As spring draws near, a college student’s mind starts thinking about internship. So Glassdoor scanned its database of 27,500 open internships to help them decide.

It came up with a list of the 25 best internships in the land based on intern feedback. Not surprisingly, tech companies dominated the list, taking up half the spots.

Glassdoor ranked this list based on intern satisfaction, which interns offered on a scale from 1 to 5. To make it easier, we researched the salaries these companies offer, as reported by interns to Glassdoor.
