[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.

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 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

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

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.

I was working at Salesforce at Fall 2017. Overall, the internship experience is awesome. There are lots of intern only events. The corporate housing is wonderful, large and clean. And it is 10 minutes walk to the office, right in the downtown of Bellevue. There are gyms downstair and gym at your apartment. You got 100 dollar every month for your well being and you got to participate lots of VTO events. My manager gave me a lots of freedom to choose the project I would like to work on. My mentor is super helpful with scoping the project. Would recommend this internship to anyone.

Overall pretty good company, great company culture, people here are really friendly and willing to help. The work you do will depend on your team, but my team gave me lots of options and many were very interesting, they definitely promote giving interns interesting work. The Bellevue office is very new and nicely decorated, it has a barista bar who makes fresh coffees, expressos, etc. They give an option of corporate housing or $11500 (after tax, this is your take home amount) stipend which is more than enough for Bellevue. They have lots of other interns and intern events during the summer, not sure about other terms. Theres also a monthly 100 dollars "wellness perk", which is just a free 100 dollars to spend on whatever you want.… 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

Company culture was amazing. I got to experience a lot of fun intern events and had the experience to work on some very interesting technologies. Although I do feel that the projects given to me were not too meaningful to the company. The corporate housing was also pretty nice too; though you have to share it with another roommate in the same room. I highly recommend it.

Everything about the company was awesome. Everyone I met was super friendly and very talented. The work that I was given was more impactful than any other coop I had before and I was able to see the results of my work. The futureforce team organized many fun events throughout my summer internship including meeting many upper execs (including co-CEO!) in person, baseball games, all-you-can-eat food truck park, day at amusement park, day at zoo, day touring SF, etc... There was also the work-from-home day every thursday. The only downside is that you are required to share the bedroom in corporate housing with another roommate. The room itself is very luxurious (free gym & spa) and is fully furnished even with kitchenware.

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.

I interned at Yelp in Winter 2018. Yelp has a really solid internship program. They really try to give the interns the best experience with weekly events. It helps to have a smaller intern group in the Winter term because you can really get to know everyone. In terms of actual work, I mainly got worked on their backend APIs and business logic. Nothing too challenging, but still pretty fun. The mentorship I got from my mentor was exceptional, but this is very team/mentor dependent. The culture at Yelp is definitely one of its major perks. Everyone is super nice and chill, no overtime expectations. The salary was 8000$/month with a 1500$ monthly stipend.

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
