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


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


    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

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
