    Pros

    Excellent 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.

    Cons

    The 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.

  2. Great company to work for as an intern

    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 Management

    Have set goals, deliverables, and dates for interns and temps before they come onboand.

    Pros

    Nice people, great teams. The culture is relaxed. As an intern, I would say it is a great place to gain experiences.

    Cons

    Again, as an intern who worked for only 3 months, I was not able to get a sense of the disadvantages working in this company.

    Pros

    Worked 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.

    Cons

    There 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 Management

    IT departments are hesitant to make an offer after an internship, unlike other areas.
