(NEW YORK) — This summer, Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson star in a new movie in which they play Google interns. According to a new survey of current interns by job website Glassdoor, Google was rated the best company currently hiring interns.
According to Glassdoor’s Scott Dobrowski, “Interns are talking about great experiences. Really making a difference. Doing work that matters.”
In fact, Google was also the top-rated company in Glassdoor’s first such survey in May 2012. In both surveys, Google edged out fellow tech giant Microsoft for top honors.
According to the survey, some of Google’s interns earn over $6,000 per month. Dobrowski adds that “a research Microsoft intern earns upwards of $7,000 per month,” meaning interns no longer have to absorb the potential costs of an internship on their own.
In the new survey, Google received an average rating of 4.6 out of 5, up from their 4.3 in last year’s survey. Microsoft’s rating held steady at 4.2.
