I was given the opportunity to work on projects that i was most interested in. The team was extremely helpful and the work/life balance is awesome. I've interned with Facebook for 2 terms and both terms have been very exciting.

Worked there two terms now. Both on different teams as a EE intern. The most important thing I find interning at Apple is finding a good team/mentorship. I was lucky enough to have amazing mentors and team during my time there which led me to learn a ton of things. Lots of work to be done, so had some late nights, but no-one forcing you to stay late. Only stayed late because I really enjoyed the work. Tip : Remember Apple is a huge company 40,000 + employees.. Every team is different, so when you are interviewing ensure there is proper mentorship and good work. For hardware, I say its a really good place if not the best, but for software I'm sure there are other companies that are much better.

DISCLAIMER: I had many friends who worked at Apple and really loved it, I was just incredibly unlucky with my project and team. - I worked in the Hardware Tech org, the majority of which was situated in satellite buildings around Apple Park, but not in it. Instead of working in a bright, modern, open office, I worked in a claustrophobic, depressing sea of cubicles. - The manager who hired me was transferred right before I arrived, which meant no-one on the team really knew what I was supposed to be doing. I eventually worked on a project spearheaded by the team's former manager, but without him giving guidance and direction, the project stalled, taking nearly the entire term to finish. - My team was incredibly antisocial, not just with… Show More

The projects were innovative and challenging, as the team does a lot of R&D work. Work life balance is manageable, although there is not much to do without access to a car.

Worked there summer of 2018 when it was under the banner of Oath, got to meet and work with really amazing people. Although there is some instability with the company due to all the restructuring, culture is very collaborative and freeing (at least in my experience).

The toronto office is great! I got to work with a lot of nice people. Particularly my manager and mentor Blake was very helpful. He gave me a lot of room of freedom that I can decide what projects I want to work on. The job itself is very hard to explain. It's kinda a combination of later stage pm and marketing on a scale (through the sales pods). Food can be a surprise sometimes. I've had alligator and rabbit there. Gym and wellness expense are subsidized as well and you get $300 something everything on ad credits. Overall it's a very cool experience.

I co-oped for Facebook twice: first time in Summer 2015, and second time at Instagram in Winter 2016. Both times I had excellent mentors, and who coached me during my term. Facebook really does not differentiate between interns and full-times, so the work you get to do will be real and meaningful. They are also really flexible, and try to accommodate to your interests; I was initially assigned an Android project, since my resume has a lot of Android experience. However, I really wanted to learn something new, and my manager was able to accommodate to my learning needs. The corporate housing is luxurious and EVERYTHING at work is free!!!!! (Food, tech, snacks, etc...) The team and managers really try to ensure you have a good work-life… Show More

I worked here during Summer 2015. I was assigned a team, but they are very flexible with regards to what you actually end up working on. For instance, I was put on a back-end team, but ended up doing mostly Javascript because of the project I chose. Everyone around you is pretty eager to help and support you learn. There's generally a lot of cool things to work on, but because of sheer size of the company, it may be difficult to make meaningful impact. Overall, Facebook has amazing perks and is great place to grow and learn as a software engineer.

I had a great time as an intern at Facebook 1) Work: This varies heavily with team, but you do have some say in what team you're assigned. In the Seattle office the bigger teams are Ads and Messenger. I was on Ads and the work was impactful and challenging but fun. Facebook also has amazing internal tooling, processes, and support; meaning we get to spend more time on meaningful work rather than dealing with trivial setup and issues. 2) Perks: FB definitely has one of the best perks among the top tech companies. There's the usual free food, mini kitchens, pingpong/foosball, and gyms, but FB also provides free housing on top of your salary, professional laundry on-site (includes dry cleaning), bike stipend, wellness stipend, a phone with… Show More

I worked at Facebook in Fall 2016 on Infrastructure. Work-wise, Facebook's internship program is very well structured; they really focus on providing mentorship and tools that allow developers to come in and ramp up quickly. I had a great relationship with my team and a lot of respect for both my team manager and internship manager; they were all very keen to make sure I was enjoying my time there. Dev experience is very polished, I was never blocked on infrastructure not being available for me to work on my project. Benefits are probably top-tier in comparison to other tech-internships, you also really bond with other interns outside of work. This is a great choice!

Interned with Yahoo Finance. Great mentorship, learned a lot of new technologies and given impactful projects featured on the homepage. Manager was very involved with making sure I was working on things I found interesting and overall had a great time with great perks. Corporate culture could be improved - team was a bit boring but all in all a fantastic learning experience.

I love - love - loved my internship at Apple as a Software Engineering Intern. The work I did was developing a core production product where I was able to make valuable contributions to developing services that helped complete goals for the team that I was on. I think in terms of pay they have recently made significant increases? At least for the Siri organization. I was paid $45 USD/hour with the chance to do basically unlimited overtime (1.5x hourly). Mentorship was excellent - of course this is team based - my mentor constantly checked up on me to ensure that we were in sync and that I was having an enjoyable experience. People were incredibly friendly in my organization. Although you have to pay for lunch (dinner is free), the food… Show More

I interned here as a SWE intern. Work was really good and my team gave me a lot of autonomy on what I could work on. The company is huge but every org works pretty autonomously so I didn't feel like I was doing unimpactful work. Everything is extremely team dependent. Apple Park is one of the most beautiful buildings I've seen in my entire life and they've recently opened it to all Apple employees. The facilities, gyms, etc are all top notch and in pristine condition and exactly what you would expect from Apple. From my experience, at Apple you'll get a shared private office with another co-worker. IMO it's way better than the crowded open office layout all the other tech companies have. YMMV though, some (unlucky) people have… Show More

Mentorship was almost non-existent and the project was useless. Most intern software projects are demos / proof of concept work that never see the light of day. If you are lucky, you might work on some small features that actually ship. Company culture is really strange, everyone is super secretive about what they are working on. The company is also extremely stingy with perks, offering no free breakfast/dinner and free dinner only if you stay past 7 PM. Overall, I think that Apple is a good company to work at if you are into hardware or are a massive fan boy. If you are into software, there are better companies out there.

I worked as an intern in the winter term in 2017. The culture was surprisingly awesome for such a huge company - everyone is friendly and the company is very open. The perks were top notch - housing was luxurious, buffet of great food every day for three meals, fitness stipend and snacks. I had the opportunity to work on some pretty impactful projects and was treated like a full-time employee. At work, you're surrounded by really smart, driven people. There's excellent infrastructures and tools in place for developers.

I interned at Yelp in Winter 2018. Yelp has a really solid internship program. They really try to give the interns the best experience with weekly events. It helps to have a smaller intern group in the Winter term because you can really get to know everyone. In terms of actual work, I mainly got worked on their backend APIs and business logic. Nothing too challenging, but still pretty fun. The mentorship I got from my mentor was exceptional, but this is very team/mentor dependent. The culture at Yelp is definitely one of its major perks. Everyone is super nice and chill, no overtime expectations. The salary was 8000$/month with a 1500$ monthly stipend.

It really depends on your team. I didn't feel connected to my team at all, and they didn't seem that interested in me or what I was doing. The test environment broke all the time and people didn't care. I was stuck with an underpowered dev server for the first 2 months which made everything very slow and flaky. Sometimes it took weeks for people to review my code. When planning my project, one teammate kept harping on the fact that it's "an intern project" and "Maybe he doesn't know how to code." My manager was not a good mentor. One of the first things he told me was how his previous intern's project is no longer used in production at all. He often acted as if things could be done in a "few hours" or "a day" when it would obviously be… Show More

The work is meaningful, although it is very busy and you need to be very self motivated to get through different issues. Work life balance is alright.
