    Pros

    No one will watch closely on what you are doing, feel free. Nice working environment and people are nice.

    Cons

    Not much task, which means sometimes you feel boring and do not know what to do. And sometimes the "task" is some random literature review and writing reports.

    Advice to Management

    Consider clearly what you'll need the interns do before hiring them.

  3. Colleagues are great. Work is fulfilling. Great benefits.

    Pros

    Big corporation. Complicated structure. The business is electrical design and manufacturing. The benefits are very good. Annual bonus, retirement contribution, and 401 k matching.

    Cons

    Depending on the type of work, the perception differs. Just like any company of this size there are management issues. The turnover of people in the front office is quite high. Middle management tends to stay for 2 to 3 years and move on.

    Advice to Management

    High performance organization calls for experienced professionals who can mentor their team to be promoted to management.
    centralization of low paying jobs like payments only results in irate suppliers and bad reputation with no cost savings.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Good leadership. Ability to work with people around the world. Stable financial position.

    Cons

    Very slow decision making. A matrix environment is not for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    We've got to cut through some of our own red tape to truly compete in today's fast-paced world.

    Pros

    Very versatile, the program is set up to expose you to many different aspects of the way this division works. I work for power Systems. The employees are from various cultures and countries. Although it is an office space, it is a very dynamic work environment, as everyone is not afraid to ask questions and I never felt that I had to know everything. It is a welcoming environment and a productive one as well.

    Cons

    This is not necessarily a con, but it can be a stressful environment. You will be put on several projects at once and need to learn how to multitask. This is your responsibility as an employee, not a con of the company. Again, everyone is extremely helpful, so communicating is important and efficient.

    Advice to Management

    Come in with an open mind set and be ready to learn.

    Pros

    Global network provides a good learning opportunity. Exposure to a lot of new skills due to limited people to do the work.

    Cons

    Does not promote women or have any work-life balance. Diversity plan is lacking.
