Adobe / BehanceAmy ChenSummer 2015Tweet me: @theAmyDanceThe work culture at Behance is great. They make you sure you don't get burned out & encourage you to ask questions. Definitely ask me who you should talk to while at your internship to get the most out of it. There was a lot of freedom in the internship to work on projects you were interested in. Tweet me.

web: b2b webapp used by all clients
data: hard to find scale like this elsewhere (besides fb/google/nsa)
real time bidder: probably one of the few places where you'd be writing optimized c code if that's your thing

overall: very well run company, if a little boring on the product side (nobody dreams about adtech)

GoogleBigSite Reliability EngineerJarek SedlacekInternship Summer 2012, Full-time Summer 2013 - PresentJarekSedlacek@gmail.comPerks off the chart (seriously, way many to be able to list here. That isn't the interesting stuff though). Incredible internal tooling, insanely smart co-workers. Strong emphasis on code reviews, {unit,systems,integration} tests, and reliability. You will learn a LOT, very fast. Very flexible in what you work on. (I'm sure everyone has heard of 20% time). Hours are totally up to you, as long as you get your shit done, no one cares when you are in (or where you are working from). The best thing to me is the problems Google faces are ones most companies don't run into, since so few things run at Google scale. Teams are very small, management structure is very flat (promotions and such are decided by your peers, not your manager). Honestly, my dream 2013: $100k/year, 250 units of stock, relocation bonus depends on distance moved for new-hire full-time. Internship in 2012 was housing + $80k/year (so $1,538.46 per week, + very nice apartment in SF)

Working in the Copenhagen office as a full-time employee. Everyone speaks English in the office, and it is a super international office and an awesome company to work for. The work life balance is really really good, with work days being an average of 7 hours long. Overall a really healthy environment both mentally and physically. We get delicious cake every Thursday too which is pretty cool.

Worked on Windows Azure. They have what I think is the single best tech internship program. Microsoft Internships are like summer camp, except they pay you lots of money, give you a rental car, put you in Seattle, and give you a lot of free shit. It's also cool to intern for Microsoft if you think of yourself as someone that wouldn't traditionally work there.

Jerry Reptak, Indraneel PurohitSummer 2013 - Summer 2014, Summer, indraneelpurohit@gmail.comInternship - Join a small team, get assigned your own project. 1 on 1 mentorship. While working on your own project also work with team to push their feature to product. Fulltime - Small teams, quick release cycles, feels like a startup. Company is turning around, new codebases.

Summer '14: you can feel a turnaround happening, Marissa is a dope leader, mobile is booming and much younger than rest of company, not as big of an emphasis on code quality as you might find at Google or Facebook. Some teams have more boring work than others but things are moving fast in pretty much every dept. If Marissa stays CEO, this will remain a good place for engineers—she's really doing her best to Googleify it. 3 meals/day + micro kitchens on every floor. Lots of cool events, talks and intern stuff

Jon: I worked on the mobile team and pretty much every major feature we shipped over the summer on Android was written by interns, so if you're looking to become a badass mobile developer, definitely apply. People on other teams also seemed to be enjoying themselves, I just can't speak first hand to that.

Tum: I worked on the search data team and really really enjoyed my experience here. People were very nice and super smart. I got to work on a cool project too (business matching for various partners' data merging and for data deduplication). My mentor knew tons, and I learned from working at Yelp more than what I learned in many classes combined! A 5 star internship!

Goldman Sachs30,000 (10,000 are in the tech department)Software DeveloperRenish MattaSummer 2015renish.matta@rutgers.eduEveryone is very friendly and nice. They have a flat stucture so you can talk to anyone by setting up a meeting with them. There are projects using various technology stacks so there will most probably be a project you're interested in. They are slowing becoming more open source(GS Collections, Symphony, etc...). Your experience also depends on your team. The company has a really good mobility system. Some negatives would be no free food and not really a tech company (though they claim they are). The culture of the company is for the most part chill (flexible hours as long as you get your work done) but you won't get the hacky/techy culture if your team isn't like that.Summer Salary: 75k/annum rate for sophmores becoming juniors, 85k/annum rate for juniors becoming seniors Full Time: Bachelors: 85k base salary + other stuff like reallocation (becomes ~100k)

Engineering Practicum (Freshman/Sophomore Internship): Google Play Store
Bruno J. LucarelliMay 2015-August 2015
I really loved the team I was placed on (Google Play Store), and I was given a very large-scale project that my project technical lead host wanted to work on himself but didn't have the time for. I got to do analysis, experimentation, some software development, and basically project development and management right after my first year of college! You really need to take initiative and be willing to ask questions, though, or else you'll get lost. It's really worth the time you invest in asking LOTS of questions of your coworkers (I mean LOTS), rather than lollygagging and getting nothing done. Nobody expects you to know anything or everything going in since there's so much to learn, so you need to know that everyone loves to help at Google and that people really do mean well. Don't be scared to cooperate or ask for help, and remember that it's not a competition. Your time is worth a lot to them and they want to make sure that you get the most out of your experience. :) As of recent, interns are obligated by contract to not disclose salary figures from our internships at Google (despite the fact that people have done so, I'm not going to be that person or verify the validity of others' figures). We do, however, receive a very generous relocation bonus in addition to our hourly pay. I mean a VERY generous relocation bonus from which we can keep funds we don't use for our housing, in addition to a really good hourly pay. Seriously, at what point do we stop complaining about what we're earning and just say "whoah, that's a lot of money!"? Also, be sure to file for a tax return and make sure that paperwork goes through. This applies for any internship where you make a very high yearly "salary" but only earn it for 3 months. You'll get taxed like crazy, and then will get a crazy tax return later on when the federal government realizes you've basically made a cumulative salary approaching the poverty line for the year since you only worked for 3 months or so.

Few teams that do really cool stuff, but they do exist. Dress code, some people put in long hours, Decent amount of bureaucracy.

Underpaid with the expectation that you will work lots of paid overtime including many weekend hours. Experience will vary depending on department. Steer clear of Point of Sale.Starting salary in 2012 was $65k. For a while, VZW was increasing college-hire salaries at the rate of $5k per year, but I'm not sure if that trend continued through 2015. Standard corporate 'performance reviews' netted me a few thousand dollars in bonuses each year and a few extra thousand in raises. When I left after 2.5 years, I was making ~$78k base, ~$105k including overtime. Decent 401K program with 100% match up to 6% of salary - unfortunately, there is a 3 year vesting period for the match with no partial vesting.

Software Dev Intern
Derek MacielSummer 2017derek.maciel@rutgers.eduWorked at the company headquarters in the Philadelphia area. Technologies used varies by team; nearly every team uses C#, but some will use C++, and each team has some Python thrown in somewhere. Interns are placed on real projects and are respected by others in the company, I believe my project was hugely important to my team and was not something I would expect other companies to put an intern on. The Lecture Series during work and the Tech Dinners after work you get the chance to learn about the company from all angles. You are also assigned a "Buddy" full-time employee on a different team who takes you to two or three dinners at awesome restaurants over the summer -- our bills were usually more than $300 each time. Exact hours vary by team but it is usually 8-5 for 45 hours per week. Free breakfasts and lunches, can't complain at all. I have a photo album of my summer: Dev Intern (rising Junior): $35/hr base, 150% overtime. Typically rising Seniors were paid $40/hr base for this position.

Housing: free housing at the UPenn apartments. No alternative stipend or anything.

$500 Transportation stipend for gas/Ubers to work and to events.
