Context: This is my third software engineering internships. The previous two were mid-size company in the US. I excelled at those internship, finished my works, got praised, got reference from my past managers, learned a tons, felt super happy, etc etc.
Now, I'm currently interning at the big 4 (Google, Facebook, Amazon, Microsoft and the likes). This was the dream come true for me, as even having the name of such company on my resume would make my job search much easier. I was placed in a team that does not align with my interest, I hated the project, and still do until now. All the technologies the team is using I have a hard time learning and liking it (C++, PHP, etc). Overall, my background and the team's work does not very collide and mix well together.
So I talked to my manager, and my manager's manager during the 6th week of the internship. Changing team was not an option they said, but they agreed to alter the project a little bit. I know that I caused them trouble, so I suck it up and kept working on the altered project even though I still hate it.
The company culture does not really encourage asking questions that much. During the first half when I asked questions for clarification, I was deemed "dependent" and it reflected badly on my midterm review. Sometimes before I can even pop the question, my peer would be too busy to answer or felt annoyed. I am super stressful everyday, I could not make progress on things that I do not understand. and can't ask questions about it. I am extremely introvert and hard to socialize, I tried my best to talk to my team but I can't just seem to get into the conversation. They are good people, maybe it's just me and something about the team that I can't seem to click (I was able to socialize very well on my first 2 internships).
This is week 8 of the internship, I'm super stressful that for the past 2 weeks, I wanted to come to my manager and say "is it ok if I quit?" I am 90% sure this will result in a "no offer" at the end of week 12, so I'm just trying to make the most out of it. I see other interns happy, playing ping pong all the time, but I do not know anyone that I can talk to and scared to realize that I'm the only intern among thousands in the company that feel this way.
I don't know guys. This is supposed to be one of the best internship program in the planet. Have anyone interned in big 4 and got a terrible experience? Any advices that can help me improve my experience, even though it might be too late?
