    Pros

    Real-world business application Competitive hiring process Hands-on work Interns are treated like they are full-time employees instead of just being there to staple papers

    Cons

    Overall, the experience was nothing but beneficial for me. I learned in-depth about the business and developed as a professional.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to provide interns with the opportunity to work on real projects. The accountability is important for development of employees.

    Pros

    This review is for the predictive modeling group. Relaxed atmosphere, fun group.

    Cons

    Old, slow corporate environment. When I was there they seemed to have trouble sufficiently rewarding high-quality "individual contributors" - the way "up" was into management. In theory this wasn't true, but it seemed to work that way in practice. Maybe it's changed.

    Pros

    - fast paced - online courses you can take to refine your skills - great pay and benefits

    Cons

    - lack of transparency between management and employees concerning process changes. - somewhat disorganized onboarding and training processes.

    Advice to Management

    Let your employees know about changes months before the deadline, not 1 month.
