    I worked at World Wide Technology as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    --Internship Program is deeply rooted in learning from current executives and truly learning what the company does on a day to day basis. There were meetings several times a month with VPs and even the President of the company to better understand the nature of the business and future opportunities.
    --Great flexibility within positions to create personal projects that benefit the company and provide invaluable experience.
    --True lack of walls standing between people of different levels in the company. Part-timers, interns, directors and even vice presidents communicate regularly and offer a sense of belonging and teamwork on all levels.
    --Most importantly the company doesn't just preach its core values, but actually lives by it. Those who believe in the core values prove to be long time employees who love their job, team and their work/life balance.

    Cons

    --More could be done to incorporate all of the interns together. The internship program itself separates the interns into teams based on department, therefore leaving very little interaction between interns of different departments.
    --Some first-time interns start directly in the corporate office and therefore do not understand the supply chain aspect (warehouse) of what the company does.

    Advice to Management

    Keep leading by the core values and recruiting hard working students while providing opportunities as the company continues its growth.

    Pros

    Great company policies, very employee friendly HR policies.

    Cons

    May be my isolated case but my manager was a nutcase, he was unmarried in mid thirties, I guess no family life and used to screw up the team all the time. Extreme case of micromanagement, out of 6 from the team 2 of us quit in 2 weeks just because of him. It really proves the point that employees don't quit companies, they quit managers.

    Advice to Management

    keep up the good work, but keep tab on bad apples (manager in this case), being workaholic is good for someone not be for others.
