I’m an intern at Uber and I’m making $44 an hour. Wondering what the intern comp is at other tech companies?

Edit: Do you also get catered food?

      Yeah, I thought getting $12 an hour was good back when I was an undergrad (summer '95)

      House prices are ten times at the least compared to 95. Ppl coming out of college are getting underpaid compared to baby boomers adjusted to inflation and cost of living

      Nobody is buying a house on an intern salary, and they aren't up THAT much since 1995. Shitty studio in a bad neighborhood was already $500 then, maybe $2400 now although there are fewer outright bad neighborhoods.

    Intern compensation will be a drop in the bucket compared to what you'll be making later in your career. Also, interns work crazy hours at most companies. So your per hour rate goes down quite a bit across your 12-16 weeks.

      Anything past 40 hours a week is eligible for overtime at Uber. It makes up for the long hours

      Not at all. Interns don't do shit in general. And if they are working crazy hours, there's something wrong.
      Plus, intern compensation is huge compared to your career. You have low taxes, don't need to pay for housing, no 401k. They earn a lot more than entry level FTEs

      I agree interns don’t do as much. But don’t agree about intern compensation being huge compared to career.

      Say intern makes 11k/month (high for internships), if they work hard to find entry level FTE (competing offers and stuff) they can get ~200k first year comp + crazy signing bonus. Internship is short term, and longer term thinking will lead to better comp.

      Is 160 for new grads really high?

      Compared to what it used to be at amazon. In 2017 the new grad offer for non former interns was 103 base, 65 RSUs over 4 years vesting 5/15/40/40, 18.9 first year signing bonus, and 18.9 second year signing bonus. So TC was ~129. Compared to that, 160 is high. Compared to other companies 160 is low tho

      Yeah in Seattle, ft offer for ex interns is 150k. Thats still the lowest out of all FANG new grads :(

    • Apple / Eng cho Chang
      More like 146k, not 150k.

      106k base, 65k RSUs backloaded, 35.5k first year signing and 30.5k second year signing, so first two years TC is around 146k

      Im being optimistic about the stocks hopefully they rise enough that the 5% vesting allows the gap to be closed to 150k

  • see https://www.whereto.tech for list of intern comps. click "new grad" button to change job level to internship.
    40-50/hr is pretty standard for top bay area companies.

    It’s cost to attract the candidate to full time, not the fact that the work they’re producing is worth that much.
