    Pros

    Tremendous amount of responsibility given to co-ops. There will always be menial tasks, as expected in any internship, however you can expect to be working on projects, or even taking lead, that are worth 10's of millions of dollars. Extremely collaborative and friendly environment.

    Cons

    Just the location. Great company in a very small town area (Fox Valley), which will be perfect for some but frustrating for others.

    Advice to Management

    Regular performance reviews for interns/co-ops would be a nice standard to implement, currently there is a highly variable level of feedback across managers.

    Pros

    Good opportunity for growth or different opportunities within the company. Pleased with new CEO and feel new vision takes company in the right direction. Great employees to work with.

    Cons

    Growth opportunities are only in Fox Valley area of Wisconsin if not working in a manufacturing plant. Not a very diverse company.

    Pros

    Fortune 500 company
    Relatively flexible schedule

    Cons

    Office politics are disgustingly obvious. Was brought onboard as a contract worker with the potential for full time employment. Worked in the human resources department. One contract worker made friends with low level management and drove all other contractors out of the office. After she assassinated the character of everyone she saw as competition she was hired on. A month later she quit and went to another company.

    Advice to Management

    You are pretty bad at behavioral screening for a human resources department. Learn how to do you job and not buy into the office poisonous-snake. I am glad there were consequences and you probably sunk 40 grand in turnover costs. Take a bow. Hopefully you learned something from the experience.

    Pros

    Great benefits. They have little turnover due to the nature of their product (sophisticated plastic packaging for mainly the food industry and pharma). The managers I worked under where very supportive. Good corporate values.

    Cons

    Difficult to get support for continued training. It is mainly a Microsoft shop (not a necessary con but little opportunity for persons in Unix/Linux field).

    Pros

    The company is great place to work. All of my co-workers were always more than willing to assist when needed. Working hours could be negotiated when needed to help me with any personal matters. Compensation was fair and in-line with market value.

    Cons

    Working in IT with a global company did require some off-hours support. This was expected and my supervisor was always sensitive to this.

    Pros

    Company is overall great to work for. Competitive pay and excellent benefits. Have never really felt like it is a dog eat dog kind of environment. Managers and interdepartmental and facility colleagues are supportive and helpful. You feel like you're part of a team.

    Cons

    Can be stressful at times when dealing with difficult customers. Company can feel a little too big from time to time which can make interaction with colleagues outside of your department or direct facility impersonal.
