    Former Intern - Software Engineer(Internship) in New York, NY
    Recommends

    I worked at Yext for less than a year

    Pros

    - As an intern, you're given real work and treated exactly like a new hire would be, which makes it an amazing opportunity to learn and grow as a developer. - Everyone I worked with was incredibly nice and really good at what they do, which also made it a great learning environment. - Lots of social events, both specifically for interns and also within the software teams/department as a whole so you get to know lots of different people even if they're not on your team. - Female software interns automatically receive the company's Grace Hopper scholarship which provides them with an all expenses paid trip to the Grace Hopper Conference for Women in CS in the fall.

    Cons

    - Team rooms were getting a little cramped when I was there, with both interns and new hires starting, but they're moving to a new office this year so that should be less of a problem. - A lot of social events revolve around bars/alcohol, so they probably wouldn't be as fun if you're an intern under 21.
