California is great, but work is disappointing - bored all the time.

San Jose, CA | 2017 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Located in California and all the financials are taken care of.

Downers

Doesn't seem to be very structured within the internship itself (compared to other companies such as P&G and Johnson and Johnson), and the work isn't meaningful.

Advice to Potential Interns

I wish I had known that there is not much structure within the internship itself, and interns are given menial tasks.

Advice to Management

I wish the company actually had relevant work for interns.
