Data Science Intern

June - August 2019 • San Francisco, CA

What I liked

It was fun having flexibility and responsibility over a customer’s project and needs.

What I wish was different

I wish the company was more organized in their internship process and offer process.

Advice

Amazon is great as a big tech company, but I’d much prefer other companies that offer more perks (less to worry about), are more personable and more organized. They didn’t confirm my internship location until 1.5 weeks before starting, and they didn’t respond to any emails or requests to call prior to starting either.
