4.0 of 5 stars

Working at a high quality company while learning worthwhile things.
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.


Sample Interview Questions

How would you go about coding a solution to this specific problem ____? Write up a function in C++ to tell if 2 strings are anagrams of each other.


Advice to Management

Automation tasks and distribution yields cookie cutter scripts
Los Angeles, CA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

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


Downers

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.


Sample Interview Questions

Describe public/private key encryption

Try/Catch clauses in Java


Advice to Management

I do not think I have enough experience on management to comment here
