Collaborative Environment, Values Employee Development
Intern (Current Employee) – Sugar Land, TX – March 4, 2018
As an intern, I was allowed to work on several projects that directly impacted my department and supported the organization. I was encouraged to talk with directors and even got to meet the President of the company and the VP of HR. I was given a mentor and my manager was the farthest thing from micromanaging. She guided me on the completion of my project but never told me that I had to do things her way. All the directors fully supported interns taking training (which cost the company) and asking questions. The culture here is great, way better than any other place I interned. Usually, when you hear that an environment is family oriented you run because that means there is no work-life balance but managers are very supportive of their employees. I do believe there may be some disconnect between other departments and there could be some more collaboration between the HR department. Often times there is a communication problem as well, that definitely needs to be streamlined.
On campus, there is an onsite cafe and coffee shop. There is a game room with foosball, ping pong, air hockey and darts. Lots of meetings and I often see executives chatting with employees.
