Final Thoughts


Would you recommend this internship to a friend?

Yes.

Are you returning?

No, I did not get a return offer.

Summary


My team did not have a project for me when i started. Then i had to develop a full stack application in 6 weeks and i did not finish. My manager was also busy alot of time and reaching out to other full time engineers virtually was hard. I also didn’t feel comfortable enough in my team since i was the only intern. I did grow as a person thanks to their strict culture. I did like that i had the chance to obtain an AWS certification and overall i had fun but i wish it had been in person.
