SAUSALITO, Calif. (February 27, 2013) – With many companies already advertising for summer internships, Glassdoor, a jobs and career community, is helping intern candidates figure out where to apply with its second annual list of the Top 20 Highest Rated Companies Hiring Interns Right Now. This year, Google ranks #1 for the second year in a row, followed by Procter & Gamble, QUALCOMM, Microsoft and Nordstrom.

“Glassdoor’s mission is to help all job seekers make more informed career decisions, and that includes college students looking for internships,” said Amanda Lachapelle, Glassdoor’s director of HR and talent acquisition. “This list helps college students hoping to get their foot in the door at companies they might like to work at, and gives them a snapshot of which companies other interns appreciate working at most, what the interview process is like, and what their earning potential might look like.”

Google ranks as the highest rated company among interns with its 4.6 company rating, improving on its 4.3 rating in last year’s report. (Company ratings based on a 5-point scale: 1.0=very dissatisfied, 3.0=OK, 5.0=very satisfied). Google interns speak favorably about working on projects that impact others, helpful employees who treat interns well, generous compensation packages, and perks like free meals. One Google Platforms Project Manager Intern (Mountain View, CA) shared: “Google treats interns even better than full time employees. All of the employees all the way up to VP personally spend time with you and take your opinion.” In addition, Google Software Engineer Interns bring in an average monthly base pay of $6,432 per month. Other Google Interns earn an average monthly base pay of $5,787.

Check out the complete results below, including company ratings, interview difficulty ratings, and average monthly base pay, entirely based on current and recent intern feedback:

Approximately 15,000 interns have shared company reviews on Glassdoor. The Glassdoor company review survey asks employees, including interns, to rate their satisfaction with the company overall and to provide feedback on the benefits (pros) and downsides (cons) of working at the company, among sharing other workplace insights. For the purposes of this list, a company’s ranking was determined using each company’s average company rating on Glassdoor according to interns who participated in the survey between January 29, 2011 and January 28, 2013.
