Pros

I was the Environmental Intern at the Strathcona Refinery. Anyone who enjoys analytical work, law, and computations will enjoy government reporting. Some interesting assignments kept me amused along the way.

Cons

Older work environment, I found it difficult to integrate myself into social circles. I was bored at times, my work duties did not take all of my time.

Advice to Management
