    The best internship I could have asked for!

    Field Marketering Intern (Current Employee)

    ProsWorks perfectly for college students with busy schedules because the hours are very flexible.
    There is a lot of of opportunity to travel for events and trade shows (after you have proven yourself to management)
    There are many other positive things about this internship.

    ConsAfter the summer, the team's focus strays away from the interns. It becomes repetitive after a while but my advice would to be to actively ask for more assignments. I

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive more assignments past the summer.

    Challenging work with great coworkers

    Anonymous (Current Employee)

    ProsI find the work environment engaging and challenging. New ideas are welcomed and encouraged at all levels. Teammates are top notch. Compensation is also very competitive.

    ConsI don't have any major cons, although no company is perfect. There's a bit more overhead than the small-company environment I'm used to, especially work procurement. Also the industry can have lean times.

    Great people, great company!

    Web Production Designer (Former Employee)
    Milpitas, CA

    ProsI really loved being part of a technology proficient team, it was nice to have a team with people at my level of comprehension, learning and teaching.

    ConsNot very current equipment and as is the norm w/corporate, purchase orders take FOREVER, like my contract was over before the po even got past it’d first approval....

    Advice to Senior Managementwork on your chain of command, I found most everyone to be ABOVE AVERAGE compared to other Bay Area tech employees I’ve worked with. There are too many "choke points” along the ownership/approval chain.

    Great company, tons of upside and continued growth

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe people, the culture, the people. Brilliant minds and unlike other larger companies, you don't get lost in the crowd...executive visibility into what you do happens all the time. Pushed to be greater than before and given a great deal of autonomy to challenge the status quo. No two days are ever the same which is good, as well as the employee activities; both on-site and off-site events help ensure we work hard & play hard.

    ConsCan sometimes run lean but it challenges employees to try things outside of their normal scope of work.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep caring about employees and showing that vested interest in the overall well-being of the work force...really shows and makes a difference :)

    Great experience as an Intern! Would love to continue here after I graduate :)

    Intern (Current Employee)
    Milpitas, CA

    ProsOne of the best tech companies to work with, lots to learn through collaboration. Lots of opportunity to grow technically, culture is great! One of the coolest university programs...summer was awesome fun! Good opportunities seem to exist, to continue as an employee after graduation. Managers and Colleagues really care about your personal growth, work with you closely to help you ramp up quickly and then reasonably expect you to contribute to work! Flexible working hours help a lot, to be able to balance work-and-school!

    ConsNot any that I have experienced so far!

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the same culture as growth continues...Bring in more start-up culture! Keep interns busy and excited with university programs that extend beyond summer ;)
