    I worked at Powell Industries

    Pros

    Big company and I wanted to work at power equipment manufacturer. It is also international and has a big history

    Cons

    Starting at 8 am, a bit far from city center (30 min drive), people are not very motivated to work hard, because they are not required to do so.

    Advice to Management

    Put interns on real projects

    I worked at Powell Industries for less than a year

    Pros

    As an intern, everyone was very welcoming and helpful. My engineering supervisor and the VP of sales were very caring and always checked on me to see how my experience was going along and if they could do anything to make it better. Very good company culture. I am thankful for everything I was taught and the advice that was shared with me.

    Cons

    I have nothing negative to say about Powell Industries.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to have fun events for the interns and thank you for making my experience at Powell Industries a great one.
