    Worst Internship Experience Yet

    Former Employee - Simulation Systems Intern in Houghton, MI

    I worked at GE Aviation as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    The UDC (University Development Center) is close enough to campus to walk to, which is a plus. The people that work at the UDC in Houghton are great. They are more than willing to help you with any issues you run into, and are overall good to work with.

    Cons

    - The team leads that you work with in Grand Rapids (GE Aviation's main office) are overall jerks. They seem annoyed when you call them to ask for help or clarification about a task they assigned you. One of the team leads ridiculed me one day because my car was stuck in my driveway due to excessive snowfall.
    - I got stuck doing simple bug fixes and going through test requirements, rather than doing any actual coding.
    - Time given to complete tasks was way underestimated, and whenever I asked for another hour or two to finish a task the team lead would get angry.
    - The pay is pretty low for an internship in this field. Only $15/hr.
    - The company doesn't really take the UDC seriously. They've already cut back to the point that there is only one team at the UDC, as opposed to several. It won't be long before it shuts down completely.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Think about who you make team leads. People are more apt to enjoy their job if their team lead is a decent person.
    - Increase pay to your interns. Your pay is not competitive at all. It is really easy to find another job in the field with higher pay.
