    Pros

    Très bon accueil, très bon intégration de la part de l'ensemble des collaborateurs. Le management et l'environnement sont basés sur le "bien vivre ensemble" et sur la confiance. De plus, très bel environnement de travail (site de Rocky Hill) grâce à des espaces verts, une salle de sport et locaux lumineux et spacieux.

    Cons

    Aucun inconvénients, je n'ai jamais été aussi bien intégrée lors d'un stage en entreprise en particulier, lors de mes stages en France.

    Pros

    Arbeitsplatz mit sicheren Zukunftperspektiven .
    Sehr gute Soziale absicherung durch angebote der Altersvorsorge und Zukunftsicherung.
    Arbeitsplatz wo die Arbeitssicherheit sehr hohe priorität hat was auch durch Schulungen den Mitarbeitern vermittelt wird das gibt mir ein gutes gefühlfür einen sicheren Arbeitsplatz.

    Cons

    Das Miteinander von Geschäftsleitung Arbeitnehmervertretung und mitarbeitern ist verbesserungswürdig da es in vielen dingen einfach um das offene Wort geht womit einiges gut und einfach

    Advice to Management

    Förderung eines Menschlicheren umgangs zwischen Mitarbeitern und Vorgesetzten auch in zeiten des strebens nach immer grösseren Gewinnoptimierung denn unzufriedene MItarbeiter bringen schlechtere Leistung was sich im Krankenstand und somit auch in der Effizienz bemerkbar macht wenn die verbleibenden Mitarbeiter diese Leistung mit erbringen müssen.Das ist eine Spirale die in die falsche richtung geht.

    Pros

    You will be working with well prepared employees and you will learn a lot from them. Additionally, you will have lots of resources.

    Cons

    It is difficult to have a job offer after your internship, especially if you don't have a master degree.

    Advice to Management

    I would recommend a one week training for all new interns in order to have a deeper knowledge of what you will have to do.

    Pros

    Fun people to work with. Easy going place, but strict on due dates. They let people manage themselves with no micromanagement. Have confidence in all employees and encourage others to get their work done.

    Cons

    Sometimes there is little confrontation from managers and you will be lost on your project. Have to find help yourself on some things you are working on.
