Pros

Gained some good engineering experience. The internship is what you make it. Sometimes my boss was really busy so I used the opportunity to learn from other engineering departments. I learnt a lot. Everyone was really nice, willing to help you with whatever questions you had. Had opportunity to go out to the field with other engineers. I think it is something about the company but people really go out to help you. You meet smart, funny and really humble people here. Intern social events were also preety good. I would recommend taking an internship with them. Pay is good too. If you have a good personality and are willing to learn, it should be a lot of fun.

Cons

Nothing really. Engage interns with more projects.

Advice to Management

Engage interns with more projects.

    Pros

    Decent compensation, good work/life balance. benefits are not what they used to be, but, are still above average.

    Cons

    Quality and safe work is not valued here anymore. Speed, cost, and profit drive all facets of the business today. Gone are the days where focus on the customer, safety, and quality are top priorities. The company used to be focused on long term success not short term gains, however, today it is more about pulling every last drop out of revenue from customers to make larger profits. The general offices in SF are filled with folks running the business without any exposure of what's going on in the field. Employees used to be valued and not just tossed away every 2-3 years in a continuous cycle of reorganizations of departments.

    Advice to Management

    Return to keeping a solid long term plan in place and truly keep working toward that goal. Value and listen to your experienced employees and truly care about them. Morale is terrible mostly due to constant cutbacks and reorganizations in the same departments every 2 years.
