Sometimes things can be so fast-paced you feel as if you don’t have the time to do the deep-dives you’d prefer to do.

Electrical Engineering Intern

June - September 2017 • Sunnyvale, CA

What I liked

The company works on really incredible technology, and is at the forefront of the field (robotic surgery). Coworkers (both other interns and full-timers) were really friendly and great to work with. As an intern, I was given a lot of independence and trust, but also received as much support as I needed.

What I wish was different

Honestly not much. Compensation could have been a little higher, but the experience was overall very good.

Advice

If you work here, you'll probably start here completely lost. By the end of the internship you will marvel at how much you've learned and accomplished. Don't get discouraged at the outset, and do ask for help.
