Pros: Good culture, socials are fun on Fridays, interns are treated as full times with similar responsibilities. Pair programming is practiced rigorously which may be a pro/con depending on the type of person you are. Cons: Low pay, long hours (9-6 not including overtime which is unpaid but isn't too common). Also, depending on your project (can very greatly), may be stuck with something boring for many weeks/months.

CEO was awful. This was absolutely awful for skill development as the lack of competent mentors means that you write and get taught to write shit code. The CEO is an absolute nightmare to work with. But they're trying at least. Overall I did not enjoy this and would rank this as one of my worst coop experiences.

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.

Product is extremely dumb and it's hard to be motivated working for it. Codebase is decade old and most of it is using ancient technologies; you're basically given grunt work that's left in the backburner. Company morale is low and turnover rate is high. Pay is alright, but it's one of the few things going for it. Co-workers are nice, however, and generally resourceful.

I was working on Fusion 360 web which was a product in beta at the time. Since it was in beta, there was also a lot of bug fixing that came with it. However, the bugs were substantial enough to require significant changes and a great deal of learning, which resulted in some meaningful work. I would recommend working here, especially this team, if you are looking to dive into 3D graphics on the web. The office space is also beautiful and conveniently located in Old Montreal near downtown.

Worked on the AutoCAD team summer 2016. Absolutely loved the place, team and work I did. Most of my work was close to research and development but was happy to know that my project blew expectations and is now going to be integrated into the product. Also got $1000/month post tax for housing stipend. Highly recommend working here!

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

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!

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)

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

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.

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.

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

I did my first coop here so for a starting position it was really good. Got to play around with new technologies and the work wasn't stressful. My team was 4 people with one other coop and the manager didn't program so there was a lot of confusion to start. I feel like I didn't get good mentorship/support but everyone was super friendly and I figured stuff out on my own so it all worked out alright in the end.
