Great global exposure, if you are able to get to a certain level in the company, or be part of the "good ole boys club".
Traditional viewpoint on work. Inability to take feedback or try different approaches to working. HR is very antiquated and doesn't truly take the employee into consideration, and is severely understaffed. The company takes legal risks to their advantage; RIF's are done without specific consideration, investigations and EEOC claims are dismissed unless you get a lawyer, they don't pay bonuses if they can get away with it.

In this program, they take care of all your living expenses, costs with relocation, and provides you with all the technologies you need (phone, laptop, desktop, etc.).
They will fly you out to one of their worksites in the US and make you stay there for 6 months. You will have no say for what department you want to work in. For example, I was a business major and they put me in a chemistry lab. The company has very poor management and the managers are usually out of town 4/5 days of the week. At the start of this role there is no organization and you sit there doing ABSOLUTELY NOTHING for a whole month. If you are ambitious, hardworking, or care about good company culture.. I do not recommend this role. They hired and fired me within a month because of "budget cuts". You would think that companies invest in their young leaders but this company has such poor management that I worry about what would happen in the future. They laid me off because they did not need an extra employee in R&D but if they had put me in any other department I would have been fine. They also moved me from SoCal to the East Coast and gave me 5 days to pack and fly back home.2

Best benefits I've experienced so far. Family environment.
During the acquisition of Master Builders, promised that jobs were safe but laid off over 75 people.

Compensation was fine for the industry.
Notified I was being laid off at 10 am. Access revoked to computer by noon. No prior notice given, no reason given other than "business performance" and needing to reduce costs. Business strategy is inorganic growth through market monopolization from acquiring competitors. "Diversity initiative" includes hiring white women in non-customer facing roles. No strategy involving sustainability in any impactful, measurable way.2Sika Response4mo

Schedule, holidays off, end of year bonuses, benefits, uniforms provided, safety glasses and shoe allowance.
Management is terrible, take advantage of the good workers, hire people who can’t do the job, mangement picks and chooses which safety rules need to be followed, management how’s no clue how the machines work or what finished product should look like. Usually understaffed for workload.3
