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!

I loved my experience at Capco. They were all very down to earth people who genuinely wanted you to get something useful out of the term. They have an amazing work/life balance because everyone works very hard to get things done but also have company events once or twice a week. Would totally recommend applying here, best co-op experience I've had!

The people at Capco are an amazing team of people to work with and work for. As an intern they did not treat me as someone who just does tasks for them but instead as someone part of the team and they cared more about me as a person and about my growth as a developer than about their specific tasks or products. I loved my first internship there so much that I returned for another one. I would recommend Capco to anyone.

Working for Capco was an awesome experience. The projects are super cool, the people are amazing and you will learn a lot. There's a solid work/life balance with a bunch of fun corporate events. I would highly encourage everyone to intern at Capco if you get the chance!

This was my second year as an intern. I started as part of the Explore Program, chose to come back as a PM and will be returning this upcoming summer for my 3rd internship. I know others have talked about unenthusiastic teams, bad mentors, and bad managers. I understand. My first summer, my manager was horrible, chastising my abilities and my work. I expressed my concerns with my mentor, and thankfully, she was able to help me. The CEO said "people don't quit companies, they quit teams", which struck a chord with me. I decided to return the next summer as part of a different team. (I also found out that summer that my previous manager had been moved down to the position of Individual Contributor) I was also able to connect with someone… Show More

The Microsoft intern program is well-organized with lots of special intern events (eg game nights, Mariners games, hiking etc). You get lots of perks with your salary including subsidized corporate housing, gym membership, and lots of gifts/swag. Microsoft is large and fragmented, so your experience will depend a lot on your specific team and manager. Overall, the people are smart, the culture is laid back, and the company mood is optimistic. There is lots of interesting stuff going on at Microsoft, but 4 months is not enough to ramp up and fully take advantage of everything. Your internship will likely be project-based and you shouldn't expect your intern project to be something cutting-edge. Return offers are relatively easy to get… Show More

The quality of the internship really depends on these three things: - The team you end up on - The manager/mentor/lead you end up having - The project you get assigned These things can vary greatly and I lucked out with fantastic team, manager/mentor/lead, and project. When interviewing, make sure to make it perfectly clear what your interests are. They'll try their best to put you on something that matches your interests.

The Office team in Microsoft Japan worked on docs.com and Office Lens while I was there. You'll be assigned an onboarding project to start off with, and then move onto a main project to finish off the term with. If you finish your main project quickly, then you'll probably end up working on regular engineering tasks. The projects were in different fields, and a couple of them were quite interesting (involved NLP, OpenGL), but a lot of them were fairly standard web/mobile-development feature tasks. Obviously, these choices will vary each term. Hours aren't particularly long, but they're pretty offset from the usual business hours (most people came in at 11 and left after 7). You're not pressured to commit to 11-7 at all though. Your… Show More

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.

It was a great experience working at Capco. During my time at Capco. I was thrown right into development and given significant work. The people at Capco were willing to help me with any issues and I learned a lot through their mentorship. If you don't like your work, Capco will find you a project that you are happy in. I would highly recommend applying to Capco.

I worked there from January to April 2016 and had a fantastic experience. Software consulting is very fast paced, so I was forced to learn mobile development quite quickly, but not without support from senior developers. It was great to see a product end-to-end in only a few months, very rewarding experience. We often had team lunches to increase bonding.
