    I have been working at Universal Lighting Technologies

    Pros

    True hands on experience. You are treated as a full time employee from day one. Superb management. Essentially make your own schedule, within reason.

    Cons

    No over-time. Some of the employees tend to have low morale about the projects they are working on due to continuous spinning of the wheels. Also, the company structure is very vertical, as a CO-OP do not expect to have the opportunity to speak to upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do your best to consult with the engineers before deciding to enact a change in their project. Also, keep an eye on the final issue that needs to be solved, the more you jump around the less work that gets done.
