    Cons

    Need to be prepared for cyclical nature of the business.

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Potential for overtime and pay. Decent view on work/life balance. Some of the benefits were decent, and retirement accounts were ok.

    Cons

    More concerned about the way things look on the surface vs. the reality of the situation. Facility management is more about who can do the best job of politics vs the best job.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house with non performing management. Listen to employee complaints about poor management and management style. Older facility that needs major technology upgrades.

    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 Management

    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.
