    I have been working at Electro-Motive

    Pros

    Electro Motive is good place to work as an intern. It has great people to work with, $19-22 /hr for Interns, and lots of opertunity to travel.

    Cons

    Some of the mid level management at ElectroMotive is kinda shoty. But after you get past the bad ones everything else seems to come together pretty well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would advise the management to get to know there employees better. Some of the manager don't even know the names of the people under them. And get to know what your employees projects are and what the challenges are.
