Electrical Engineer Intern

July 2018 • Bothell, WA

What I liked

This company does everything to make sure you feel welcomed and supported while working there as an intern. We have the option to learn about many different disciplines (EE, ME, Optics, Materials, QA), which helped me decide what I wanted to pursue. Often, they hold different speakers during lunch so that we can learn what their day-to-day jobs are like, how they got to where they are, etc. This helps expose us to different types of jobs and what the path to a career looks like. Each week, there are meetings with your manager to talk through your tasks, your workload, and overall how your experience is going. There are also many opportunities to participate in social events to get closer to the other interns. Over the course of the entire summer, the interns were placed on teams for a program-long project. We learned the process of engineering project proposals, and had to present in front of a "customer". Overall, this company offers many opportunities for learning about what you want to do, how to do it, and generally how to be successful as an engineer/physicist/scientist for a company.

What I wish was different

There are no aspects of the internship that I wish were different. The only things I find myself wishing were different are how I spent my time. I always wish that I had asked more questions, engaged more, learned more on my own, etc. Ultimately, an internship experience is what you make of it. The only thing that I wish was different about the program is the location--but that's a personal desire of mine to experience work outside of WA.

Advice

If you are starting an internship, or have been at one previously, do not hesitate to ask questions! In the end, by asking questions you are helping yourself learn more. Often, I am faced with tasks that I may not know how to complete individually. I can start by searching online to learn on my own, but it is crucial to ask for help from your coworkers, or possibly someone you don't work with directly but who may be a subject matter expert on that topic. Additionally, if you feel overworked or underworked, talk with your manager. They are there to help you, and you do not want to feel like you're getting behind or you're not learning anything.

Corporate Financial Analyst

March 2019 • Orlando, FL

What I liked

Highly professional environment that is constantly looking to push your limits. Great room to grow and advance with the company. Great benefits and work schedule.

What I wish was different

The training and learning process is highly dependent on yourself. This unstructured approach leaves many new students with ambiguity in performance.

Advice

If you're looking to work here it's a great place to grow and learn if your self-motivated. It is highly encouraged that you start your employment with a good first step and explain to your manager that you'll need a little guidance starting out.

Software Engineering Intern

May - August 2019 • Fort Worth, TX

What I liked

They really worked around my schedule. The work I did was meaningful and used by the company.

What I wish was different

Unfortunately, my family took two vacations this summer so I was away from my internship for about 3 weeks. This was over two separate times, so I never got any large projects because I was unable to be there for the entirety of the projects.

Advice

Make friends with your coworkers. Getting along with those around you, whether they’re also college aged or almost retirement age, makes the entire experience a lot more enjoyable.

Program Management Intern

May 2019 • Stratford, CT

What I liked

They did a great job of integrating me with the team right away and making a contributing member. By the end of the summer I was leading meetings with the customer and presenting to high level Lockheed Martin Execs.

What I wish was different

There is a good amount of jargon and technical details that you may not totally understand going in to this internship, but you will pick up on fast.

Advice

The biggest thing i took away was to always be flexible and to (almost) always say yes when asked if you would be able to help someone out. I had some really cool experiences because I agreed to help out people who were not necessarily on my direct team.
