What I liked
Absolutely loved how open and relaxed the culture was - it almost felt like I wasn't even working, but at the same time was learning the most I have ever learned each and every day. I would be able to come in around 9 or 10, sit and have breakfast with other interns (they have great food on campus - which by the way is free!), and then head to my desk or my first meeting.
The work itself I quickly found was fascinating, as an intern, I was still given real work that would be shipped to the public on the Facebook platform and had full autonomy over how I wanted to execute my project. While this could seem intimidating, Facebook made me feel as though I truly was there for a reason and my work really was valued. I also had an incredible support network. I was able to sit right next to my manager and my design mentor (a full-time employee just a couple years older than me), and right across from my manager's manager, so I was able to get constant feedback and mentorship throughout my entire time there.
Aside from the work, the food, the campus, and the extravagant employee events and perks were definitely a plus, but the main thing that stuck with me was the person I became while I was there. I found the most creative, collaborative, passionate, overall best version of myself during my summer there, and I could not be more grateful to have had the opportunity to work there.
