Come to HE&R if you want to work for politicians

I worked at Hershey Entertainment

Pros

Free admission to the Park and other attractions

Cons

Senior management has done away with most employee perks, while the Trust company continues to line the pockets of republican buddies.
The director level of managers only come to work to play the political game, manipulate people, and preserve themselves. Certain dept directors will stab you in the back at any chance they get to further their own agenda.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You need to focus on REAL content and stop focusing 99% of your energy on politics and image. If you focus on the fundamentals and real people, the rest will come. I doubt Milton Hershey envisioned his organization becoming what Hershey has become - a lot of fake, ingenuine people at the management level.

    I worked at Hershey Entertainment as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of independence, I was able to work from home. I was able to access the materials I needed to create the end product.

    Cons

    Very little guidance, the supervisor left the company in the middle of the project and I was unable to get a lot of assistance. I didn't feel like I was learning from a mentor, received very little feed back. I worked with some really nice people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be sure to follow through with your interns with feedback. Supervisors should approve a project management timeline and stick to it. Feed back at the different phases. Also, if you are going to provide a written recommendation, follow through with it.
