    Former Employee - Mechanical Engineering Intern in Chicago, IL

    I worked at Radio Flyer as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Mentorship: Each intern is paired with a mentor who gives them projects straight off of their own to-do list so the work I received was important and implemented immediately.

    Inclusive Culture: The working environment is great--people work hard and are serious about the jobs, but the company has a lot of fun too. Interns are included in all aspects of the job from company meetings, to anniversary parties giving a great opportunity to better understand the real world working environment.

    Technical Skill Support: I learned a ton in my position about prototyping--gaining experience in the state of the art model shop, the manufacturing process--listening in on calls with the tooling and manufacturing company and even traveling to the rotomolding manufacturer, SolidWorks--creating and modifying CAD files for prototypes and costing, and about the different roles in the product design process--how a mechanical engineer's work interacts with the industrial designer, quality assessment, etc.

    Cons

    The only Con for me was the city itself. Born and raised a country girl I had a hard time adjusting to the traffic, but even that was manageable once I started biking into work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work! Maybe some non-pink girls toys (says the feminist in me)???
