Featured Review

Current Employee - Software Engineer II

I have been working at Facebook full-time

Pros

- Good compensation - Brilliant coworkers - Inclusive cultures

Cons

- Bad WLB - Becoming more and more bureaucratic

Former Intern - Engage Scholar

I worked at Pinterest

Pros

Before this internship, I was so lost and not entirely confident that I will get an internship/job because I didn't know where to start. This 8-week summer program gave me the confidence to succeed... in this industry. Was paired up with Pinterest Software Engineer, bi-weekly coding challenge, learned about the interview process, the culture at Pinterest, Linkin/resume workshop, and more!

Cons

Wish I could have talk more to my mentor.
