I worked at Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) full-time for less than a year

Pros

Strong network built. Was given project that I could truly be a part of in such a short period of time. Management put me in a position to succeed.

Cons

Moves slow. As it is a research institution, projects move in the year time frame. For younger members of EPRI, there is a limited cohort as most employees are technical experts in the field.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Increased employment of non-managerial level employees. Project/Senior project engineers would be very beneficial in completing tasks that the managers are not able to accomplish, speeding up work.

    I have been working at Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    - The ability to witness and work on projects that tackle various problems in the PDU industry.
     - Great for undergraduate of graduate research experience
     - Great for helping to lead you in the right direction in your PDU career
     - Very busy as an intern as opposed

    Cons

    - Since EPRI is more of a "subject matter expert" and "industry leading" company the opportunities for an intern to move to full time are slim. They would like you to gain experience which makes sense.

    I have been working at Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    -Amazing and friendly people work here. The experience you get as an intern is great since you are exposed to all sectors of the company (Nuclear, Finance, Accounting, Environmental, Legal etc.). You get to work as a team and have total visibility of how your work contributes to the company.

    Cons

    -Responsibilities tend to be monotonous.
    -Can be slow at times
    -Definitely a ceiling on what you can learn but that is with many big companys as you just specialize in your department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Management needs to listen more to their employees and really take a look at what is needed in the organization. Majority of the company is made up of interns and some departments are getting less support financially as opposed to others making it overwhelming at times.
