    Pros

    Senior leadership has the right ideas to lead the company to a bright future. Safety is one of the highest company priorities at every level and position from field to the office.

    Cons

    There seems to be a lack of growth opportunities. The company has a relatively flat structure making it hard to advance within the same department.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be a better way to endure the values of senior management and the company are reflected throughout the company and don't get bottlenecked.

    Pros

    Very Structured, the amount you learn in a short time is amazing. Hands-on experience is great while safety is kept at a high priority.

    Cons

    As an intern you are only there for 3 months so the amount you see is limited.

    Advice to Management

    Continue making the interning experience great

    Pros

    pay, bonus, raises, benefits, co-workers, autonomy

    Cons

    management, training, storm duty, favoritism

    Advice to Management

    Many departments have "tribal knowledge" and do not have adequate new-hire training, so implement a real comprehensive training program - Pay attention to managers who have high HR complaints and who have a high number of employees seeking new positions, many managers don't know the work they manage, don't know how to lead by example and will judge employees on their personal bias instead of their productivity

    Pros

    Great pay. Well structured internship program. Learning a LOT within the first few weeks. Company is well connected to community and offered many ways to get involved.

    Cons

    "Analysis paralysis". There's a metric for every operation and a meeting to discuss every metric. Things can become slightly sluggish feeling.

    Advice to Management

    None.

    Pros

    Great Pay.
    The company isn't going anywhere.
    You will have important responsibilities from Day 1.
    New CEO will be good for the company long term.

    Cons

    Hard to get promoted, especially with favoritism playing a big role.
    Lots of responsibilities means it's tough to truly step away from work and take a vacation.
    Certain departments are in dire need of more staff.
    Sometimes there's a "too many cooks" situation with higher-ups.

    Advice to Management

    Be a part of cultivating your employees' careers. Stop promoting based on who knows who.
