    Marketing Internship in San Jose

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in San Jose, CA
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in San Jose, CA

    I have been working at Altera (more than an year)

    Pros

    Altera has been very good about my personal growth; they provided funding for professional development training including project management courses and conference admission fees. They also provided funding for employee moral events such as running events and team outings. Coworkers are generally receptive to questions and are very keen to help other employees.

    Cons

    Much more experienced employees, so there is a knowledge and age gap between interns/new hires and other employees. Employee base is male dominated.

    Interview Details

    I applied in the university career fair, and got the phone interview several weeks later. There were two rounds to recruit applicants. During the interview the recruiter talked about some general works to be done during the internship, and asked several technical questions to check my qualifications. Because I did not behave that well, I was rejected a week after my interview.
