    Intern - Great experience

    Environmental Engineer (Former Employee) Bemidji, MN

    ProsI worked as an engineering intern with IHS
    Great camaraderie with others in the office. Wonderful environment
    Great pay/benefits, especially for a summer internship
    They really give you tons of project experience, rather than pigeon-holing you filling out forms or only doing one aspect of a project, as I've heard is the case with many private firms
    Get to really broaden your cultural perspective. If you live near the reservation, you'll hear about Native-related events all the time, and they're all really fun
    Even as an intern, I was salaried and pretty much allowed to work when i wanted, take lunch whenever and for as long as I wanted, as long as I put in at least 40 hours of work each week.

    ConsHuman Resources is spectacularly awful; in the Area Office and especially in Washington DC. You'll have to deal with at least 4 different people when trying to get one job, and even though they all may work just a few feet away from each other, it seems like not one of them knows what the other is doing. I had to fill out 3-4 copies of every form, send out official transcripts (via Express Mail) multiple times, just because Person A was totally unwilling to walk down the hall and show them to Person B (and I was never reimbursed for this).

    Advice to Senior ManagementStreamline your human resources department, but it's probably impossible, because this is the federal government we're talking about.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
