[Fall 2017] I worked at The Coalition, a game studio owned by Microsoft best known for the Gears of War series. They have an office in Downtown Vancouver (15 mins away from "Big Park," the other MSFT office) WORK: Game development is hectic and haphazard, and unfortunately, I came in during a particularly busy time for my team. I didn't really have a chance to sit down with someone and "learn the ropes," and I was instead thrust head-first into a task and told to "figure it out." Now, Unreal Engine 4 is a BEAST, and is not something that easily lends itself to "self learning." Pile-on all of the game-specific things you need to know, getting started in the codebase was incredibly difficult... Regardless, one of the (few) nice things… Show More

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.

You'll never meet a nicer group of people! I pulled tickets from the same backlog as the rest of my team that was meaningful to the company's goals. They use the latest tools and have really good software development practices. The one-on-ones with both my mentor and my manager were tremendously valuable as well. The company and intern events were also really fun and made the 4 months an amazing experience.

Worked there summer of 2018 when it was under the banner of Oath, got to meet and work with really amazing people. Although there is some instability with the company due to all the restructuring, culture is very collaborative and freeing (at least in my experience).

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.

The Toronto office has a really great, supportive culture - and you're treated as a full timer in every respect. There's a lot of focus on getting stuff done and stripping out inefficiencies / useless bureaucratic processes and "just doing it". Also, the whole company lives and breathes by their availability metrics. Even the smallest outage is taken very seriously - and it's interesting to work in a culture where no matter what you do, you shouldn't break anything. Even though interns don't go on-call, I still felt the responsibility for ensuring my code works well - and I often helped on-call devs handle incidents to get the feel. I feel like I learned a lot there, and had a lot of fun while still having relatively low levels of stress.

Internship greatly exceeded my expectations. There were a lot more perks than I was expecting and the full times on my team were great. The experience does seem to vary based on which team you are placed in (luckily I had an amazing team). Additionally nice if you are a Canadian or UWaterloo student as there is additional mentorship available from grads that work at Yahoo (about investing, building credit, etc). Work is not super meaningful (hence 4 out of 5), but still more interesting than other places I've interned at.

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

Interned here during Summer 2017, during the acquisition. Work was a lot of fun; got to work on a meaningful project and design/implement it from start to finish. Mentors were really helpful and patient. Not sure how the acquisition will change the culture... after becoming Oath things seemed to have a more corporate overtone, but the work I was doing was not impacted and there was still free food, so I can't take anything away for that.

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.

Interned with Yahoo Finance. Great mentorship, learned a lot of new technologies and given impactful projects featured on the homepage. Manager was very involved with making sure I was working on things I found interesting and overall had a great time with great perks. Corporate culture could be improved - team was a bit boring but all in all a fantastic learning experience.

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

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.

As mentioned in other reviews, Microsoft is the biggest software company in the world and your internship experience varies drastically depending on what team you are assigned. I would like to emphasize the compensation in this review. Microsoft literally makes it rain for interns. For first time Microsoft interns (not explorer), you will get paid $7200 per month (per tax). If you were to return to Microsoft as an intern, your salary will get bumped to $7650 and you will receive a one-time bonus of $5000. On top of the base salary and bonus, you can either choose to live in a corporate housing (hella fancy one, with bi-weekly cleaning service) or a one-time $9000 housing stipend for your 4-month internship. So if you are a returning… 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.

Pros: - Great mentorship and work-life balance. - Flexible hours and work from home policy - Treated as full time member of team, with an equal say in team decisions - Teams have a very large amount of autonomy, supporting different working styles. Some teams are very autonomous, while others rely heavily on pairing. Many teams are split across offices. - Interns can lead Failure Friday, and motivated interns can go on-call for their team - Functional programming is applied very widely; Many teams have most of their code in either Elixir or Scala, with only legacy code in Ruby - Free lunch - The people are very accommodating to different backgrounds and lifestyles.

With some of the best mentorship and support I've ever experienced at any company, it's difficult to overstate how positive my experience was at PagerDuty. I can't think of anything you'd want in a job that it doesn't provide: 1. Work life balance: The office is empty by 6pm, and I was actually discouraged from working more than 8 hours. 2. Quality of work: PagerDuty tackles some very interesting problems and as a devops company, the way it handles its infrastructure is absolutely superb; even the most seasoned developers will learn a lot from their solutions. 3. Co-workers: It's not unprecedented for a successful company located in SV to have so many intelligent engineers. However, the way it stands out from most other companies in… Show More

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

Worked there a few terms ago, the experience was great and I joined a team doing something that I had previously no experience in, so I definitely learned a lot and grew as a developer. The work was pretty great but the team was doing some not so interesting things when I joined so I didn't really get to do a lot of what I wanted which is fine since what I did was interesting as well in it's own rights I guess. The free lunch is dope, we get awesome food from great restaurants in TO everyday and work life balance is a blessing too, with no one expecting you to stay back too much or go out of your way to do anything. The company events, culture and perks are all really awesome, we have intern events, DnD nights etc. and it's a really… Show More
