    Pros

    Big company with a small company feel. the president was present in day to day life. office culture was nice, little uptight, very few perks but a great experience nonetheless.

    Cons

    training was a little lacking, guidance sparse as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a stronger tie between the interns and their higher managers. Manager was hard to get ahold of when help was needed. This was the first real internship program for the location so perhaps moving forward the planning will be more intense. Great people and a great experience that has helped me with my career.

    Pros

    Excellent work/life balance. Pace is not as fast as some other industries (consumer electronics). Company seems to actually care about employees. Corporate culture is pretty laid back. Management seems pretty open about state of the company and willing to share information. Good 401k match, Health benefits are decent.

    Cons

    You won't get rich working there. Bonuses are pretty weak. Sick time/Vacation time are same thing? Don't expect to work on the highest of the high-tech.

    401K
    Dental
    Medical
    Stock Purchase plan
    Healthy Living benefit program rewards up $300

    Cons

    Branch management was incoherent at times. Always pushing bottom line sales, even after monthly set goals were met.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees correctly and they will reward you 10-fold, but only if you are willing to listen to them, all while showing them dignity, and humanitarian respect.

    Pros

    Great coworkers, decent benefits, and great training opportunities.

    Cons

    Managers dont follow what they preach, they dont like change, there is a lot of favoritism. Although it is advertised as 4/10 you often work fridays. Pay is what the industry standard is. If youre a minority, the odds are against you for progress in the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat others how you would like tk be treated. Something their parents forgot to teach them

    Pros

    Enjoyed learning about international business and working with people from around the world, as well as a great internal professional community

    Cons

    Changes in the economy lead to ramp ups and slow downs that can be difficult to manage. A more streamlined HR system would make it easier to be a plant HR leader. Too much time spent in administrative work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider using the AWP model of shared HR services for all segments.

    Pros

    4/10s are nice and you can learn a lot about manufacturing. However you will also learn what "not" to do too.

    Cons

    Management is lackluster and all they care about is there bottom line not their people. Their values seem be more of a lip service. There should be union to prevent some of the stuff they pull.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to you your hard working employees who are loyal want to the company to be successful for the foreseeable future.
