    Pros

    Interns are treated incredibly well. The food and extra curricular activities were amazing. Fun campus. Fun problems I was solving in my team. Nice people. Lots of learning!!!

    I was able to stay late and even go in on a couple of weekends,. but it was by my choice. I really liked my project and being an intern.

    Cons

    Nothing that comes to mind. The only thing I would have wanted more of was more feedback on where I can improve.

    Pros

    Great benefits and intern perks; they really do try to make having an internship a lot of fun (probably more fun than being full-time). Seattle is a great place to spend a summer.

    Cons

    Old, awkward to use tools can mean you spend most of your time waiting for things to build. Some teams are so poorly organized that no one knows what the team actually does.

    Pros

    You get spoiled beyond belief. Great pay, great events, and company gifts that all try to get you to sign on full-time. The people are friendly and always willing to help.

    Cons

    The company is so large that every logistical process takes forever; miscommunication is frequent and everyone's job is so specialized that you don't know what's going on on the other side of things. Typical big company disadvantages that are uncommon for most tech companies.
