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.

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.

Worked there two terms now. Both on different teams as a EE intern. The most important thing I find interning at Apple is finding a good team/mentorship. I was lucky enough to have amazing mentors and team during my time there which led me to learn a ton of things. Lots of work to be done, so had some late nights, but no-one forcing you to stay late. Only stayed late because I really enjoyed the work. Tip : Remember Apple is a huge company 40,000 + employees.. Every team is different, so when you are interviewing ensure there is proper mentorship and good work. For hardware, I say its a really good place if not the best, but for software I'm sure there are other companies that are much better.

DISCLAIMER: I had many friends who worked at Apple and really loved it, I was just incredibly unlucky with my project and team. - I worked in the Hardware Tech org, the majority of which was situated in satellite buildings around Apple Park, but not in it. Instead of working in a bright, modern, open office, I worked in a claustrophobic, depressing sea of cubicles. - The manager who hired me was transferred right before I arrived, which meant no-one on the team really knew what I was supposed to be doing. I eventually worked on a project spearheaded by the team's former manager, but without him giving guidance and direction, the project stalled, taking nearly the entire term to finish. - My team was incredibly antisocial, not just with… 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

Highly dependent on the team. My team was very good and had an interesting project that I worked on. I learned a lot and there are a lot of bright people working there. Gave a one time flight stipend ($750 if you're from Waterloo).

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 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

Interned during the summer of 2017. I was on the Google Help/Feedback mobile team (iOS) and had two semi-independent projects throughout my term, both of them fully launched! I also got to do a large amount of backend development despite being hired as an iOS developer. The office culture was very laid back, and my host/team was very helpful during the entire internship. Not included in the salary is a $9000 relocation bonus at the start of the internship.

I interned here as a SWE intern. Work was really good and my team gave me a lot of autonomy on what I could work on. The company is huge but every org works pretty autonomously so I didn't feel like I was doing unimpactful work. Everything is extremely team dependent. Apple Park is one of the most beautiful buildings I've seen in my entire life and they've recently opened it to all Apple employees. The facilities, gyms, etc are all top notch and in pristine condition and exactly what you would expect from Apple. From my experience, at Apple you'll get a shared private office with another co-worker. IMO it's way better than the crowded open office layout all the other tech companies have. YMMV though, some (unlucky) people have… Show More

Mentorship was almost non-existent and the project was useless. Most intern software projects are demos / proof of concept work that never see the light of day. If you are lucky, you might work on some small features that actually ship. Company culture is really strange, everyone is super secretive about what they are working on. The company is also extremely stingy with perks, offering no free breakfast/dinner and free dinner only if you stay past 7 PM. Overall, I think that Apple is a good company to work at if you are into hardware or are a massive fan boy. If you are into software, there are better companies out there.

The work is meaningful, although it is very busy and you need to be very self motivated to get through different issues. Work life balance is alright.
