Eye-opening experience
Other (US) | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The best aspects of the internship were the great people I worked with who were also friendly and respectful.


Downers

The activities that I had to do weren't necessarily the activities that I wanted to do but I did complete them exceptionally and they taught me many skills that will help me in future positions.


Advice to Potential Interns

Practice multiple times before going out on an interview. The interview that I had was done in a group and we were all competing for a position.


Advice to Management

Give interns more team work activities. Being able to work in a team shows your ability to communicate respectfully around others.

Protect the internet with cutting edge technology and work with some incredibly knowledgable people.
Herndon, VA | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Learning how to identify and handle incidents was the most interesting part of the internship for me.


Downers

That I wasn't able to work in the queue like a full time analyst but due to time restrictions this was entirely understandable.


Advice to Potential Interns

This job is amazing if you are interested in seeing how a managed security provider protects hundreds of large companies world-wide from cyber threats.


Advice to Management

Not much, possibly come up with more hands on things to work on.

Yes

Awesome summer experience filled with learning
Boston, MA | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN

The experience seeing what an actual software engineering position is away from the classroom


Downers

I wish I could've been taught a little more initially, but i understand their time is more valuable then mine


Advice to Potential Interns

Symantec treats every employee they have like gold - i love the company


Advice to Management

We really should have our own building in the Waltham location, so we can be more like a smaller Mountain View branch. A better cafe is a must too

Wonderful experience interning at Symantec
Saint Paul, MN | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Welcoming environment, project variety, real-world experience


Downers

Working 40-hour weeks but earning no PTO


Advice to Potential Interns

Symantec in Roseville is an excellent place to work, with a good work/life balance and plenty of opportunities to meet coworkers and network (and get free food!). The work is interesting, and I felt like a valued part of the team.


Advice to Management

Especially for lengthy internships (longer than just the summer), it would be nice to earn at least some vacation to take a day off here or there.
