Great internship program at their Headquarters

Facilities Intern (Former Employee)
Oakland, CA

ProsTheir internship program is a great way for college students to get a real world introduction to office life. With several departments to choose from in which to focus your internship you also have the opportunity to work and/or meet with staff across departments and shadow them to get a real sense of their daily duties.

ConsFrom what I saw, internships don't really turn into real job opportunities in their headquarters as they don't expand as quickly as other high tech companies in the area.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
