    I've learned a lot, but not always in the best possible conditions. It is always to tight schedule, feeling behind.

    I have been working at Alcatel-Lucent as an intern (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great exposure to corporate life. Most colleagues are willing to help and understand the co-op position is a learning experience.

    Cons

    High level managers consider a co-op the same as any other salaried, full-time, employee. Work really hard for little pay with little to no prospect of gaining a full time position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider Co-ops in the hiring process. A young set of eyes with present company knowledge can greatly strengthen long term teams.
