    Pros

    competitive salary, lodging reimbursement, relocation reimbursement, paid timeoff. worked on projects just same as a full-time. oppurtunities to get access to top-level technologies and made real contributions to the future products

    Cons

    management processing was slow, probably due to huge organizations and huge amount of employees.

    Advice to Management

    new employee orientation should be more departmental-/team-specific other than general introductions to the whole company.

    Pros

    Insanely good benefits for an undergraduate internship. High pay, exciting work, amazing people.

    Cons

    No cons come to mind. Traffic is heavy in the area but that's the price you pay to live and work in California.

    Pros

    1. Free relocation package during intern period, including relocation reimbursement. 2. Great amount of intern activities and is a good way to know other interns from all over the area. 3. Managers have plans for interns and projects are given based on each one's ability. 4. They also provide many chances to get to know different teams and fields, and also provide applications for job transition. 5. Abundant resource such as online training and tech talks, even industrial business introductions. 6. Great weather, beautiful city. 7. High opportunity to obtain rehire after finishing acedamy.

    Cons

    1. Work load really depends on the manager. Some are really pushy. 2. Total amount of interns are too large that they always miss some things or mails for some people. 3. Some interns get really simple or not-that-critical projects, which makes them feel not participating in the teamwork.


  9. Incredible workplace that cares for their employees and listens to the creative ideas of everyone.

    Pros

    The way they hold work-life balance in a high regard, a flexible company that values its employees and treats them very well.

    Cons

    It's a large company so it might be hard to climb to the top ranks quickly if that's your goal

    Pros

    The internship program had very good compensation and excellent accommodations. They also hosted a lot of social events to help interns meet each other.

    Cons

    During my summer internship, I wasn't given a lot of responsibility or particularly challenging work and didn't really use or expand my technical skills.

    Advice to Management

    Managers should try to give interns a project that will help them to further their technical skills and not just busy work.
