    I worked at Terumo BCT full-time

    Pros

    Multinational environment (EMEA Zaventem) , Semi good compensation.

    Cons

    Only connection talks (in sale department distribution EMEA), No room to grow, Promotions based on internal connections.

    Advice to Management

    No Room to improve / prove your Competences. Strong Mafia in the sales department (Distribution EMEA) ; Top management positions are acquired based on internal connections and not competences; Strong control of headquarter (US) on subsidiaries (Ie, No creativity, No freedom) US headquarter should give more freedom to its subsidiaries . They should control the staff promotions, give more freedom to employees.

    I have been working at Terumo BCT for less than a year

    Pros

    Great opportunity as an undergraduate or fresh graduate to intern. Awesome work experience. More opportunity to contribute to projects than expected as an intern. Great benefits for everyone, even interns. Great location.

    Cons

    PC, be careful what you say or imply, some people seek out things to be offended by. If you intern, be prepared to be stuck as an intern for a LONG time. In addition, be prepared for your long internship experience to not be counted as experience upon landing a full time position. Be prepared to be let down by internal job postings, most internal postings are only up for 1 day and are likely promised to someone else.

    Advice to Management

    Change the name from graduate intern to contract engineer or something, every interview I've had thinks something is wrong with me for not having landed a job after interning for this long.
