Robin Sharma, a leadership advisor, states “The bigger the dream, the more important the team.” The research and development team at HCSS has big dreams and ideas that make it important and beneficial to the company, and that’s why I believe R&D is the dream team of HCSS.
I am currently a summer intern for the R&D team, and during the two months I’ve been working here, I have seen a group of many people with many different mindsets working together and creating unique products for the company. The projects I have been assigned don’t feel like work because I truly enjoy projects that can make an impact on the company and the R&D team in the near future.
The R&D team consists of 11 members. Each has a different viewpoint, but each viewpoint is moving towards the beginning of a new, improved product and process. Seeing the interactions between the members of the team has given me the opportunity to learn new lessons about the work environment and life itself. The main lesson that I picked up from this team that will help me throughout life is to never give up because there is always a solution for every problem.
Looking at my internship so far, I have seen how the R&D team truly works. The team works for everyone; it works for themselves, co-workers, the company, and — most importantly — for the customers.
Not only do I love working with the team, but also I love working for the company itself. HCSS truly cares for its employees by offering so many benefits like wellness programs and Friday lunches. HCSS has a huge impact on its employees and the construction industry too.This internship is exactly what I was looking for; I am able to gain valuable hands-on experience, learn memorable lessons, and acquire new professional skills. I am sincerely thankful to HCSS for giving me the opportunity to intern work for a team that I believe is the dream team.
