    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Look into talking with interns about what they want to pursue after college. Maybe offer them full time. I haven't heard of anyone getting a full-time offer after interning here.

    Pros

    Lack of career skills built; the work you do only makes you better at the work involved in Ziegler's niche market
    Compensation, and yearly raises are well-below market average
    Management is unprofessional and plays favorites
    There is zero training, everything is learned on the job

    I worked at Ziegler full-time

    Pros

    Good, hands on experience. Opportunity to dig in and be proactive with projects and research.

    Cons

    Management cares about making money, not employees and not about how the work is getting done. All-nighters frequent and still not good enough. Serious grind with minimal upside.
