Pros: educational, new experiences, and irreplaceable work
Cons: time and scheduling
Attending Georgia State University, I was assigned a company and a project to accomplish. My group and I were assigned to work with Georgia Pacific to update their IT website. We had to make the web page more appealing and easier to navigate through. Working with Georgia Pacific was an amazing experience, I was able to cooperate and work in a team. We were provided with amazing resources, such as senior employees and project managers. With their assistance and our diligence to learn new programming languages, we accomplish our web page scope. Each week we were assigned a goal to accomplish, and if we didn't accomplish that goal, we would have to accomplish it the week after. A typical day at Georgia Pacific would be to enter our teams cubicle and work on our website. If we had any questions, we ask our superiors and our project manager for help. At the end of the week, we would have to summarize our weeks accomplishments and talk about next weeks goals. The hardest part about the job is our teams conflict with schedules, we could never schedule meetings, but we eventually worked it out and finish the project. We presented it to GP's senior employees, directors, and project managers.
