    Good Pay, Good Culture, Actual Work Was Terrible

    Financial Intern (Current Employee)

    ProsThe Tangibles

    Competitive Pay and Great Benefits

    Free housing, Great Company-Wide Events, free food, free soda and drinks, coffee, on campus cafeteria, gym-- the list goes on and on.

    Intangibles

    Absolutely fantastic coworkers. Some of the best friends I have to this very day.
    Everyone I came across was extremely friendly, intelligent, and hard-working.

    ConsThere was an impossible lack of communication and cooperation between departments.

    Work seemed menial and pointless at times. Often the tasks given to Finance Interns was un-rewarding and processor-level activities.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt's an engineering company-- through and through. But give the Finance Interns a rewarding role in which they have a manager who is willing to go to bat for them

    Overall, this is a dead-end for finance interns.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
