    Pros

    Boston Whaler is a great company to work for. The company is dedicated to its employees and offers great benefits and employee events. The atmosphere is that of a small, privately owned facility but it offers the perks of a corporate business.

    Cons

    Some departments are held in a higher regard than others.

    Advice to Management

    I believe that management should take the opportunity to observe their employees of all departments in order to have a better understanding of their daily workload.

    Pros

    Boston whaler Is a great company to work for !
    There is a Great atmosphere and if you have a problem , there is always somebody willing to help you out ! Security is also a big thing there as well as relationships between employees and employees as well as with senior management so the culture and values are great. You never feel alone at BW!

    I am from France which make the interviewing/Hiring/Visa processes complicated but they really worked with me on that and everything went smooth which is pretty incredible. Cannot really talk about the benefits but I heard they were pretty decent for a cheap price.

    HR team is always available to help and very efficient. Senior management is very accessible and dynamic .
    Best internship in my life !

    Cons

    Edgewater is not the most active place in the US but you have Daytona and Orlando not so far away.

    A lot of the work done at this facility is not for the faint at heart. It can be hot and labor intensive. Long hours may be necessary.
