    Great place to start and gain experience, but don't make a career out of it.

    I have been working at IET Inc.

    Pros

    You will gain experience in multiple fields and companies. You will deal with all levels of employees from plant workers, to corporate directors, to small company owners. You will make many contacts at large companies, and it is a great source of networking.

    Cons

    You work the projects that are assigned to you. You could be out of town for long stretches of time. Networking is not always great because you may be sent to companies that are soon to be out of business, or are laying people off. There are only Industrial Engineers and Engineering Managers, not much room for advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Inform workers about the status of the company in terms of new work. Many people are layed off as soon as they complete a project.

    I worked at IET Inc. full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    -Get paid well. You get paid for travel hours very well
    - Some good senior engineers who are knowledgeable (but they don't teach it to everyone)

    Cons

    - A poor place to start your carrier with.
    -No work ethics
    - They fire you at will ( They fire you once they are out of projects which happens twice a month)
    - They tend to use up all of your energy for the money they pay you ( Since all they do is time studies. So you have to stay there inside the working area the entire day)
    - They don't worry about your health since they pay you well
    -They don't teach the skills to everyone ( Which means if you are just working on time studies alone, there is a high probability that you could get fired once the project is done)
    - No visa sponsorship to international students (95% of the time), but the majority ( more than 70%) who work there are them. They have sponsored 2 people during 2011- 2013

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - To be a bit more ethical in your work
    - Give respect to your employees when they work ( They almost work 10 hours everyday while on projects doing time studies and they hardly get 40 minutes of lunch break in between. They can't bail out until someone comes and relieves them which never happens as they are always short of employees on big projects)

    Pros

    The people are nice, mostly young college grads due to high turnover rate. A good step in the right direction for a more stable position, but not with IET. Good exposure to different types of projects.

    Cons

    Low pay, try to take advantage of new grads. Benefits package is terrible, HE is not the best.

    I worked at IET Inc. full-time

    Pros

    -Lots of travel involved if you find projects and like traveling. That's the only pro that comes to my mind.

    Cons

    - Very POORLY managed company (they are not very knowledgeable when it comes to the kinds of work that their employees will be performing)
    - They make YOU buy items that are not required on work
    - Salary is very low compare to where you'll be making else where
    - Before accepting your offer, make sure you get EVERYTHING in writing since this company is there to make money off YOU. Some of the people I've worked with were not reimbursed for cost when they were promised.
    - They WILL let you go once the project is done and there is no work left so don't be surprised when that comes.
    -Their HR people are the worst to deal with so avoid at all cost if you can.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make your HR people more knowledgeable about the work and perhaps treat their employees like humans. By doing so, you'll have less turn over rates.

    I worked at IET Inc.

    Pros

    You get 4 weeks of vacation because General motors shuts down their facilities twice a year and since most of our projects are with GM and their suppliers we follow the GM schedule. You are not stressed out when there are projects and the company is making money. If you are lucky, you constantly travel and get exposed to new projects/companies at Fortune 50 companies. Good place for an entry level Industrial Engineer

    Cons

    You get laid off when there are no projects.
    Pay is a little bit low compared to what you could be making.
    It's a one man firm, with project managers on top. Limited possibilities for career advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communication with staff. Also realize that the clients are not always right.
