    I worked at USG as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    You're given lots of responsibilities and projects which are actually implemented and used. You get to work on projects that may take millions of dollars and you get to work with a great team of engineers. As an intern we qualified for overtime over 40 hours even though we were paid as salary. This was a very safety conscious company that was great to work for.

    Cons

    If you work here full time it's a small town and a small office. You'll have to move across the country a few times to move up in the engineering ranks.
