    Pros

    You learn alot about the practice of chemical engineering as an educational intern. A lot of exposure to the different applications of chemical engineering.

    Cons

    The work may become very routine or repetitive and mundane when working on a project as an education intern. Also very little opportunity to interact in the workplace.

    Pros

    Hmm... Good work-life balance here.

    Cons

    Very small raises. Every day I come into work, there are new people walking around the office — this place is a revolving door.

    I have been working at American Institute for Chemical Engineers

    Pros

    Very friendly environment, the people are very nice, very good corporate governance, helping Chemical engineers network.

    Cons

    I don't have much to say about the cons, I liked being there. Only thing that stands out to me, it seems once you have a position, I don't know much up you can move up the ladder.

    I worked at American Institute for Chemical Engineers as an intern

    Pros

    - Everyone in the Manhattan office is super friendly and very helpful.
    - Environment was laid back and non-judgemental.
    - Work together with boss on projects. Not given scrap work. Entire team works on projects and encourage opinions.
    - Learned about contracts and contracting companies. So business side work as well instead of simply working on web.
    - Boss was very understanding about schedule difficulties with classes.

    Cons

    - Work was a bit remedial for a knowledgable coder and could get boring to work on. (Only let down for me! Everything else was great.)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Encourage and maybe give developer interns harder projects to work on.
