    Enjoyed the work and the people, but not the "big" corporate experience.

    Pros

    Company seems to be profitable and bonuses were decent.

    Cons

    Not a very good salary. Awful work/life balance.

    Advice to Management

    The company would benefit from greater employee appreciation.

    Pros

    - Culture is great - Employees are extremely kind and helpful - Some very distinguished individuals work here (CEO on Forbes Top 25), which makes it a great place to build your personal network and learn from the elite - Many perks as an intern (free company swag, baseball game, socials, paid holidays, etc.) - Facilities are extremely nice (basketball full court, soccer field, volleyball pit, cafeteria, etc.) - Life Tech has many different sectors so an intern can get an insight on any division if they take the initiative - HR really cares about making your time worthwhile and is open to suggestions and improvements

    Cons

    Company is extremely large and people are scattered all over the place (among 3 buildings), so if you want to build relationships at the work place, you have to make an effort.

    Advice to Management

    For such a rewarding internship and large company, the intern program needs to be advertised more. Like other companies and firms, intern interviews, pictures of events, quotes from interns, should all be heavily advertised and marketed on the website and college campuses. Life Tech Internship Program should be a known name.
