Decent place to work, especially in your early co-ops. Work in T&O, they actually seems to operate pretty separate from the bank and it feels like you're working at a tech company. RBC in general is doing a ton of things to adopt tech in as many spaces as they can. In terms of the work I got as an Android dev, it was pretty good. Was sitting idle occasionally even when I asked for work. Overall a pretty good place to work.

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.

Great people and great workplace. Lots of responsibility due to the small team size (which has since exploded to something much bigger), but that also means the work was satisfying and significant within the game.

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.

This was my second term with RBC and I feel I made the correct choice going back. Things in the first month were slow but there was a lot to learn. I quickly realized I got lucky as the full time Project Control Officer for my team was leaving and I got to do all the work. This included budgeting for a 5+ million dollar project for 2017! Even though I was doing the work of two people it never felt that bad and I rarely stayed past 5 on any given day except for month end. I probably got lucky as my manager and senior manager were both really nice to me and mentored me really well. I know friends who didn't have great experiences in other business roles at RBC. It all depends on your team. Overall great place to work but depends… Show More

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

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.

The experience is highly team dependent, and there are a lot of possible teams for interns to work on. Take the mentorship/w-l balance/meaningful work/overall rating with a grain of salt; this is not indicative of the entire company, but rather to my one experience. Sometimes the work gets a little dry and it's not the most interesting, but honestly, that's what you get when you ask to be treated like a full-time employee; you do everything which includes features, tech debt cleanup, tests, documentation, etc. There are some really smart people at the company and they run different groups/workshops (such as a Ruby monthly group and a Frontend monthly group) where they discuss best practices for those technologies and how they're used… Show More

You'll meet some of the best engineers in Silicon Valley at Square, many originally from Google and Apple. The team you work on is very, very important. It determines your work/life balance and learning experience. You can either work ~40/h if you are on a less user facing team, or up to ~50-70/h if you are on a critical team, maybe even on-call. You are paid by the hour with California overtime. Amenities: - Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner usually cost around $1 (to test the Square Reader), it might still be reimbursable but it's not a lot of money. - There is an amazing free smoothie bar, and coffee shop (also $1 to test) on-site. - Micro-kitchens everywhere for a quick snack. - Showers on-site (Harder to find in San Francisco!) -… 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

This was my first co-op so I was just happy to be doing any programming. That being said, the applications that I worked on were very internal to RBC and not sure if they were too useful. I mainly worked on UI features, and bug fixes from time to time. There were definitely lots of times where I did not really have anything to do, and I'd just play games on my laptop or left early. My team was very small, one other co-op (which was nice considering how boring lunches would have been alone), one lead developer, and a project manager who was non-technical really. I'd say its a decent first co-op, no fancy perks or anything, but there were always events going on since I interned in the summer and they usually had free food and stuff at the… Show More

I did my first coop here so for a starting position it was really good. Got to play around with new technologies and the work wasn't stressful. My team was 4 people with one other coop and the manager didn't program so there was a lot of confusion to start. I feel like I didn't get good mentorship/support but everyone was super friendly and I figured stuff out on my own so it all worked out alright in the end.

Depending on what team you get, your experience can be meh, or very positive. I was given several independent tasks to do over my term, but it felt like no one really cared about what I was working on. The people were nice; although it there is a TON of red tape (it's a bank). RBC is very big on co-op/internships so there were meetings with other interns (~10 in Capital Markets), and some of them seemed to be working on really cool stuff. Although being into finance isn't required, it's something I would recommend as most of the stuff you are taught on the job revolves around that.

Had a really hard time at RBC. First two weeks were very slow. Didn't get my own laptop, badge or even a project. Had to really press the manager to be put on a project, which was literally dead. The code was messy, old and mostly written by previous interns. I guess your experience is determined by how quickly you take action. But overall, the entire management is pretty bad from my perspective. Period.
