If you're a UX-er or product designer, Shopify should be on your list. They (are starting to) bring in some top talent from all over the world. Literally, I've got to work with designers from Facebook and Airbnb during my time here. The design work is really starting to get noticed globally, and Shopify is one of those companies who deeply care about their design. You will come out of this co-op feeling as though you became a better designer for sure. - Lots of opportunities for growth. Your lead will take care of that for sure. - They actually give a shit about their design work - Amazing designers to talk to, lots of talent coming in - Intern housing in Ottawa is nice - Projects are super fun and there is lots of transparency so… Show More

This was my second year as an intern. I started as part of the Explore Program, chose to come back as a PM and will be returning this upcoming summer for my 3rd internship. I know others have talked about unenthusiastic teams, bad mentors, and bad managers. I understand. My first summer, my manager was horrible, chastising my abilities and my work. I expressed my concerns with my mentor, and thankfully, she was able to help me. The CEO said "people don't quit companies, they quit teams", which struck a chord with me. I decided to return the next summer as part of a different team. (I also found out that summer that my previous manager had been moved down to the position of Individual Contributor) I was also able to connect with someone… Show More

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.

Worked as a front-end developer intern for Fall 2017. The people and environment are really nice and I had a great term here. You get treated like a full time member of the team rather than an intern. Nice office, catered lunches mon-thurs

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

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.

The quality of the internship really depends on these three things: - The team you end up on - The manager/mentor/lead you end up having - The project you get assigned These things can vary greatly and I lucked out with fantastic team, manager/mentor/lead, and project. When interviewing, make sure to make it perfectly clear what your interests are. They'll try their best to put you on something that matches your interests.

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.

The Office team in Microsoft Japan worked on docs.com and Office Lens while I was there. You'll be assigned an onboarding project to start off with, and then move onto a main project to finish off the term with. If you finish your main project quickly, then you'll probably end up working on regular engineering tasks. The projects were in different fields, and a couple of them were quite interesting (involved NLP, OpenGL), but a lot of them were fairly standard web/mobile-development feature tasks. Obviously, these choices will vary each term. Hours aren't particularly long, but they're pretty offset from the usual business hours (most people came in at 11 and left after 7). You're not pressured to commit to 11-7 at all though. Your… 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

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.

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
