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.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Ah, um, That's a hard question, you know?

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.

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

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

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

Would You Recommend

This internship provided practical, real-world experience, decent pay in a flexible environment, and valuable team building skills.

Los Angeles, CA | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Flexible hours, opportunities to get involved to increase visibility for hire, nice perks (good food, free coffee, gym). Relaxed environment, but on a driven and supportive team. Respectful and caring to all employees and treat interns like full-timers.

Downers

Less pay and perks than forerunners of the computer science industry (Google, Microsoft, etc.). Not much face time with management (could be good or bad based on personal preferences).

Advice to Potential Interns

As my first job in the industry (computer science), this internship was a dream for me, and if the pay is in your desired range, they have everything you might want. I felt like I was a trusted and respected part of the team, enough to be treated as any other full-time employee. Work moved at the pace I was going, and I was put on some great projects.

Advice to Management

I am having an extremely enjoyable time at Symantec, and I attribute that largely to the respect, trust, and patience management puts into their interns. Please continue to do such a great job in making me feel like a meaningful part of the team. The only criticism I would have is that some of management seemed either too distant or busy to get much face-time to sit down and talk about job prospects or tricks and tips of working at the company; this was not a big deal, as I'd rather be self-guided and working, but I think this would make the job a lot more personable.
