I have been working at Robert W. Baird & Co. as an intern for less than a year

Pros

Laid back culture, active and engaging intern activities, supervisors interested in your professional development. I really like the culture and values of this organization.

Cons

Pay was ok, not great but ok. I guess since it was an internship, I should be happy I was paid.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep the internship program growing as it is. The internship presentation, volunteer activities, socials, etc help develop intern's professional network and skills.

    I worked at Robert W. Baird & Co. full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -Very good work/life balance, hardly ever worked more than 40-45 hours/week
    -Friendly atmosphere
    -Easy to contact any department for help with a task

    Cons

    -Slow to advance with new technology
    -Ridiculous regulations and policies intended to "protect clients" actually produce a hindrance more than anything and are borderline micro-management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to keep the integrity and friendly atmosphere that are necessary to make this a Fortune 100 Best Company to Work For, but don't get so caught up in regulations/policies that you make the jobs no longer enjoyable for your associates.
