    I worked at SAFT (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Overall a pretty fun work environment... everyone is friendly and helpful (minus a few employees), work schedule was pretty relaxed (40 hours per week, but daily hours weren't set in stone), and received 1.5 pay for overtime.
    As an intern I learned a lot and witnessed a lot of very cool projects. However, because of the work that Saft does, the tasks for interns tend to be somewhat basic and low risk (which is pretty much expected anywhere).

    Cons

    It is very difficult to get hired unless you know someone in the company. Most of the interns have a parent working there. I was fortunate enough to get the job by knowing a guy who used to work there and he connected me to the current engineering manager.
    Also, I was contacted by Saft for the first time only a week before I started my internship. The hiring process was quick but it felt too rushed for me. On the other hand I wasn't even interviewed before being offered the job, which is guess is a pro.
