[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.

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

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.

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

I had a great experience interning at Redfin. The compensation package is pretty standard and fair - housing stipend, relocation bonus and transportation subsidy. There are many incredibly smart people who have worked at other top companies before coming to Redfin. On my team, the work life balance was excellent - I had an extremely good manager who hit the perfect balance between pushing the team to work while giving enough flexibility to allow the team to work. The internship program is fairly well structured and they try their best to provide meaningful mentors, but it does depend a bit on personality types. To me, Redfin is the perfect size for a company - large enough to give comfortable compensation and in house infrastructure,… Show More

Redfin is a real estate tech company headquarted in Seattle. On the first day, I got to meet all the execs and they were super nice. All the recruiters and managers I worked with were approachable as well. I was an intern in the Notifications Team. I worked with engineers who were from great schools and who had worked in Amazon and Microsoft before Redfin. They let you choose any team and project you want based on your interest. I loved the flexibility. The work culture is great and there is a lot of great mentorship and work-life balance. We also had team events to increase team morale. Overall, I would highly recommend Redfin as an internship, especially someone who is interested in Big Data problems and the Real-Estate business.

Redfin was a great place to work as an Internship. You are surrounded by incredibly smart people who like to get stuff done. Through the mentorship program I was able to grow and really learn some new concepts and try different things. Everyone is very friendly and wants to help you. The company is small enough that you could strike up a conversation with the CEO or CTO.

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 was on iOS team, holy **** everyone on my team is super nice and super smart. They are just amazing people to talk to. The work was super meaningful, I was able to fully ship 2 major features to AppStore in the span of 4 Months. Asana really cares about your passion and make sure you enjoy what you work on. Asana has no doubt the best mentorship program for interns in the Bay Area. 11/10 would recommend. (I am a foodie, and Asana has one of the best in-house chefs, food is 12/10)

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
