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.

My experience with Bloomberg in NY was great. You get provided housing in full ($2000 USD/month value) in Manhattan (30 minute walk, 10 minute subway), along with a $2000 USD lump sum pay for relocation. The internship program itself comes with tons of events including weekly tech talks, picnic (they rent an island), data centre tour and hackathons (overnight, 16 hr overtime) and algorithm contests. Of course, you get access to Bloomberg’s pantry, unlimited museum pass and other perks like breakfast and dinner. The building is fantastic, especially the views of uptown in Lex and downtown view in Park. Work-wise the projects were very interesting, you get to pick what you’re interested in and they try their best to do something you love.… Show More

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.

Worked in 2017 after previously working at the New York office. Company culture was consistent. I felt that the projects were meaningful and enjoyed working on my team. London did not have as many intern events as NYC, though there isn't as much of an intern program in London so this is to be expected. Having 8 vacation days was nice and allowed me to take extended trips and long weekends.

* Amazing team. My manager did bi-weekly one-on-ones where he asked me for feedback, mentored me on leadership, helped me solve problems related to my work, and pushed me to grow as an engineer. My mentor was really supportive as well and was always willing to help me. * Great social life. Team went after work weekly, plus we did lunch together every day. * Project was perfectly scoped for 4 months and interesting. Got to see it deployed & used before I left. * Annoying restrictions on doing things with the Bloomberg platform because I was an intern (like deploying my code) * This is Bloomberg so lots of very business-y meetings that are long and ... business-y. * Project was planned/designed before I started my internship, so that left… Show More

I worked on one of Bloomberg's ML teams during summer 2015; the work itself was challenging, and I got to work on and learn about infrastructure/data science at a big-data scale. My mentor and team were very available and knowledgable, and were happy to answer questions when I needed help. New York is a blast! They provide corp-housing, which is a huge plus in terms of bonding with other interns and exploring Manhattan.

I interned here during the Winter of 2014 and had myself a pretty good time. Work: The project I was put on was to create a tool to compare how effective our trade pricing algorithms were. Overall, I thought the project was dry and not all that challenging. The project I was put on was purely done in C++, using primarily Bloomberg specific libraries and tools, so it wasn't exactly exciting either. What made work fun though was a great team, a fun group of alumni, and the crazy interns that I got to live with. The city: New York City has a certain charm on it, and it hooked me in. Getting around the city is incredibly easy and it's very happening. From great shows to even greater food, there's always something new.

Salary was actually $43 USD. I was given a full fledged project to work on -- so a large part of my good experience was my team and the project they gave me. Other than that summer internships are the best given that they hire 200+ interns from all across the US so there are more people to meet. Great experience overall.

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.

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
