to stop to make adjustments
    -New methods met with resistance as workers had grown accustom to current methods

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better plan for co-ops, actually create project teams instead of talking about it

    Recommends
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
