A fun experience, but don't expect too much free time as it's still a startup. Work hard play hard culture, so you'll spend most nights there past 8-9 but there's lots of great people there to spend the rest of the night with! Free food is amazing, terrific snacks and great location at Trinity Bellwood's! Also great product, would recommend investing!

[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 loved my internship at NVIDIA. The salary was recently increased a very large amount as I was paid $46/hour. I got along very well with my team and they really treated me like a full time. I learned a lot while working on the project assigned to me. I included the $2200 housing stipend they give every month to the salary as you keep any that you don't use.

Worked there from sept to dec of 2017. Great company to work at! I worked on full stack development for one of Nvidia's internal platform. I included the $2250 monthly housing stipend to the salary. The mentor is very willing to help and the general culture in very positive. Nvidia provides subsidized food, so that was pretty good. I would highly recommend this job to anyone!

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.

Worked during the Fall of 2016, company was ~ 45 employees when I joined and 65+ when I left. Pros: - Fast moving means you get to contribute code right away - Same responsibilities as a full time employee - Lots of company perks Cons: - Growing pains, as always, lead to some disorganization - Sometimes best engineering practices aren't always followed

Worked on Google Research doing machine learning on my own project. Learned a ton and the team was really smart, I was playing catch-up the whole term. Culture is great, so even though I was the youngest person in the room by about 25 years we all go along great and imo Google does literally everything to make working there perfect. I'd highly recommend joining a club, as bjj during lunch was a lot of fun. I think the well-known perks are overrated (food, laundry) and the biggest perk is the communities inside Google that are super friendly and inviting. Didn't have that many intern events but I was also not there in the summer, so go in the summer if you can!

Yext is a neat startup in Manhattan that provides a location management platform for business owners. The company takes very good care of its employees, with free lunch and dinner every day provided by Seamless (so you get food delivered to you from a nearby restaurant). During the middle of the term, they also took the whole engineering team on an all-expenses-paid trip to Puerto Rico. The product itself is a bit boring (like enterprise java software) but the perks make up for it. Since I was the only intern in my term, the culture felt a bit lonely at times. Much of the company culture was centered around alcohol, as every team mixed cocktails every Friday, and coworkers frequently went to bars together after work. If you like ping… Show More

Interned while this was still at the old office location in the Tannery. The facilities back then were great, so I'm sure the new office is amazing. This was my first taste at the "tech life" i.e. free food, and I'm pretty sure I gained at least 5 lbs by the end. In addition to salary, you get a housing and transportation stipend. As for work, the project I was on ended up being high priority for launch in that quarter, and so it was a great experience to work with a bunch of other engineers on the team and to launch it to real users in the end. Everybody is super smart and super friendly - a great internship experience overall.

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.

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

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 worked on the autonomous vehicle team. I had a super awesome experience working here. I got to do everything from hardware to software to product design, and I felt like I was actually an integral part of the team that I was on. I felt like I gained a lot of experience in writing well-architected C/C++ code as well as other skills more specific to building an autonomous vehicle. Most of all, I really liked the people at NVIDIA. The people I worked with at NVIDIA were some of the most humble but yet smart people I've ever worked with, and I felt like I became close friends with many of the people I worked with despite stark differences in age / backgrounds / nationalities. NVIDIA is also a very diverse workplace, and I was actually… Show More

Worked at the Autonomous Vehicles team. Super meaningful work. Extremely flexible hours. I literally went to work sometimes at 11:00. You own your project. Best place to work at. If you like C/C++, choose NVIDIA over any other BigN in a heartbeat.

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
