Great experience, learned a lot and worked on interesting projects

Software Engineer Intern (Former Employee)
San Jose, CA

ProsBig company means a lot of resources. Everyone was very friendly and helped me to learn their massive coding libraries.

ConsBecause the teams and company are so large it is hard to get to know who you work with. However, this would be less of an issue if I worked full-time and not just a summer internship

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