I have been working at Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories, Inc. full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Opportunity to develop skills in a wide range of technologies. It's a growing company that still has a lot of the fun benefits of a smaller company. Development teams are small. Ownership of your work is expected.

Cons

It's in a small town with two major universities nearby. There is a lot of turnover in the entry level positions because some people want to live in a metro area. I hate traffic, so it's great for me. Salaries are slowly catching up with industry.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Research and Development needs a major movement to "get back to our roots". Independent groups have too much freedom in their development processes.

    Current Intern - Engineering Intern

    I have been working at Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories, Inc. as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    SEL has a great name and products within the power industry. As an intern I always received very good compensation. There were always new things to learn and the engineers were encouraging for me to grow.

    Cons

    Management's expectations are not always clear. The company grew at a very fast rate for a while, so now they seem to be on hold.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Utilize the talent this company employs and make sure expectations are known.
