    An OK experience for an engineering student

    Former Intern - Engineering Intern in Worcester, MA

    I worked at Babcock Power as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay and lots of stuff that looks good to put on your resume. You may get the chance to go on a field trip to tour a coal plant.

    Cons

    Mundane excel work comprised 90% of my work. Found myself searching for work almost every day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give interns challenging work, akin to what you would give an entry level engineer. Let them sink their teeth into a real project instead of something you thought nobody but an intern would want to do.

    I have been working at Babcock Power

    Pros

    Company treats employees well with travel benefits, holidays, 401k matching, allowances, per deim, etc. It is a smaller company that isn't as bloated and bureaucratic as many. On the road the company allows 1 trip home per month. Expenses are always paid for. Overall the atmosphere is pretty good.

    Cons

    Often times old fashioned. There are many 20+ year veterans at the company so innovation is often lacking. Only 2 weeks vacation, but there are lots of holidays. The majority of the company is made up of new englanders--self explanatory to those not from NE. Seems to be lots of dead weight around that should've been fired years ago.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take notice more of outstanding employees and youngsters.
