    Pros

    Good way to get college paid with their tuition assistance program

    Cons

    Blatant racism and the service centers don't accommodate the women employed for example very limited bathrooms and sexual harassment is a problem

    Advice to Management

    Learn from mistake not cover up with different language. After the last harassment case you started saying "women and men" speech don't lead a company to change actions are required. After the lawsuit in the 80s were blacks were discriminated against the company didn't learn eitger

    Pros

    It's a secure employer.

    Cons

    GOLD program people and engineers have almost unlimited growth potential. The rest do not. Women and minorities have the advantage leaving non engineering males to limited growth.

    Advice to Management

    Try to develop more than your GOLD associates into higher positions. Try promoting a person over 50 into a 3 band position.

    Pros

    They have a great experience in learning and getting your foot in the door with in the engineering field. There's also a lot of connections within the company so say after you finish your internship and you want to work full-time, it is not that hard to if you don't mind moving to a different location. The salary rate is much better than most companies. Regardless if you are working in the office or the field, you will gain something from it that you may not have done before and it definitely adds to your experience on your resume. They also have great programs after college where you can join them on the management path or the union worker path.

    Cons

    Depending on locations, the work environment can vary a lot. Some of the locations are much more relaxed while others are much more serious. This makes the more serious ones feel slightly more intimidating if you start off in one of those areas.

    Advice to Management

    There are three ways to get to management, one is if you're already a union employee and go through the TEAM program to become a supervisor/manager. Then there's the GOLD program which is for recently college graduates and then there's the applying from outside into supervisor position.
