Featured Review

I have been working at Altera

Pros

Lots of things to do.

Cons

Workload can pile up fast. Don't slack.

Former Intern - Research Intern

I worked at NVIDIA for less than a year

Pros

Absolutely loved interning in here. The culture is great: collaborative, cutting-edge, and enthusiastic. Extremely talented bunch of people who're always willing to help you out. Amazed to see the... impact interns can have on the organization.

Cons

None at all. Probably just that interns don't get the other benefits that full-time employees do.
