    Pros

    Very smart co-workers to learn from
    Company prides itself in being top-notch, interns are treated well and exposed to many learning experiences
    University Relations sets up good events for interns
    The goal of the company is to create devices that work FOR patients, not as cost driven

    Cons

    Lack of direction
    Spent much time learning about medical devices, not much working with them
    Look for an extension if you are only there for 3 months

    Advice to Management

    Have interns sit in every meeting, include them in emails. As long as it isn't proprietary, it will give the intern a better idea of cross-department interaction.
