    Pros

    Great experience overall as an intern. Was able to learn a lot about the company, work with different departments and was assigned unique and independent projects that were challenging. I learned a lot during my time there, I'd recommend it to anyone. The office space overall is really nice as well. I also enjoyed casual Fridays!

    Cons

    It's a very white collar professional work environment so it's kind of a quiet office, everyone keeps to themselves. No real intern program while I was there.

    Pros

    International experience, interaction with senior management, learn the process across business lines, flexible work schedule, travel internationally, exposure at plants and third party service providers, generous training offered

    Cons

    For some the amount of travel which is nearly 50 % plus can be bothersome. Also the travel is in remote locations at times to the plant locations

    Advice to Management

    None
