Intern hopefuls wanting to work for a highly rated company should try and land themselves an internship at internet search giant Google, ranked No 1 in Glassdoor’s second annual report of the Top 20 Highest Rated Companies Hiring Interns Right Now.

“To help you find the right internship for you, Glassdoor, a jobs and career community, has combed its millions of job listings and analysed thousands of company and interview reviews shared by recent interns to uncover which companies are hiring interns, how internship experiences compare at the highest-rated companies for interns, and what financial offers look like at these companies,” a post on the Glassdoor blog reads.

Google, which achieved the No 1 ranking for the second year in a row, earned a rating of 4.6 out of five (five being the highest) this year. (The company scored 4.3 last year).

One intern declared that Google treats interns better than its full-time employees, and another perk of a Google internship is the pay. A Google software engineer intern brings in the second-highest average monthly base pay (US$6,462 per month), according to Glassdoor.

Speaking of pay, a Microsoft research intern earns the highest average monthly base pay, at US$7,050 per month.

Microsoft is also on the Top 20 Highest Rated Companies Hiring Interns Right Now list, at No 4. Other technology companies are on the list, too: Intel (No 8), Cisco (No 10), IBM (No 12), and Amazon (No 15).
