    Pros

    Learning pretty much anything that you want to learn about as a co-op, and you get put in charge of actual labs and computers. In addition, you are given responsibilities that truly prepare you for a full time job when you graduate

    Cons

    Sometimes there isn't much to do. If nothing is breaking, then you are left to figure out something productive to do on your own. For me, this was a con as often what I thought about was far out of my league.

    Advice to Management

    Create more of a career-path, where after working as a co-op here, maybe there would be places that you have an agreement with to take a hard look at promising candidates for full-time positions.

  10. Loved working with the students and co workers!
