    I have been working at Rogers Corporation as an intern for less than a year


    The people I worked with are really helpful and friendly. The job itself is interesting and you are treated very well here.


    The location is awful. To live anywhere near a city or somewhere not as expensive as connecticut you have about an hour commute to work.
