I thoroughly enjoyed my internship at Metaswitch Networks. I had a good time during my summer there and I was happy with my time there, from the tasks I have been given to the activities organised specifically for interns. Everyone was extremely friendly and keen to help. I’ve learnt a lot during those 11 weeks!
The ethos and people at this company were great, and I enjoyed a fair amount of the work - it felt very rewarding - but there were also a lot of work I had to do which I didn't expect and didn't enjoy. This harder, less enjoyable work didn't spoil the whole internship but it certainly made it worse.
I enjoyed my internship a great deal, it was a really good experience and I generally enjoyed the work I was doing. I liked that I was working on a project that genuinely felt valuable and useful. It was a good environment in which to work, and I appreciated that there were many other interns within the company, and that many social events were arranged to make us all feel very comfortable within the company. The vacathon which was arranged for us was also enjoyable, and was a nice opportunity to try out different things and work in a small group on a project, something that I've not really experienced before but enjoyed.
I thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of my internship. The work environment was friendly and helpful but I still felt challenged. The work was interesting and fulfilling and I really felt like part of my team (not the classic image of an intern not doing 'real' work). I got to work on a product that got sent to a customer, so I know the work I did is actually being used.
It was a great experience, I received a project to myself and had flexibility on how to complete it. It was a great learning experience and a fun project. My manager was always willing to help and so were others when he wasn't available. There are a lot of fun activities including an intern hackathon in enfield.
I have really enjoyed my time at Metaswitch. The work was varied and for the most part, it was very interesting. What really made my internship enjoyable were the people in my department. I was in a very lively department where there was always someone to chat to. I also felt like the people in my team genuinely cared about my life and how my internship was.
Each day held a new and interesting problem which was relevant to the work that the rest of the team was working on. This enabled me to stretch myself and learn more about the product being developed and tested, and to improve my programming abilities and skills as a software engineer.
I loved it. The company has a very supportive atmosphere and genuinely cares about each employee's development as a person. I started my internship with no experience of professional software development, and they provided all the training I needed, along with both a mentor and a manager who were there to help me develop. I would highly recommend applying.
I really enjoyed the work I was given - it was varied and interesting. It was challenging but I felt well supported. There was also lots of other activities to get involved in as well as the work such as sport and other competitions and other people there seemed to genuinely enjoy their job so there was a good atmosphere.
Overall I enjoyed the internship. I had a project which gave me the opportunity to learn a great deal about the relevant product. However I was frequently frustrated because the project was working with old, under-documented code. The company did provide a large number of activities and social events, which were generally fun.
I enjoyed the internship a lot. The work was varied, challenging and interesting, and the internship itself was well-organised. There were a lot of team morale events, which were fun, and the company was always happy to assist us in meeting new people, getting involved in activities, and getting stuck into the job.
The internship was very enjoyable overall. I learned a lot because my mentor was sitting next to me all day, ready to help. The work I worked on was part of the actual project, so I feel like I contributed to something useful. The team and my mentor understood I was new to software engineering, but still challenged me.
