    Pros

    The engineers are very serious about their jobs. They are always busy, either out on the floor or in a meeting, but if you schedule your time well, they will sit down and explain what you need to learn with you.

    Give big responsibility to interns.

    Cons

    Morristown location is horrible. The town is dead
