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 loved my internship at NVIDIA. The salary was recently increased a very large amount as I was paid $46/hour. I got along very well with my team and they really treated me like a full time. I learned a lot while working on the project assigned to me. I included the $2200 housing stipend they give every month to the salary as you keep any that you don't use.

My experience with Bloomberg in NY was great. You get provided housing in full ($2000 USD/month value) in Manhattan (30 minute walk, 10 minute subway), along with a $2000 USD lump sum pay for relocation. The internship program itself comes with tons of events including weekly tech talks, picnic (they rent an island), data centre tour and hackathons (overnight, 16 hr overtime) and algorithm contests. Of course, you get access to Bloomberg’s pantry, unlimited museum pass and other perks like breakfast and dinner. The building is fantastic, especially the views of uptown in Lex and downtown view in Park. Work-wise the projects were very interesting, you get to pick what you’re interested in and they try their best to do something you love.… Show More

The toronto office is great! I got to work with a lot of nice people. Particularly my manager and mentor Blake was very helpful. He gave me a lot of room of freedom that I can decide what projects I want to work on. The job itself is very hard to explain. It's kinda a combination of later stage pm and marketing on a scale (through the sales pods). Food can be a surprise sometimes. I've had alligator and rabbit there. Gym and wellness expense are subsidized as well and you get $300 something everything on ad credits. Overall it's a very cool experience.

Worked in 2017 after previously working at the New York office. Company culture was consistent. I felt that the projects were meaningful and enjoyed working on my team. London did not have as many intern events as NYC, though there isn't as much of an intern program in London so this is to be expected. Having 8 vacation days was nice and allowed me to take extended trips and long weekends.

* Amazing team. My manager did bi-weekly one-on-ones where he asked me for feedback, mentored me on leadership, helped me solve problems related to my work, and pushed me to grow as an engineer. My mentor was really supportive as well and was always willing to help me. * Great social life. Team went after work weekly, plus we did lunch together every day. * Project was perfectly scoped for 4 months and interesting. Got to see it deployed & used before I left. * Annoying restrictions on doing things with the Bloomberg platform because I was an intern (like deploying my code) * This is Bloomberg so lots of very business-y meetings that are long and ... business-y. * Project was planned/designed before I started my internship, so that left… Show More

I worked on one of Bloomberg's ML teams during summer 2015; the work itself was challenging, and I got to work on and learn about infrastructure/data science at a big-data scale. My mentor and team were very available and knowledgable, and were happy to answer questions when I needed help. New York is a blast! They provide corp-housing, which is a huge plus in terms of bonding with other interns and exploring Manhattan.

I interned here during the Winter of 2014 and had myself a pretty good time. Work: The project I was put on was to create a tool to compare how effective our trade pricing algorithms were. Overall, I thought the project was dry and not all that challenging. The project I was put on was purely done in C++, using primarily Bloomberg specific libraries and tools, so it wasn't exactly exciting either. What made work fun though was a great team, a fun group of alumni, and the crazy interns that I got to live with. The city: New York City has a certain charm on it, and it hooked me in. Getting around the city is incredibly easy and it's very happening. From great shows to even greater food, there's always something new.

Salary was actually $43 USD. I was given a full fledged project to work on -- so a large part of my good experience was my team and the project they gave me. Other than that summer internships are the best given that they hire 200+ interns from all across the US so there are more people to meet. Great experience overall.

I co-oped for Facebook twice: first time in Summer 2015, and second time at Instagram in Winter 2016. Both times I had excellent mentors, and who coached me during my term. Facebook really does not differentiate between interns and full-times, so the work you get to do will be real and meaningful. They are also really flexible, and try to accommodate to your interests; I was initially assigned an Android project, since my resume has a lot of Android experience. However, I really wanted to learn something new, and my manager was able to accommodate to my learning needs. The corporate housing is luxurious and EVERYTHING at work is free!!!!! (Food, tech, snacks, etc...) The team and managers really try to ensure you have a good work-life… Show More

I worked here during Summer 2015. I was assigned a team, but they are very flexible with regards to what you actually end up working on. For instance, I was put on a back-end team, but ended up doing mostly Javascript because of the project I chose. Everyone around you is pretty eager to help and support you learn. There's generally a lot of cool things to work on, but because of sheer size of the company, it may be difficult to make meaningful impact. Overall, Facebook has amazing perks and is great place to grow and learn as a software engineer.

I had a great time as an intern at Facebook 1) Work: This varies heavily with team, but you do have some say in what team you're assigned. In the Seattle office the bigger teams are Ads and Messenger. I was on Ads and the work was impactful and challenging but fun. Facebook also has amazing internal tooling, processes, and support; meaning we get to spend more time on meaningful work rather than dealing with trivial setup and issues. 2) Perks: FB definitely has one of the best perks among the top tech companies. There's the usual free food, mini kitchens, pingpong/foosball, and gyms, but FB also provides free housing on top of your salary, professional laundry on-site (includes dry cleaning), bike stipend, wellness stipend, a phone with… Show More

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 worked as an intern in the winter term in 2017. The culture was surprisingly awesome for such a huge company - everyone is friendly and the company is very open. The perks were top notch - housing was luxurious, buffet of great food every day for three meals, fitness stipend and snacks. I had the opportunity to work on some pretty impactful projects and was treated like a full-time employee. At work, you're surrounded by really smart, driven people. There's excellent infrastructures and tools in place for developers.

I worked on the autonomous vehicle team. I had a super awesome experience working here. I got to do everything from hardware to software to product design, and I felt like I was actually an integral part of the team that I was on. I felt like I gained a lot of experience in writing well-architected C/C++ code as well as other skills more specific to building an autonomous vehicle. Most of all, I really liked the people at NVIDIA. The people I worked with at NVIDIA were some of the most humble but yet smart people I've ever worked with, and I felt like I became close friends with many of the people I worked with despite stark differences in age / backgrounds / nationalities. NVIDIA is also a very diverse workplace, and I was actually… Show More

It really depends on your team. I didn't feel connected to my team at all, and they didn't seem that interested in me or what I was doing. The test environment broke all the time and people didn't care. I was stuck with an underpowered dev server for the first 2 months which made everything very slow and flaky. Sometimes it took weeks for people to review my code. When planning my project, one teammate kept harping on the fact that it's "an intern project" and "Maybe he doesn't know how to code." My manager was not a good mentor. One of the first things he told me was how his previous intern's project is no longer used in production at all. He often acted as if things could be done in a "few hours" or "a day" when it would obviously be… Show More
