Bigger the company the better?

I just got accepted to a full-time (12 week) summer internship program for Samsung Electronics. I will have to go to Miami for this, but I thought it would be a good experience since the employers are either Korean, American or Latin. (I'm fluent with Korean, English and Spanish).

I was also accepted to some other internships for relatively smaller companies...

Would my resume look better if i'd pick Samsung Electronics? Is bigger the better always true?

Thx.

    No.
    But it depends on which area you are choosing to go into.
    It'd look good if you're going into engineerings or something like that, this opportunity will give you an insight to your specific area of interest.

    Bigger is not always better. Sometimes, smaller internships can allow you to do more substantive and meaningful work. Smaller, however, is not always better either. It can mean fewer opportunities to network.

    Superlatives are usually not useful, I guess would be best way to put it.
