excellent learning environment, smart and informational mentor and supervisor, lots of different experience in a variety of fields, great networking and community service opportunities, beneficial projects, interns are given the opportunity to take on full job responsibilities, employees are friendly and willing to help
I had a great experience, however some other interns had issues with housing. Oakwood (the provider of housing) was slow on responses to requests and charged interns for parking too many times.
Advice to Potential Interns
If you are a mechanical engineer this is a great internship. I spoke to mechanical engineer interns in other roles within the company, and they did not get to experience and work on as many different things as I did. My job was basically a mix between a lab job (running experiments all day) and a division engineering job (managing other people and sitting at a computer all day), so I got the best of both worlds.
Advice to Management
I would have liked to take a trip to a local plant that produces 3M products.
