    I have been working at Hughes Network Systems full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay for the first internship
    Selective criteria are pretty mild
    Caring management, who are ready to help
    No micromanaging
    Interesting projects

    Cons

    No free food, or discounts at the cafeteria
    Depending on your office location, not much social interaction with anyone really
    At the times it can get boring, because all you do is read and learn something, which can also be a pros
    More events for the interns would also be nice

    Advice to Management

    None really, depending on the team it might vary. However, I really do love working with my supervisor and his team. He is one of the most intelligent people I've ever met in my whole life expirience. (Ganeshan R)
