    I worked at H.B. Fuller full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly, down-to-earth, laid back, and supportive co-workers and managers. Great opportunity to learn new things. I was given a mentor and the opportunity to take on new and rewarding responsibilities. The hours were great and the pay and benefits were above average.

    Cons

    None. My only reason for leaving was that I had strong ambitions to have a leadership role in research and, although I was definitely given the opportunity to grow there, I knew I would need more relevant higher education if I wanted such a leadership role.

    Advice to Management

    Couldn't really ask for much more. My manager was even supportive when I told him I planned to leave to go to graduate school (and said yes to a letter of recommendation).
