"Fortinet is a great place to work for interns and recent college grads looking to get a foothold in corporate finance. The finance team here isn't as big as some of the larger corporations; which gives a unique opportunity to work closely with upper management on projects. Also, the management at Fortinet is helpful and fun to work with; I always felt comfortable asking them questions. My favorite aspect from interning at Fortinet was the freedom of working on my own projects. You learn a lot of useful financial and Excel knowledge because you have to figure out how to do your work without relying on others." Justin Hammergren, Cal Poly, 2011

"I chose Fortinet because I am impressed and inspired by their focus on achieving excellence, through innovation and superior leadership." Alicia Castillo, Accounting Intern, San Jose State University
