    I worked at Daimler Trucks North America for less than a year

    Pros

    - Loved the building and all of the team building activities -Liked being surrounded by people from all different backgrounds including the business side

    Cons

    - One really needs to seek out interesting tasks if you do not have alot to do. Talk to your fellow employees and manager for more tasks and they will give them to you.

    Advice to Management

    Have a list of tasks to choose from. Let Intern know that they just need to keep working on something and to not be afraid of failure.

    I worked at Daimler Trucks North America for less than a year

    Pros

    As an intern, you are given some responsibility depending on your department. Good work is definitely noticed and complimented.

    Cons

    Daimler is a huge company, and due to the size of this company, there is a lot of red tape and bureaucracy that goes on which kills productivity

    Advice to Management

    Shield the engineers from the bureaucracy
