    I worked at Universal Orlando Resort part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    My coworkers in every department I worked in where all inline with my business goals and made great team members, The company's benefit structure is easy for young professionals to understand

    Cons

    Management was subjective and could sometimes make decisions based on likeability rather than business success, poor communication from management at times

    Advice to Management

    Allow for more mobility between departments and foster diverse opinions instead of hiring based on who sounds more like you


  2. "Engineers were very willing to help out interns but lacked enough significant projects for us to work on."

    I worked at Universal Orlando Resort as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very relaxed and easy going working environment yet still had the "urgency to get things done" mentality. Everyone was very friendly and helpful while being professional. Working with other interns made it more fun.

    Cons

    The internship was loosely structured. All work was basically helping the other engineers with projects or duties that they had no time for. Hard to put some of these tasks on a resume. Also found myself asking for work to gain as much experience as I could from the internship.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to assigning the interns to engineers - in other words, one engineer mentors one or two interns. Possibly have a rotation of assignments.
