I was really lucky this recruiting cycle and was able to get 7 internship offers for next summer. But, I have been having a really tough time determining which company would be best for my career. My top choices for next summer are Microsoft/Google/Bloomberg. I really want to experience NY at Bloomberg and like the company culture, I just don’t know if it would be a better experience and better for my resume to go to Google/Microsoft. One turn away for Google is the conversion interviews. If you have previously interned at any of these companies it would be amazing if you could just say how you liked it and why. Thanks!!!

    Unpopular opinion: Go Microsoft. No conversion interviews and they pay their intern converts handsomely. I believe top performers got 110k base, 50k sign on, 150k stock/3.5, 10% target bonus. This is also in Redmond which is dirt cheap

      So, If someone has Salesforce and Google intern, Salesforce is a no-brainer ?

      Why do you think it’s a no brainer?

      I received an option for either doing host matching or accepting a guaranteed option which I don’t have so much say in my project but will be guaranteed one.

      Thanks for replying.
      Ohh nice, does Google give a guaranteed option to everyone ?
      Now I understand, why the recruiter was asking about any expected deadlines.
      So do they give the guaranteed option if one has pending deadlines ?

      Of course! From what I understand they don’t give the option to everyone. Maybe it does have something to do with having other deadlines. I’m not really sure what their criteria is to be honest. Are you interviewing with them?

      I have a 3rd phone interview this week.
      Also the recruiter asked me to let her know of any expected deadlines which I didn't get why as a recruiter does not have control over the host matching anyway.
      I am waiting for interview results from Salesforce, Amazon, Cisco.
      I also have an onsite scheduled with Zillow Seattle
