    A very good company to intern especially for electrical/electronic engineer

    ProsNice facilities like accomodation,food,transportation available. People are quite friendly. Most of the managers are nice and easy to work with. Flexible work schedule,regular team outings for interns.

    Good summer internship

    Awesome HR and accommodations, but the work could have been more interesting.

    Interim Engineering Intern (Former Employee) San Diego, CA (US)

    ProsGood work life balance, competitive pay, San Diego is beautiful, brilliant coworkers, housing and relocation was completely covered, R&D projects are very good, stable job outlook, HR (Campus Team) is by far the best of any company I've ever dealt with, great mentorship, executive speaker series, and they even held an intern hackathon

    ConsWe didn't use agile software development, so there was very little flexibility or change as your project progressed. I had a project that was almost identical to the project that I had done the summer before at a different company. Projects are assigned based on what you have a proven track record of doing, and not what you want to do in the future. Shuttles go in loops around campus, and can take 15+ minutes to pick you up if you don't time it right. You could get banned from using the shuttles if you abuse them by taking them to an office that's closer to a mall/food court.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWork across divisions and teams more.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
