    Cons

    Not a well developed internship program for those placed in field offices, the university relations team doesn't make a lot of effort to make the interns from field offices feel involved and part of the program.

    Pros

    Cafeteria. Good orientation except if you are having trouble. Do not work orientation around your needs Employees are very friendly and are helpful

    Cons

    Orientation. Very complicated computer program. Terminate you after 30Days after telling you you have 90 days! My holidays are ruined now without a job

    Advice to Management

    Instead of changing preceptors ( I had 3). Stick with one. Too hard to learn when they all tell you different ways to do a task. Don't just listen to you preceptors supervisor should see with her own eyes spend time with employee to get a better understanding ,

    Pros

    Very flexible work environment - a lot of work-from-home possibilities. Co-workers are mostly great people who care about the jobs they do.

    Cons

    They reorganize and change direction constantly, which usually involves layoffs. Very few opportunities for advancement, at least in IT. They don't care about doing things correctly, they just want to do it as cheaply as possible.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that you have a lot of very talented, hard-working employees, and reward them appropriately.

    Pros

    Connecting with like minded co-workers who are also trying to make the best of it under trying circumstances

    Cons

    Office Culture: They like to display the facade of cultural & corporate political correctness while implementing a very condescending attitude toward their work force. This was demonstrated by the way management would interact with employees who they were responsible for managing on a higher level, the crappy group health insurance benefits offered the employees from a company that is in the business of health insurance.

    Advice to Management

    Wouldn't you want your entire workforce to be out there bragging about how great their own group medical coverage is.? Especially when you are in the business of selling and servicing health insurance? Yes, it would "cost more" but look at the "ripple effect" of all that good advertising and goodwill generated by your work force !!
