The availability of the mentors where were kind and informative when I went to them for help

Most of the assignments seemed nonessential and busy work especially towards the end of the internship

Advice to Potential Interns

Symantec is full of intelligent and friendly individuals, but the work they leave to interns leaves much to be desired. Hopefully a full time role at this company would be a lot more challenging and worthwhile.

Los Angeles, CA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The work environment was very relaxing while still having a strong emphasis on productivity. I got to learn many valuable things while working at Symantec.

Downers

Sometimes the work was confusing, as I was often thrown "in the deep end" so that I had the opportunity to try out new things. This isn't all bad, but the confusion at being first thrown to a new task was undesirable.

Advice to Potential Interns

This company has an excellent culture and I loved that I had the opportunity working there to do real, technical work, instead of getting coffee and other useless jobs.
