    Pros

    Culture & no micro management

    Cons

    Lack of Leadership & Direction

    Advice to Management

    We have a manager that is very laid back but there is no accountability for slackers. Room for growth but manager will not lead you to learn to progress. You have to do it on your own and hustle to get promoted.

    I worked at Emerson (Less than a year)

    Pros

    As an Intern, I got many opportunities to work with engineers on different assignments and tasks. Also, the engineering group was so large that there was never a shortage of people to meet and to network with.5

    Cons

    It was slow at times and the work was not very challenging. There could have been more trust in Interns to take on more challenging tasks.

    Advice to Management

    Take more time to involve Interns in the full process of projects, not just the grunt work.
