My experience with Bloomberg in NY was great. You get provided housing in full ($2000 USD/month value) in Manhattan (30 minute walk, 10 minute subway), along with a $2000 USD lump sum pay for relocation. The internship program itself comes with tons of events including weekly tech talks, picnic (they rent an island), data centre tour and hackathons (overnight, 16 hr overtime) and algorithm contests. Of course, you get access to Bloomberg’s pantry, unlimited museum pass and other perks like breakfast and dinner. The building is fantastic, especially the views of uptown in Lex and downtown view in Park. Work-wise the projects were very interesting, you get to pick what you’re interested in and they try their best to do something you love.… Show More

Travelled a ton, so my work life balance was shot. Work is interesting. I personally got to work with many clients and found it rewarding learning about the data and sometimes inner workings / politics of other companies. Did not grow technically as much since the work was more business-application heavy. Lots of learning opportunities in business skills in this role though.

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.

Overall I had a good time at Palantir; I interned in Winter 2016 and they were in the middle of a change to their hiring process so I ended up being on two different teams. I also got to travel quite a bit which was nice. The work was pretty typical application development work, mainly with React and React Native. There's rumours about poor work/life balance but I think that's only on certain teams/offices. I didn't notice anything too crazy when I was there.

Worked in 2017 after previously working at the New York office. Company culture was consistent. I felt that the projects were meaningful and enjoyed working on my team. London did not have as many intern events as NYC, though there isn't as much of an intern program in London so this is to be expected. Having 8 vacation days was nice and allowed me to take extended trips and long weekends.

I worked on one of Bloomberg's ML teams during summer 2015; the work itself was challenging, and I got to work on and learn about infrastructure/data science at a big-data scale. My mentor and team were very available and knowledgable, and were happy to answer questions when I needed help. New York is a blast! They provide corp-housing, which is a huge plus in terms of bonding with other interns and exploring Manhattan.

Overall, I really enjoyed my time at Uber. I thought that the work I was given was really meaningful and I could see the direct impact it had on my team and the company's OKRs. I loved that I was treated just like any other engineer. I was invited to all my team's meetings, my thoughts and input were actively sought out, and I got to work with some really smart people both on my team and across the company. The bad stuff: Now that Thomas (the old UW recruiter) left for Lyft, the recruiting team is a complete mess. They don't seem to care at all about the current interns, most of the recruiters seemed to forget we even existed and they didn't even respond to emails. The food is free, but not great. The internship program also doesn't seem… Show More

I worked at Uber during Fall '17. I thoroughly enjoyed my time there. I went to Uber as I had consistently heard from previous interns that they got really impactful projects. I was not disappointed - I could actually show off my work to my friends and family! There have been a lot of changes since some of the negative press that the company has received. Under the new leadership, the company is on an upward trend. Also, dinners are at 7pm now.
