    I have been working at Andersen full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits and profit sharing. Friendly people. Corporate values that put customers, employees and environmental & community stewardship first. Opportunities exist for personal and developmental growth (if you can find the time)

    Cons

    1990's era data management systems and siloed departments, and under staffing combined with ultra-aggressive schedules makes for very hectic work. Engineers end up spend a lot of time doing non-engineering work of other departments to meet schedules.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to speed up development of new products, consider improving your IT, ordering, and manufacturing infrastructure to the 21st century instead of using brute force with too few people.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Andersen.

    Interview

    Standard interview. They asked why I wanted to work at Andersen. They also asked what was one thing that I was working on outside of school that I wanted to improve on. They got back to me in about a week and called and said I got the internship. Pretty quick and standard
