    Great Internship program!

    Current Employee - Software Engineer Intern in Menlo Park, CA

    Pros

    The internship program is great! I learned so much!

    Pay is great. Culture is awesome. Corporate housing is easy and nice.

    Cons

    You're pretty much thrown into the fire immediately. But I think they do that on purpose to see who can take it.

    It's VERY fast paced. You're expected to learn quickly and fairly independently (although you should know when to ask for help!), which isn't for everyone

    Expect to spend 50-60 hours a week at work. BUT, it doesn't really feel like work.
