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.

It largely depends on your team but my work was not very interesting. My team had very little guidance and mostly consisted of 16 month interns from other schools. We were actually entirely trained by the previous year's interns during a 4 month overlap, we rarely saw a full time employee on our team.

I worked here in 2017. Interns are assigned projects on the infrastructure team that they are responsible for. Each intern is assigned a mentor that is responsible for helping them with their project. The projects were all very useless; the kind where you know it won't be in use at all after you leave. Overall, the work was very meaningless and I didn't learn much from this experience. The perks were nice though.

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).

Definitely one of the best places in Canada to work. Great pay, culture, and development seems pretty well run. Great opportunities for mentorship, but you may need to actively seek it out. Learned a huge amount from the various engineering talks as well as chatting with teammates.

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.

Honestly, it wasn't the most exciting work. They did offer a one time relocation stipend to help with moving.

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

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.

Worked summer of 2017 on the platform team. The platform team really improved throughout my term to become a team that's quite enjoyable to work in. Work hours are flexible, and you get a lot of flexibility in your own work as well. From day 1, you're treated exactly the same as full time engineers, and have the same privileges as them. The work is very impactful, and you're encouraged to come up with your own solutions to problems that they try to solve. The food, location, and coworkers are all nice. They really push you to work hard and be responsible for your work, which can make you adjust your own work hours in order to get the work done. The salary could be higher to match other larger companies, as they really strive to attract… Show More

Worked there for Winter 2017 term, it was friggin awesome. The impact you can make working there is unreal, and for those less experienced you can really learn a ton. Try to work for relevancy, product, or infrastructure team; the platform team coops were slaves.

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!

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

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

Best co-op to date. Company culture is fantastic, and your mentor will do their absolute best to support you and your learning. Since it is a mature startup, there is definitely some red tape and work you do might get re-prioritized, but your manager will do their best to shield you from it.
