    Former Employee - Internal Audit Intern in Detroit, MI (US)

    I worked at Wayne State as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Worked here as a student while completing my degrees. Management was very respectful of other time demands that I had and was happy to set up a flexible schedule. Experienced staff members helped the interns to develop their skills and continued to provide support throughout the length of the position. Hours were very reasonable, with little to no requirement to work overtime.

    Cons

    As with many large institutions, there's an element of bureaucracy when it comes to human resources. Pay is probably not competitive to private companies, particularly when considering recent cuts. Physical work environment, in terms of buildings and equipment, may be outdated relative to what is available beyond public education.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better strategic planning for the University as a whole. More modern computer systems would make work more efficient.
