Just an internship
Engineering Student Intern/Co-Op (Former Employee), Philadelphia, PASeptember 22, 2014
Pros: excellent working environment with highly knowlegable staff.
Cons: poor accountability and control of student interns.
New to the realm of employing student interns GlaxoSmithKline provided a worthwhile learning experience giving both undergraduates and graduates a truly unique and modernized work environment. Due to the scope of how their workforce is employed, primarily outsourced and statement of work, there was very poor accountability of student interns and a severe – more... lack of engagement in the execution of tasks. My recommendation is for GlaxoSmithKline to better define the role of the student intern for increased productivity and better quality of work. – less
