Informative, Valuable, and Practical Internship Experience


Uppers

The internship really prepared me in what to expect when working after graduation. I learned many things from my project managers, colleagues, and the project itself. There was a very nice atmosphere with all of the employees, and everyone was willing to help you if you needed any. Also, we were given the opportunity to take a class and the exam for a Security+ certification.


Downers

It would have been nice to be able to be more slective with your project and the subject matter you will be working on.


Advice to Potential Interns

Look for a company that really intrugues you and you will enjoy working for. Also, where ever you get an intership at, work your hardest and get the most from your experience because there is a lot you can learn.

Internship program focused on creating full-time prepared employees


Uppers

Good team work. Access to leadership of all levels. Good social setup. Interesting projects. Helpful experts. Real work, as opposed to busy work. Prepares students for actual full-time opportunities


Downers

Really wasn't anything I disliked about my internship


Advice to Potential Interns

This is one of the few internship programs that provides real world work that could be applied to clients, and treats interns as real employees. Projects are given on a "this is the goal, get to it how you feel best" bases, as opposed to a step-by-step hand-holding terms. Leadership is very able and willing to help, and social gatherings are common.


Advice to Management

Pull interns out of their comfort zone a little. Require large presentations and proposal setups, as well as forcing interns to act as an organized team.


Would You Recommend

Yes

Researching and mitigating threats in mobile security


Uppers

Emphasis on training and self management while still working as a team


Downers

The team could have been better organized


Advice to Potential Interns

Interns should be prepared to learn and to direct their own research. Not all problems are tractable and interns need to know how to investigate problems that may not have a solution. An internship is a fantastic way to get your foot into the door of the security industry, which tends to ignore candidates who do not have prior work experience


Advice to Management

The firm could be more proactive in setting up after work activities for the interns.


Would You Recommend

Yes

Booz Allen introduced me to the real world and tested my abilities.


Uppers

Culture, people, working style, projects, and the many locations were the best parts of the internship.


Downers

Since most of my project managers were away on business, there was little direction.


Advice to Potential Interns

It would be good to k ow that you must keep busy and find work to do if you find yourself stuck or lost.


Advice to Management

I would like to make sure that I know exactly what to work on everyday rather than have to find people to explain when I don't know what to do.


Would You Recommend

Yes

A ten week evaluation of my work abilities in a true working environment


Uppers

The opportunity to work on software with a real world impact, and the experience of working with full-time employees to understand the culture and skills required.


Downers

Minimal flexibility in project choice


Advice to Potential Interns

Treat the internship period as a 10-week paid job interview. You're not in the door yet, this is your chance to make the necessary impact to open up a world of opportunities.


Advice to Management

Offer close support, as needed, to your interns as they are young, inexperienced, and likely nervous about their ability to perform. With proper guidance many interns will have the opportunity to excel at their greatest potential.
