do NOT work here. First of all, they pressure you to come to work early and stay late. On the contract and in the interviews, they say that it's a 9-5 job, but realistically, it's at least 8:30-6:30. To give you an idea, one of the coops left at 5:30 in the first week and got called out by the CEO who happened to be by the door. We weren't even doing anything that first week other than some warmup coding exercises. Needless to say, no one wanted to be the first to leave, resulting in sad kids staying WAY past their designated hours because they're all pressured to stay and pressured to not look bad for the next four grueling months. Additionally, the office is tiny. Smaller than a classroom on the 4th floor of MC. It's as big as a… Show More

New startup in Toronto, good experience for first co-op, the work is interesting since it focuses on data engineering. Pay is a bit low for living in Toronto though.

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

I worked at Uber during Fall '17. I thoroughly enjoyed my time there. I went to Uber as I had consistently heard from previous interns that they got really impactful projects. I was not disappointed - I could actually show off my work to my friends and family! There have been a lot of changes since some of the negative press that the company has received. Under the new leadership, the company is on an upward trend. Also, dinners are at 7pm now.

Fun company to work at. Lots of social events and the average full time employee is pretty young so there was a lot to do as an intern. Work was cool due to the scale at which Uber operates. The work-life balance is lacking since most people stay late and there is an expectation to work overtime. Also, dinner is at 8:15 pm.

I worked there in Fall 2016. This was the first time I got to work on real machine learning - I got to build a model and work on feature engineering. I had superb teammates who were technically strong, and the work I did at Uber had the most impact on the compared to all my other co-ops. The infrastructure at Uber is not as mature as companies such as Facebook but there are tons of challenges to solve and it is an exciting place to work at!

I also received a housing stipend of $5000 USD and $400 worth of Uber credits every month (I believe they don't provide the Uber credits anymore though). I had a great experience here and learned a TON. Unfortunately, the workload was huge and the company moves at a very rapid pace, so I was incredibly stressed out. I don't think I've ever been more stressed out in my life.

Overall, the company seems stingy. Dinner starts at 8:15 pm. The free rides program was changed from a credit based system to a ride based system, greatly reducing the usefulness. I personally did not get any transportation stipend. There were a handful of engineers that were without a doubt overworked. However, I did not have bad worklife balance. The work, the projects and the problems Uber is solving are very interesting.

Best team I've ever worked with. I've had the chance to work at great companies in the past, but the team at Figma was something else for me. I feel like I've grown the most from this internship as a person and also learned so much about design and full stack development. I would highly recommend working at Figma if you're passionate about design!
