    Internship turned to labor camp

    Engineering Intern (Current Employee) Cedar Rapids, IA

    ProsNo real pros.No real pros.No real pros.No real pros.No real pros.

    ConsWork wasn't challenging. Low compensation. No growth potential. No reference will be provided at the end of the internship, due to upper management requirement to avoid law suit - what a joke. Just a summer job. Go better places.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOverhaul internship program.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
