    Pros

    Interns are really taken care of, pampered almost. Loads of networking and learning opportunities. Interns are also encouraged to take part in activities outside work, like the IdeaQuest competition and community service.

    Cons

    Some interns face issues with being put in a team of their choice. Experience can depend on the mentor and manager you get.

    Pros

    Work culture, team work and lack of bossism. The best is tried to keep you entertained and maximum efforts put in comforting the employee

    Cons

    Gender ratio is highly skewed. San Diego office seems to be dominating the spree in most departments.

    Pros

    Excellent housing and compensation package provided to interns. Very good mentoring program - never felt like I was being pressured, but still was able to contribute to 'real' work. Good program for moving into a full-time position.

    Cons

    The lion's share of the company's official attention appears to be given to groups that work at the main San Diego campus. Groups that are in other locations (even if still in San Diego) can feel a bit isolated.
