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.

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.

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).

Definitely one of the best places in Canada to work. Great pay, culture, and development seems pretty well run. Great opportunities for mentorship, but you may need to actively seek it out. Learned a huge amount from the various engineering talks as well as chatting with teammates.

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

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.

Welcoming culture. Great learning experience for me, especially since other employees also have a learning mindset. (It is an education company after all, I guess)

Lots of perks like corporate phone, health insurance, 17% off Uber and Eats, Uber credits, free breakfast, lunch, dinner, overtime pay, new tech (new macbook pro), free headphones/earbuds. Mentorship depends on team but my mentor was great. Work was really interesting and impactful as well. I worked a lot by choice and got paid overtime. Monthly salary worked out to roughly $11000. HR is a mess though

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 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 Capco as a Software Engineering Consultant Intern from January 2018 - April 2018 in the Toronto office. I'd say that this experience was one of the best work experiences I've had so far. From a technical/educational perspective, I worked with Java Spring on the back end team. When I first started I was given the right resources to get myself set up and familiarised with the code base. My teammates were highly experienced in the field but were also very helpful and approachable. I first started off with some simple tasks, but as time progressed I got assignments that were as important as any other full time developer's. One of the best educational advantages was that I had top tier programmers reviewing my PRs and giving… 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.

One of the best internships to date. Great culture and extremely smart people. The engineering projects were high impact and you could see the value they brought to the company. People really care about your growth and interests. I would definitely recommend it. The perks and compensation are highly competitive (the salary includes $1500 housing stipend).

My internship with Interset was great thanks to fantastic mentorship and challenging/interesting work there. I've had the opportunity to work on high impact tasks and build up a set of skills in the area of my interest. The company culture was a 10/10 with flexible work hours/team bonding events/etc.

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.

I spent two of my co-ops at Snowflake. It was an incredible experience. I was on the SQL team, but the division between teams is not that important. I was assigned challenging, meaningful projects, and mostly worked independently, talking regularly with coworkers and mentors and having them review my code. Pros: - Very smart engineers to work with and learn from - Excellent codebase (organized, documented) - Meaningful projects that affect customers - Annual Snowflake ski trip in March - Cheesy Thursdays (cheese and wine) - 30 minute Caltrain ride away from SF - I got $6500/month 1st time, $9000/month 2nd time Cons: - They use Subversion

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

I worked at Coursera as an iOS intern during the Fall 2014 term. It was my first time working in Silicon Valley, and I was looking forward to meeting many smart engineers working at the cutting edge of the software industry. I found this in my internship at Coursera, working alongside some of the most inspiring engineers I'd met thus far. During my four months, I focused on features around internal tooling, event tracking, and the lecture video player. I learned a ton of iOS development thanks to working closely with my mentor and teammates, as well as attending meet ups in the Bay Area. There's a lot going on everyday at Coursera across all the different teams, but one thing is constant-a lot of the employees empathize with the mission… Show More
