The work was really dependent on the team you were put on and if the manager had anything in mind for you. Unfortunately, the work I did there was really lacking purpose and although I continually requested for more work, I felt like I spent the term doing work that didn't really have an impact. However! The company overall has a really great culture: very young age group (for the most part) and so many perks! Just make sure you know exactly what you'd be doing in your role prior to accepting the job - the company itself is honestly great though.

Company culture is great. There are 4 co-ops (2 fullstack, 1 mobile, 1 designer) each term. You get to take complete ownership with other co-ops and build projects from the ground up and learn pretty much whatever tech you want. The pay is fixed at $1100 which is a really good opportunities for lower years to earn more.

Team Viking was an awesome team! The team is extremely welcoming, and experienced. You get to work on cool distributed systems. One caveat is the team is R&D so your work might not actually see production. A great first work term!

Fun start-up like culture at zero gravity labs. A lot of the internship has to do with using new technologies to explore possible implementations. There's a lot of free food and co-op events. They also give you 20% time to work on any side-project. You also get a lot of perks like Uber, Netflix and ritual credits. The salary is standardized for waterloo coops regardless of term. (Unless you're a master's student)

Working at Communitech is great. It's probably been the most enjoyable co-op term in terms of the environment. Being the only mobile developer, you're kind of alone which could be both a good and bad thing. If you've done any sort mobile development before and you're comfortable holding your own then you get to take full control of the mobile projects. On the other hand, there isn't too much mentorship on the mobile side. We had more web apps to work on in my term so I learned a great deal about web development which was great. This openness is not just for the mobile developer but we had a full-stack developer work on an Android project so there is lots of freedom to work with technologies you're interested in learning about.

This was my second year as an intern. I started as part of the Explore Program, chose to come back as a PM and will be returning this upcoming summer for my 3rd internship. I know others have talked about unenthusiastic teams, bad mentors, and bad managers. I understand. My first summer, my manager was horrible, chastising my abilities and my work. I expressed my concerns with my mentor, and thankfully, she was able to help me. The CEO said "people don't quit companies, they quit teams", which struck a chord with me. I decided to return the next summer as part of a different team. (I also found out that summer that my previous manager had been moved down to the position of Individual Contributor) I was also able to connect with someone… Show More

Mentorship - Smart, kind, helpful mentors and teammates Work/life Balance - If project is scoped correctly and you're qualified for the job, then this is 5/5. Meaningful Work - I worked on Amazon Echo during the term it was launched for Beta (invite-only). Being part of the launch and seeing all those unboxing videos and the positive feedback of the community and customers with your team is an experience I'll always cherish. Perks - Really nice housing stipend. Downtown City life. When you get a return offer, you can choose any team and any location to work on (they have offices in pretty much every major city in the world. Seattle, New York, Toronto, Vancouver, SF, and so on)

Mentorship - This is my third internship at Amazon so the mentorship was minimal as I was driving the project by myself. Teammates are chill and helpful if you have questions. I've never come across any smug arrogant engineer or manager working at 3 different teams and locations and most of the people are chill and nice. Work/life Balance - This depends on how qualified you are for the job tbh. Most of the time, teams will give you an independent project that is scoped correctly. And if it wasn't, then well, the complexity of the project and any mis-scope is taken into account when deciding upon giving you a return offer. Meaningful Work - Amazon is really big on Ownership. I sort of worked like a 1-man-startup to deliver my project.… Show More

The Microsoft intern program is well-organized with lots of special intern events (eg game nights, Mariners games, hiking etc). You get lots of perks with your salary including subsidized corporate housing, gym membership, and lots of gifts/swag. Microsoft is large and fragmented, so your experience will depend a lot on your specific team and manager. Overall, the people are smart, the culture is laid back, and the company mood is optimistic. There is lots of interesting stuff going on at Microsoft, but 4 months is not enough to ramp up and fully take advantage of everything. Your internship will likely be project-based and you shouldn't expect your intern project to be something cutting-edge. Return offers are relatively easy to get… Show More

I had an absolutely amazing time for my SDE internship at Amazon in summer 2016. My mentor and manager were both really great at making me enjoy my time there and getting me to work better - I had daily talks with my mentor as well as weekly one-on-ones with my manager. Interns typically get to work on their own project over the summer, which they present to other teams at the end of the term. You're expected to take a lot of ownership over your project during the time, so you get to make a lot of the decisions when it comes to your design and deliverables. My project was scoped out well, so that I knew what I had to do at what time. The project was fun and challenging while still manageable. There's a lot of other interns around and… Show More

The quality of the internship really depends on these three things: - The team you end up on - The manager/mentor/lead you end up having - The project you get assigned These things can vary greatly and I lucked out with fantastic team, manager/mentor/lead, and project. When interviewing, make sure to make it perfectly clear what your interests are. They'll try their best to put you on something that matches your interests.

The Office team in Microsoft Japan worked on docs.com and Office Lens while I was there. You'll be assigned an onboarding project to start off with, and then move onto a main project to finish off the term with. If you finish your main project quickly, then you'll probably end up working on regular engineering tasks. The projects were in different fields, and a couple of them were quite interesting (involved NLP, OpenGL), but a lot of them were fairly standard web/mobile-development feature tasks. Obviously, these choices will vary each term. Hours aren't particularly long, but they're pretty offset from the usual business hours (most people came in at 11 and left after 7). You're not pressured to commit to 11-7 at all though. Your… Show More

Worked at Microsoft in summer 2017. Despite not being at the HQ in Redmond, there were intern events every week or two (paintball, baseball games, cruise, etc), and we also got flown to Seattle for a week for the famous signature event. In terms of work, I was put on a great team where my project was actually critical for the team. I became good friends with my mentor and manager, but with a company as big as Microsoft, team culture can really vary. The team asked for my preferences on the type of work I want beforehand and gave me something that matched them exactly, despite me not having any experience in that domain beforehand. However, I did find that intern expectations here were noticeably higher than the other companies I worked… Show More

Mentorship and work/life balance were great. Work was not that meaningful because I was assigned to a product that no one ever heard of and I was working on an intern project (meaning my work probably end up in the garbage right now). The intern events are probably the best out of all the big companies. Microsoft invited Daya and the Chainsmokers to perform in front of 2,000+ interns and gave out free xbox one to every intern. Overall, it's a very big company and your experience varies drastically depending on what team you are assigned. HR is also flexible on switching team/organization for your next co-op, though sometimes they are very unresponsive and unhelpful.
