    Pros

    Salary is okay, about typical

    Cons

    Understaffed, but won't bring in new people when needed
    When orders pick up, kiss your work/life balance goodbye, overtime is declared on a moment's notice, including Saturdays
    Horrible working environment, very noisy
    Management expects clockwork precision in attendance, one nanosecond late (no matter what reason), and you get demerit points
    A "we own your soul" attitude in general

    Advice to Management

    Keep an adequate staff in place, even if that means bringing in more temps when the workload is heavy. Stop declaring overtime at the last minute, plan it ahead of time and give advance notice. A little courtesy goes a long way. And give employees/contractors more flexible options on when to work their overtime, instead of requiring them to come in at 5 in the morning.

  2. Good intern experience

    Pros

    As an intern, exposed to a lot of situations, so large opportunity for growth.

    Pay is good for an internship

    Cons

    It's a big company, so a lot of times you can get bogged down by the bureaucracy

    Advice to Management

    The leaders do a good job and I like the Company's direction
