    Great company to work for as an intern

    Software Engineer Intern (Current Employee) San Diego, CA (US)

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

    High-quality interning environment

    Interim Engineering Intern (Former Employee)

    ProsExcellent 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.

    ConsThe 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.
