    Pros

    Great culture and work life balance. People is always willing to help and set you up for success since day one. Extremely structured and organized intern program.

    Cons

    If you are in a plant, sometimes you have to flex hours or work long hours to meet with people that work in either second or third shift. It was not very often but it did happened.
