    Great place to work and progress your career!

    Great experience for intern student

    Industrial Designer (Former Employee) Holland, MI

    ProsGreat company and co-workers. They are really supportive and giving. When I had internship in advance design studio, I got involved to their projects. They listen to your project and give great advice. It's good for student first step into the real industry.

    ConsI've been in Holland Mi. It's quiet and small town near Lake Michigan. I think it's bad for a designer. As a designer, I would rather stay in a big city, that world trend and info will be easy to reach. I would love to have more trendy things in my daily life.

    Travel Administrator Intern

    Travel Administrator (Current Employee) Milwaukee, WI

    ProsYou get to learn much about the business and how it runs. People are very nice and helpful, they will provide you with the necessary information you need in order to get things done.

    ConsThings might seems a bit organized at times and executives don't normally communicate properly to lower tears of the company. They announce major changes within 1-2 weeks and expect you to adapt in that time.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure to have detailed project plans for interns and offer a hiring plan for when the internship is over.
