    Pros

    Interns are really taken care of, pampered almost. Loads of networking and learning opportunities. Interns are also encouraged to take part in activities outside work, like the IdeaQuest competition and community service.

    Cons

    Some interns face issues with being put in a team of their choice. Experience can depend on the mentor and manager you get.

  2. Fun internship, not much substance

    Pros

    Excellent housing and compensation package provided to interns. Very good mentoring program - never felt like I was being pressured, but still was able to contribute to 'real' work. Good program for moving into a full-time position.

    Cons

    The lion's share of the company's official attention appears to be given to groups that work at the main San Diego campus. Groups that are in other locations (even if still in San Diego) can feel a bit isolated.

    Pros

    - Good hourly pay
    - Complete coverage for housing and relocation expenses
    - Plenty of intern events and involvement

    Cons

    - Work experience is highly dependent on manager and team. It's possible to get stuck doing boring work all summer since it's not normally possible to transfer to a different team as an intern.

    Advice to Management

    Have set goals, deliverables, and dates for interns and temps before they come onboand.

    Furnished housing, fun events for interns

    Hard to understand the big picture. Product groups are specialized in specific tasks

    Consider rotating employees among related areas

    Pros

    Nice people, great teams. The culture is relaxed. As an intern, I would say it is a great place to gain experiences.

    Cons

    Again, as an intern who worked for only 3 months, I was not able to get a sense of the disadvantages working in this company.
