    Pros

    NONE.....They are totally Dis-Functional....Spirit has been sucked out of the Place....
    The current Engineering Management should be replaced on the refrigeration side of the company....
    and new personnel brought in to fix the issues....

    Cons

    CAD Database and Engineering Files are Un-Usable....Viking switched from Pro-E over to Catia v5 and so all the past engineering data can't be accessed by catia.....The whole product line Side by Side, AR, AF and Bottom Mount refrigerators are out of specification...So they shutdown the refrig plant a month ago.....They have no analysis for their thermal issues, cabinet structural problems, door swing geometry issues, so on and so forth...What a complete failure...

    Advice to Management

    Clean house to bring in fresh ideas and people to convert your engineering database to usable files.....complete the necessary analysis......quit guessing at solutions...get a CAD Administrator that can clean up your smart team and catia issues.....

  3. Fulfilling internship experience within engineering group.

    Pros

    Compensation and accommodations are satisfactory. Clean and safe working environment. Can be involved in a wide range of projects. Will provide solid experience in a manufacturing environment.

    Cons

    As an intern, you might get bogged down with menial tasks. It gets pretty hot in the factory during the summer. There is little to do in this city.

    Advice to Management

    Internship program is effective and should continue to grow.

    Pros

    Small Company with a big foot print in the industry, so if you perform, it will be noticed.
    Good peer to peer working environment
    departments work with each other to compete for the companies goals
    Live the Toyota life of production.

    Cons

    Location, location, location...
    if the industry as takes a turn for the worse, this will be one of the products hurt the most.

    Advice to Management

    I don't have to many things to say about the way management worked, I know a lot of the ones I worked with in 2008, have since moved on. They did a great job, and this company is a Bench mark for many other companies.
