Process Engineering Intern

What I liked

Very welcoming work environment with lots of colleagues ready and will to help. The Jefferson City plant is also the largest production plant in the company.

What I wish was different

I wish that my summer project would have been more successful. My purpose of my project ended up being to show that it wasn't worth the time to pursue a reduction analysis in the build process for a certain type of transformer.

Advice

Don't be afraid to ask questions. There are lots of people that are willing to help you if you just ask for it.

Quality Engineer Intern

April 2020 • Jefferson City, MO

What I liked

I had the opportunity to get real world experience and got treated like another employee despite the fact that I was an intern. I worked with teams to solve complex problems and learned so much. Each day was a completely new experience.

What I wish was different

I would like to know more information about how quality issues affect the company financially to really drive those issues home to supervisors and operators.

Advice

It's important to be able to learn on the fly and use your team members to be as successful as you can be.

Product Marketing Intern

May - August 2020 • Atlanta, GA

What I liked

Very friendly work environment despite working a remote internship. They will keep you busy and you'll learn a lot from afar. Most companies are world-wide, but I worked on projects with people as far away as Brisbane and London -- it was a really cool experience.

What I wish was different

Been in office, but that wasn't possible with everything happening with COVID-19

Advice

Meet with as many people as possible and pick their brains. Listen to their stories, get advice, and ask for their advice with your plans going forward.
