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.

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.

Worked on biz.yelp.com full stack web development. The intern program is tbh one of the best I've ever seen. Everyone is super fun, they know exactly how to treat interns from fun events, to making sure your project is done at the end of the term. I got a bit unlucky put on my own project doing front-end which I found out I didn't like, so work-wise it was a bit of a rough ride. Still, from my mentor to the PM to the team, everyone was really nice and my coding style got infinitely better, so it was a good experience.

The internship experience was great, it was my first time in San Francisco and the YIP (Yelp Intern Program) offered a ton of fun events to get to know the other interns. As well, they offered plenty of reimbursement and support to find housing. The work life balance was great, there were smash nights on Monday, board game night on Wednesday and occasionally movie or trivia nights will pop up. The work I did was primarily Android, I was one of 4 people on the Core Android team so it was extremely fulfilling.

Probably the most fun you can get from an internship. The Yelp Internship Program (YIP) is awesome, and they really help you explore the city/surrounding areas by providing events and weekend ideas. Perks are pretty standard: snacks + drinks, foosball, pool, free in-house coffeeshop (especially the chai latte). The work is very team-dependent. On Search, you work on pretty cool projects that cover a lot of different disciplines. Some of the other interns didn't like their projects too much, and a lot of people were placed on a different team than what the recruiter said. Mentors are hit-or-miss, but there's definitely a lot of opportunity to learn.

Interned Fall 2016. Salary was roughly $3500 per two weeks plus $1500 housing per month. Perks include but are not limited to: frequent intern events, quarterly offsites, and lunch on Fridays. Part of your experience depends on the team you're on and the project you're assigned. I believe your second round interviewers will recommend teams for you to be placed on so be sure to let them know where your interests lie and what kind of work you want to do. Some aspects that don't depend on team and project are the work-life balance and company culture. The vast majority of engineers, PMs, and managers I interacted with were very smart and approachable. Seize opportunities to check out what other teams are doing, through yelp-beans, show and… Show More

Let me start off by saying the Yelp Intern Program (YIP) is really awesome. The recruiters do a great job showing you around town and making sure you have a good time. My mentor was just alright but I've heard of others having really cool mentors. Unfortunately I didn't learn too much from my mentor. Work-life balance was okay too, most people regularly work over 8 hours but nothing ridiculous. There's a lot of clubs (board games, sports etc) and people are generally friendly. I really didn't find the work that meaningful and I'm not very optimistic about Yelp's future as a company. But there is some really awesome stuff being done in their data science and infra teams. If Yelp offers you your first time in the Bay Area, definitely take… Show More

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!

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 was on iOS team, holy **** everyone on my team is super nice and super smart. They are just amazing people to talk to. The work was super meaningful, I was able to fully ship 2 major features to AppStore in the span of 4 Months. Asana really cares about your passion and make sure you enjoy what you work on. Asana has no doubt the best mentorship program for interns in the Bay Area. 11/10 would recommend. (I am a foodie, and Asana has one of the best in-house chefs, food is 12/10)

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.

YIP (Yelp Intern Program) is awesome and their dedicated team for handling interns is the best I've come across. They host weekly events that allow you to really get to know the other interns and explore San Francisco which is honestly a major plus. That being said, the work depends on what team you end up on and what projects are available. I personally did not get much mentorship and worked independently on an intern project for most of the term which does not give me a good feel of what it is like to be a full-time at Yelp. However, some of the other interns had good experiences and caring mentors, so that is not to say you will not find any meaningful work. Culture-wise, Yelp is great and all the people I met and interacted with… Show More

Summer 2017 (May - Aug) Highlight: They really care about your mentorship and you as a person in all aspects! I worked on the iOS team without any previous experience in mobile at all, and everyone I spoke to made it very clear that doing something that you don't have experience in is completely and totally fine - and actually encouraged. In theory a lot of companies do the same, but in practice very few actually do that. Each person I spoke to have some crazy background story, like they were homeless for a few months and then biked across the USA for charity or studied food tasting science and then decided to go into data science. That made being there really interesting, and the company tries to be very transparent and very human all… Show More

I was on the stability and security team. My internship was centered around ZooKeeper mostly, but I had a lot of freedom in choosing the direction that I take the project. I was given the option to change projects and even teams in the middle of my internship if I wanted to try something else. The work-life balance was the best that I have seen and people often stayed after work to play games or hang out. Even though I was the only intern for a part of the time I was there, everyone made me feel very welcome and treated me as a full-time employee. They even let me shadow couple interviews and ask a question on one. I still keep in touch with the people on my team and visit the office whenever I am in town.

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
