Pros

Learned so much about corporate finance. Good work experience and visibility of how a company works. Got to see how class stuff actually applies to the work field in an engaging way and not just copying papers.

Cons

Not too much structure, sometimes purpose is a little lost on a new intern.

Advice to Management

Maybe have more of a program for interns other than just having activities planned.. Like project bassed stuff with some sort of curriculum or clear goal at the end.

    Pros

    Probably the benefits. The managers really make sure that the employees receive detail info about the benefits...especially the health insurance benefits.

    Cons

    It would have to be the pay for the CSR's. Don't expect a big increase at yearly review time.

    Advice to Management

    Don't expect miracles...training has to be top notch if you expect the gold standard.


  2. "Intern learns much about company and how to act within a corporate headquarters."

    Pros

    Amazing headquarters and corporate culture is one of the best I have seen. Very relaxed and comfortable. The people are all very nice, and the executives seem to interact with all the employees on a regular basis. Great intern program. Since it is a lawn company, Jim likes to let the employees out early on Fridays during the summer if it is a nice day. All the execs held luncheons for the interns throughout the program and really took the time to answer questions about what they do, how they got to where they are, and what they think the interns could do to improve their career search.

    Cons

    The headquarters is located in Marysville, Ohio which is in the middle of nowhere.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to teach the interns and help them get acquainted with the business. I enjoyed my internship completely and felt that I belonged as an employee.
