    Pros

    It was my first job (hired on as an intern in college, started full time after graduation). A lot of people there were lifers and seemed to not mind the place. It was a pretty relaxed atmosphere.

    Cons

    I didn't learn much about engineering. Most of the focus was on lean manufacturing.

    Advice to Management

    If you're going to hire engineers, put them in engineering jobs.
