Boston, MA | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

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

Would You Recommend

A good place to learn good software practice and real-world solutions to common software challenges!

4.6 of 5 stars

Mountain View, CA | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Working with a great team on a great product, learning a lot, ownership of projects, knowing the impact of your work on the team.

Downers

Small cubical space (although this varies, because other interns have big offices), would've liked free snacks/lunches/drinks

Advice to Potential Interns

It's a great company to work for, everyone is extremely courteous and it's a great workplace environment.

Advice to Management

Maybe a little higher pay, although it's definitely competitive with other places.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Overall a great experience in which I learned a lot about MSS and incident handling. Great environment to work in.

4.6 of 5 stars

Herndon, VA | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

-The people

-Team building events

-Learning the system/workflow

-Being able to positively contribute to the team

Downers

-Not allowed to get completely hands on like full-time analysts

Advice to Potential Interns

If you have an interest in incident detection / analysis this is a great place to start. You have great visibility into the system and how it works and get to see real-world attacks of all kinds on a daily basis. Corporate culture is much more relaxed and trusting than I thought it would be. You will work with a small/medium sized team and get to know everyone well.

Advice to Management

No issues with hours or compensation or anything like that. There is a bit of a steep learning curve when you are first hired and it seems a bit overwhelming at first. I found hands-on and mentor training to be the most valuable to getting up to speed.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Advice to Potential Interns

Get prepared with your skill sets and really contribut to the position you are in. Don't just takt is as a summer camp and participate every unnecassary events.

Advice to Management

At the end of the intern program, it's good to have every intern to introduce their job and accomplishment to the other interns. Becaus some people may find that what they really want to/apt to do is another position.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Interned at a very difficult yet pivotal time for the company, such a rare opportunity to contribute to the company's transformation

4.7 of 5 stars

Mountain View, CA | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The hands-on learning opportunities they provided from attending meetings, facilitating meetings, to presenting at a worldwide conference.

Downers

First intern to start in my department on a newly formed team. I and the others established the structure for interns in the future.

Advice to Potential Interns

take the initiative to keep yourself busy, your managers are busy and don't enjoy micromanaging interns as part of their day-to-day operations. They will provide the guidance to be productive while allowing you the freedom to be creative!

Advice to Management

On-boarding process (e.g. laptop, NPV, lots of accounts and passwords)

Would You Recommend

Yes

Slow start, but great finish. Loved the experience, want to do it again
