Clean professional work work environment
Houston, TX | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The company has a decently structured internship program


Downers

The program is more about you helping the department where you work than you exploring your career options and prospects, you are confined to a specific area/department


Advice to Potential Interns

This is a great pleace to start your intership path. The company has name recognition, I will help you on your job search or when applying to other internships.


Advice to Management

Better communication among and within departments. The company is so globalized that is becoming cumbersome to find who does what, and the resources/tools to find it are scarce.


Would You Recommend

Yes

Great opportunity for academic career preparation
Palo Alto, CA | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

State-of-the-art research environment with good people around


Downers

The salary and compensation is not competitive


Advice to Potential Interns

This is a great training experience for an academic career path if the salary and benefits are not the main concerns.


Advice to Management

Improve the compensation including the paid-time-off and short term disability coverage to postdocs. They work as hard as a full-time employees. The promotion policies are not clear enough to motivate an intern to stay in the organization.


Would You Recommend

Yes
