A really useful co-op experience
Other (US) | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Diversity of projects, actually doing engineering work and not just what my mentor doesn't have time to do. Having ownership of my projects and the ability to work at my own pace with my own ideas and not structured to one way of thinking


Downers

Near the end of summer some fulltime empolyees are tired of answer co-ops questions


Advice to Potential Interns

Come prepared to work hard because this isn't just a typical internship. You will be busy for 8-10 hours everyday doing real work and not just getting coffee for your boss

The amount of leeway and responsibility we were given. I was not only expected to come up with ideas or recommendations, but also to execute the recommendations before the end of my term.

Excellent company culture, caring and helpful people, boring work assignments and products
Other (US) | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Co-op/intern program is great. The number of co-ops/interns made making friends and organizing activities after work very easy. Mentor was very positive and helpful. Most people I worked with were friendly, helpful, and intelligent. Beautiful facilities. Work events with free food. Able to learn new computer skills. Given opportunity to lead a project.


Downers

Work is computer based data analysis, which was boring. Not enough chances to work with product or do exciting projects. Work assignments are typically not pre-planned due to the trouble-shooting nature of my position. I was not able to be put on much long-term project work.


Advice to Potential Interns

Do not get placed in Life Cycle Maximization as a process engineer. Talk to your mentor/manager about what you want to accomplish. If your position is not interesting or challenging to you, ask for opportunities on other teams.


Advice to Management

The first week of the co-op, teach the co-ops about all the departments and roles at the location. Make sure they have the option of switching teams. Do not hire so many chemical engineers to be process engineers. Hire more industrial engineers to be process engineers. Offer a rotational program for full-time employees. Fire employees that are "coasting" for over a decade.
