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.

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).

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.

Internship greatly exceeded my expectations. There were a lot more perks than I was expecting and the full times on my team were great. The experience does seem to vary based on which team you are placed in (luckily I had an amazing team). Additionally nice if you are a Canadian or UWaterloo student as there is additional mentorship available from grads that work at Yahoo (about investing, building credit, etc). Work is not super meaningful (hence 4 out of 5), but still more interesting than other places I've interned at.

Interned here during Summer 2017, during the acquisition. Work was a lot of fun; got to work on a meaningful project and design/implement it from start to finish. Mentors were really helpful and patient. Not sure how the acquisition will change the culture... after becoming Oath things seemed to have a more corporate overtone, but the work I was doing was not impacted and there was still free food, so I can't take anything away for that.

Yahoo is a great place to work as an intern. The free food here is amazing, however dinner can be hit or miss. YMMV with your project, however I was given a lot of responsibility to work on my project, and implement new features. There are a lot of intern events in the Summer, including UW specific events that are also there during Fall and Winter. I would highly recommend Yahoo, especially for people in years 1 - 3. There's also a 6k housing stipend.

Although the company is declining, the coop experience is pretty nice. Lots of perks and outings. There may not be too much work to do, depending on your team.

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

Facebook has a great culture and everyone treats each other really well. Team-matching does a pretty good job finding a team that would interest you. With all big companies, there is a concern with the amount of impact one can have, but aside from that, I can't think of any other cons.

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.

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 Facebook in Fall 2016 on Infrastructure. Work-wise, Facebook's internship program is very well structured; they really focus on providing mentorship and tools that allow developers to come in and ramp up quickly. I had a great relationship with my team and a lot of respect for both my team manager and internship manager; they were all very keen to make sure I was enjoying my time there. Dev experience is very polished, I was never blocked on infrastructure not being available for me to work on my project. Benefits are probably top-tier in comparison to other tech-internships, you also really bond with other interns outside of work. This is a great choice!

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 worked at Polyvore, and the company culture was amazing. Everyone was really friendly, and my supervisor specifically chose tasks to maximize my learning experience, as well as my contribution to the product. Also, the food was delicious, and it was really diverse, as every day there were different options.

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.

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

My expectations coming in were fairly low considering the fact that Yahoo no longer has the tech giant reputation that it once had. However, I was greatly surprised and had a great internship. Note that experiences at Yahoo are team dependent, but the general consensus among the other interns was that the internship was awesome. The perks are cool (3 free meals, micro-kitchens with snacks, gym, VTA pass, etc), but what really makes this place great is the people. The full time employees on my team were super smart and helpful and seemed to care about making sure I learned and enjoyed my time here. I was really impressed that my team gave me meaningful projects since coming in, I was expecting to work on "side projects" that wouldn't get… Show More
