It is my third coop term. Great work-life balance. Mentorship needs to be improved. Projects are quite challenging. You need to take more initiative to really make an impact.

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.

There are definitely some organizational pains that come with a company trying to grow. They were aggressively hiring full-time employees when I worked there for both the San Francisco and Waterloo offices, as there was an extra signing bonus for new employees going on. However, at least 5 full-time employees left the company or were fired in the 4 months I was there, so take that how you will. Most of their old monolithic application is still written in PHP, with most of the newer services written in Ruby on Rails and Golang. Mobile applications are written in Java (Android) and Objective C (iOS), although they’re planning on rewriting in Swift at some point. Some custom firmware and other things are written in C, although for the most… Show More

You'll get a lot of responsibility and make your own features, but the culture is a bit dull. Not very diverse and not really any company events.

Was given a lot of responsibility and room to grow. However, the company culture seems to be very superficial. The company undeniably has very good perks for Waterloo, free lunch, breakfast, monthly events, etc... But that does not make up for some of the more serious issues with TextNow. The company seems to have a large problem with work life balance, as a co-op this probably won't affect you too much, however be prepared to see some very stressed, overworked full time employees. There's also a lot of politics for a company of this size (~100 people) and the management team seems to push for things like unlimited vacation as a means to make up for the lack of work life balance. But as most people know in practice that does not lead to… Show More

A quickly changing company going through a lot of growth. When I was interning, teams were still being figured out, but working at such a company will provide a neat learning experience. Would recommend at least one internship in this kind of environment. People at TextNow were super friendly, and the work that they were doing was interesting and is becoming more interesting term after term as they face new challenges.

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.

Really team dependent. I was in a newly formed team so every person on my team had a lot of responsibilities. We were in charge of a lot of things so we learned a lot too. Our team had a start-up culture while being backed by a large corporation like IBM.

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

Facebook has a great culture and everyone treats each other really well. Team-matching does a pretty good job finding a team that would interest you. With all big companies, there is a concern with the amount of impact one can have, but aside from that, I can't think of any other cons.

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!

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)

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

A pretty fast-paced co-op, but that was very enjoyable for me. Was given a lot of freedom as to what I wanted to work on and how I managed my time. Also I was able to switch to more of a back end role in the latter half of the co-op which was great! Would definitely recommend TextNow; one of the better places to work for in the KW area.
