I returned to Capco for a second work term due to the positive experience I had with them in the past & I absolutely do not regret that decision! Everyone at this company has such a great mentality to "work hard, play hard" which is why the culture is so great. I had amazing opportunities to take on responsibility well outside the realm of a co-op student, but with great mentorship and learning capabilities. My favourite co-op experience by far and would recommend to anyone who wants real experience and amazing co-workers!

I worked here for four months for Chris Tharmalingam and Igor Omerasevic. This was easily the best co-op experience I've had up to date. My supervisors were extremely supportive and allowed me to take on responsibilities that you would not get in most other internships. The overall culture at Capco is excellent. Everyone is supportive from top to bottom. Tom Wan, the head of the BA coops during my time was also a great mentor who was always willing to provide advice. I would recommend this co-op to anyone looking to get their feet wet in FINTECH consulting.

I really enjoyed my experience at Capco. Everyone I met was easy going and willing to help with anything you asked. I had a great work/life balance during my time at Capco, and they supported it by hosting many company events over the term. My role provided a unique blend of experience in consulting and project management while also allowing me to learn more about technology and software development. I would recommend applying here to anyone interested in consulting and/or technology, best co-op experience I've had!

Worked there two terms now. Both on different teams as a EE intern. The most important thing I find interning at Apple is finding a good team/mentorship. I was lucky enough to have amazing mentors and team during my time there which led me to learn a ton of things. Lots of work to be done, so had some late nights, but no-one forcing you to stay late. Only stayed late because I really enjoyed the work. Tip : Remember Apple is a huge company 40,000 + employees.. Every team is different, so when you are interviewing ensure there is proper mentorship and good work. For hardware, I say its a really good place if not the best, but for software I'm sure there are other companies that are much better.

DISCLAIMER: I had many friends who worked at Apple and really loved it, I was just incredibly unlucky with my project and team. - I worked in the Hardware Tech org, the majority of which was situated in satellite buildings around Apple Park, but not in it. Instead of working in a bright, modern, open office, I worked in a claustrophobic, depressing sea of cubicles. - The manager who hired me was transferred right before I arrived, which meant no-one on the team really knew what I was supposed to be doing. I eventually worked on a project spearheaded by the team's former manager, but without him giving guidance and direction, the project stalled, taking nearly the entire term to finish. - My team was incredibly antisocial, not just with… Show More

The projects were innovative and challenging, as the team does a lot of R&D work. Work life balance is manageable, although there is not much to do without access to a car.

I worked at Capco as a Software Engineering Consultant Intern from January 2018 - April 2018 in the Toronto office. I'd say that this experience was one of the best work experiences I've had so far. From a technical/educational perspective, I worked with Java Spring on the back end team. When I first started I was given the right resources to get myself set up and familiarised with the code base. My teammates were highly experienced in the field but were also very helpful and approachable. I first started off with some simple tasks, but as time progressed I got assignments that were as important as any other full time developer's. One of the best educational advantages was that I had top tier programmers reviewing my PRs and giving… Show More

I worked here in Spring 2017 as an iOS developer. Capco offers the unique opportunity of contributing to projects that will affect millions of consumers due to their position in the finance industry (clientele include all of the big banks in Canada). The work culture here is fast-paced but you'll have lots of support within your team, as you'll often work with experienced developers who are more than willing to help you out. Capco also hosts lit socials almost every week throughout Downtown Toronto that are completely covered. I guarantee your time here will be worth it.

I interned here as a SWE intern. Work was really good and my team gave me a lot of autonomy on what I could work on. The company is huge but every org works pretty autonomously so I didn't feel like I was doing unimpactful work. Everything is extremely team dependent. Apple Park is one of the most beautiful buildings I've seen in my entire life and they've recently opened it to all Apple employees. The facilities, gyms, etc are all top notch and in pristine condition and exactly what you would expect from Apple. From my experience, at Apple you'll get a shared private office with another co-worker. IMO it's way better than the crowded open office layout all the other tech companies have. YMMV though, some (unlucky) people have… Show More

Mentorship was almost non-existent and the project was useless. Most intern software projects are demos / proof of concept work that never see the light of day. If you are lucky, you might work on some small features that actually ship. Company culture is really strange, everyone is super secretive about what they are working on. The company is also extremely stingy with perks, offering no free breakfast/dinner and free dinner only if you stay past 7 PM. Overall, I think that Apple is a good company to work at if you are into hardware or are a massive fan boy. If you are into software, there are better companies out there.

The work is meaningful, although it is very busy and you need to be very self motivated to get through different issues. Work life balance is alright.

I was a Developer with Capco and had an absolutely wonderful time! The company is great and they have lots of fun events where you get to meet other project members and pretty much every event is free and has food :) It's not too corporate, it has a pretty flat structure, which is great. In terms of work, I lucked out with a really good project and with dev, I think you'll always have something to do. I learned a lot and it was definitely an awesome experience!

I believe the purpose of an internship is to challenge you, whether that be by putting you in new situations or providing opportunities that force you to learn new things. Capco provided ample opportunities to be challenged this term, and that was by design. I have learned so much at Capco as a result, and would recommend others take up the opportunity to do the same.
