Pros

The internship wasn't highly structured like some companies - meaning that if you wanted to learn more about the company, meet people, and get noticed -- you actually had to work at it. In my opinion this is a good thing - it reflects the "real world". A lot of internships are task based, but if you do a great job at that task you definitely have the opportunity to expand your horizons. (communicate goals early on with your manager)

Great company to intern at, unless you feel the need to have your hand held. If you want to have your hand held go work for Cargill, CH Robinson etc.... but you will be waiting in line for promotions if you are hired behind the 30 other people hired the year you were.

Cons

-Older workforce, can be difficult to come into as a young person.
-Slightly boring culture depending on the group you are with.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

-Corporate departments are extremely separated, seems like nobody talks to each other. Lots of opportunities for improvements if departments communicated more.
-Tons of manual work and reliance of Excel... again - lots of opportunities for improvements. Needs to be an IT consultative department/business function.

    Pros

    Again, a great work-life balance. Leadership has a vested interest in seeing you succeed. The company is highly-regarded in the communities it operates.

    Cons

    At times, it seemed like the company had little urgency to improve its poor performance. Leadership seemed to sugar-coat company-wide issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My Manager did an excellent job at this, but I have heard others express frustration over unfair and inconsistent performance appraisals
