    I worked at Timken as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Loved the atmosphere and all the seminars they had for us. Really treated college students as an equal. Took us to an Indians game and did community service but made it a good time. Didn't have to run and get coffee. Valuable work experience.

    Cons

    Sometimes, didn't have enough work to do. Need to trust interns a little more with workload and allow us to show our full potential.
