    Pros

    Community involvement. Wonderful coworkers and Colleagues. There's a cafeteria and the food is OK. There's covered parking.

    Cons

    no work life balance. This company is not concerned with talent retention. The pay is much lower than other companies of its size. Everyone is stressed because the workload is so heavy.

    Advice to Management

    stop ignoring the fact that there is no work life balance. Hire more controllers. Pay a decent wage.

    Pros

    Great environment, given your own cubicle and laptop, work with other interns in a very similar position as yourself. Get to work on multiple projects and at the end you present it to the top management and VP of Supply Chain

    Cons

    Sometimes it can be slow, not always a lot to do, it was their first time doing an internship with Supply Chain majors so you have to bare with them for they are learning at the same time as you.
