My internship experience was very useful and I learned a lot along the way that will help me moving forward.
Sacramento, CA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The best aspect of the intership is the amount of technical learning that takes place. Along with this, the employees are very kind and knowledgable, leading to an informative and work-friendly atmosphere.


Downers

What I like least about the internship is that the products that my team works on are not very exciting to me. This is completely subjective, however.


Advice to Potential Interns

Interns at this organization are expected to be savvy and confident. Interns may be asked to use software and programming languages that they are not too familiar with. Thus, it is important for interns to be ready to work hard and to have the experience and confidence necessary to investigate and problem-solve independently. In the end, an internship here is informative and helpful on both technical and career-development levels.


Sample Interview Questions

There were many questions about general computer science concepts:

Example: "How is dynamic memory allocated in memory? How is static memory allocated?"



There were many technical questions about data structures:

Example: "Which is more efficient for insertion: a singly linked list or a doubly linked list? Which is more efficient for deletion and which is more efficient for searching? Explain."



There were many technical questions about networking:

Example: "What are the differences between a router, a switch, and a hub?"



There were many behavioral questions:

Example: "What are your 3 biggest strengths? What are your 3 biggest weaknesses?"


Advice to Management

This is a great place to work and I cannot think of anything specifically for the organization to become better in this regard.


Would You Recommend

Yes
