    Great company to work for as an intern

    Software Engineer Intern (Current Employee)
    San Diego, CA

    Pros- Good hourly pay
    - Complete coverage for housing and relocation expenses
    - Plenty of intern events and involvement

    Cons- Work experience is highly dependent on manager and team. It's possible to get stuck doing boring work all summer since it's not normally possible to transfer to a different team as an intern.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHave set goals, deliverables, and dates for interns and temps before they come onboand.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    High-quality interning environment

    Interim Engineering Intern (Former Employee)

    ProsExcellent housing and compensation package provided to interns. Very good mentoring program - never felt like I was being pressured, but still was able to contribute to 'real' work. Good program for moving into a full-time position.

    ConsThe lion's share of the company's official attention appears to be given to groups that work at the main San Diego campus. Groups that are in other locations (even if still in San Diego) can feel a bit isolated.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great Internship! Would do again 10/10

    IT Intern (Former Employee)
    San Diego, CA

    ProsWorked residential IT prior to the internship, was placed in a technical position and started learning how to support an enterprise. Personally, I had great management support and felt I was placed in the right area.

    ConsThere are a lot of meetings with different groups of people. It can be extremely hard to follow someone not in your line of expertise.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIT departments are hesitant to make an offer after an internship, unlike other areas.
