5.0 of 5 stars

Real full-time job experience in industry. Flexibility of projects and learning opportunities.
Vancouver | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

My manager treated me like a normal, full-time employee. I received real work and was given creative license on my project. The group of interns on site were also very social and offered many out-of-work opportunities.


Downers

Once my project was done, I didn't have enough time to do another complete project. I ended up spending the last 3 weeks doing many small bug fixes.


Advice to Potential Interns

Expect to do real work! It's easy, as an intern, to expect grunt work and to be able to slack off. That is NOT the case here. You will do work that matters to the company, and get well-compensated for it!


Sample Interview Questions

As a firmware engineer, I was asked many questions about linux, C programming, and to develop a short program to solve a problem. Knowledge of data structures is key.

Great experience and learned so much more in the last 2 months than I have in school.
Palo Alto, CA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Everyone was very helpful and knowledgeable. I was never afraid to ask team members for help and if they didn't know how to answer my question, they would go out of their way to refer me to someone else who could help me.


Downers

Sometimes the office was emptier on Fridays, but still found team members easy to reach online.


Advice to Potential Interns

Flexible and stable. A lot of people in the office tend to work at home and all meetings are done on the phone.


Would You Recommend

Yes

Exciting, Rewarding and A Great learning experience
Sacramento, CA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Got to choose my own project that will be used by and help many people in the department. Got an awesome laptop to work on. Can work from home if needed. Duel monitors! My own cubical. Great Pay. Couldn't have asked for anything better!


Downers

We had to make up and sing a song at an intern bbq did not enjoy this at all.


Advice to Potential Interns

I got in through a career fair at my college. I interviewed with them 2 times once in the fall and once in the spring. They hire mostly off of your personality than computing skill even though you'll need have skill in both. I found that your personality is the most important to them. Just be yourself and be confident in your abilities to do good work and you'll be fine.


Advice to Management

I haven't found anything that I would change yet. It really is a great place to work. Maybe less singing at the damn intern bbq and more fun?


Would You Recommend

Yes
