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.

I worked there for my first co-op term in 2016, and I loved working there. It has a really good culture/environment with transparency. It is a fast growing company, and the office is located west of Toronto. They have a really nice office stocked with food and perks. However, I did not find my main tasks that rewarding because of the repetitive work. But you can definitely get involved in other projects outside of your department if you are interested. Highly recommend this company!

I interned at Flipp in Fall 2016. As a Data Quality Analyst, I could have been assigned to any of the teams in the Operations department. Depending on the team, the responsibilities would differ, but in one form or another it would be some sort of quality assurance. I found the nature of my work to be a lot more repetitive than challenging, but the work that was assigned was also reasonable for a normal work day. That being said, the culture in Flipp is very good. I found it very easy to interact with people from other teams and I found my team very willing to let me explore new ways to do things (my team was still relatively new). In addition, each intern is assigned a mentor in their team whom they are usually able to meet with… Show More

Had a great time at Flipp. The people are really friendly and make an effort to make you feel part of the team. They have monthly company events that are lots of fun and free lunches on Friday, they also give you a Goodlife membership for the term and TTC passes. The work they give you is pretty interesting, although that depends on the team. You'll have an opportunity to work along full time employees and take on as much work as you feel comfortable with. Overall their expectations are pretty reasonable and they seem like they really want to see you grow. I would really recommend working there!

I worked at Google Kirkland office during summer term of 2016. I was assigned to the Cloud team. It was a great experience. My host and my team were very helpful and flexible. They gave me constructive feedback and helped me improve and acquire new skills in software development.

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.

Worked on Google Research doing machine learning on my own project. Learned a ton and the team was really smart, I was playing catch-up the whole term. Culture is great, so even though I was the youngest person in the room by about 25 years we all go along great and imo Google does literally everything to make working there perfect. I'd highly recommend joining a club, as bjj during lunch was a lot of fun. I think the well-known perks are overrated (food, laundry) and the biggest perk is the communities inside Google that are super friendly and inviting. Didn't have that many intern events but I was also not there in the summer, so go in the summer if you can!

I worked there during Summer 2016. The company doesn't provide corporate housing, so interns have to find their own, but there is an extensive shuttle network and they also provide a bike for the duration of the internship.

Did an internship in Winter 2015 on the main campus and it was probably the best internship experience I've had. Lots of perks and you're around really great people that want you to make the most of your internship experience. Would definitely recommend checking it out!

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 while this was still at the old office location in the Tannery. The facilities back then were great, so I'm sure the new office is amazing. This was my first taste at the "tech life" i.e. free food, and I'm pretty sure I gained at least 5 lbs by the end. In addition to salary, you get a housing and transportation stipend. As for work, the project I was on ended up being high priority for launch in that quarter, and so it was a great experience to work with a bunch of other engineers on the team and to launch it to real users in the end. Everybody is super smart and super friendly - a great internship experience overall.

At Google, you can be extremely productive because everything actually "works" as intended. It's true that the impact is diluted at such a big company, but on the bright side, it's extremely flexible to switch to a team that interests you.

I worked there from January to April 2016 and had a fantastic experience. Software consulting is very fast paced, so I was forced to learn mobile development quite quickly, but not without support from senior developers. It was great to see a product end-to-end in only a few months, very rewarding experience. We often had team lunches to increase bonding.
