    Former Employee - Corporate Marketing Intern in Los Angeles, CA

    I worked at MediaTek (Less than a year)

    Pros

    One of the best professional experiences for an Intern! I gained insight into the wireless and entertainment industry, combining my two main areas of interests. All my colleagues were very helpful in a comfortable working environment. My supervisor gave me great advice and taught me valuable skills about the job by guiding and advising me through the whole process, and I could definitely see myself working there again!

    Cons

    I wish I could've worked a longer time at the company, but I also had to complete my education at UCLA, as I was going to be a junior after the summer I was working for MediaTek.
