    Former Intern - Junior Analysis Assistant in Heathrow, FL
    Former Intern - Junior Analysis Assistant in Heathrow, FL

    I worked at Symantec as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    My hours were from when I got out of school until around 5-6. They taught me everything I needed to know and gave me all the material to learn from. Aside from that, you only needed some experience with the Microsoft Office suite

    Cons

    My boss was the worst part. Learn to get on their good side, fast.
