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!

I was given the opportunity to work on projects that i was most interested in. The team was extremely helpful and the work/life balance is awesome. I've interned with Facebook for 2 terms and both terms have been very exciting.

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.

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.

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

Facebook has a great culture and everyone treats each other really well. Team-matching does a pretty good job finding a team that would interest you. With all big companies, there is a concern with the amount of impact one can have, but aside from that, I can't think of any other cons.

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 worked at Facebook in Fall '16. The compensation and perks speak for themselves. The work will vary depending on the team you'll end up on (based off your preferences and skill set to a certain degree). Your intern project and its impact will largely determine how successful the internship will be. For me personally, I've always preferred back-end a bit more, but my main project was a front-end one (ironically, my team was almost entirely backend and infra-related). That being said, I was still fine with getting more front-end experience, especially with React. After expressing my interest in doing more back-end stuff, I'd help with some back-end items after finishing my main project. Admittedly, the stuff I was working on wasn't going… Show More

Unlike many other interns, I was not given an 'intern project' but rather tasks after tasks from my mentor. Therefore, I didn't really feel like I owned anything substantial. So for me, the work wasn't meaningful. Also, the mentorship/support from my mentor wasn't great. I told my mentor many times that I want some more tasks that involve much more coding. However, I was given tasks that had very little coding but require a lot of manual A/B testing done through web ui. I love Facebook culture and food though. 3 buffet meals a day every work day is too awesome. Not only there are a lot of variety of food but the taste of them are indescribable. I really miss their food. Also, intern life is great. Intern events, corporate housing, etc.

I interned at Facebook in Winter 2016. To start off, Facebook pays very competitively when you consider the base salary, luxury housing, intern & team events, inter-office travel, and perks. Large signing bonuses are attached with a full time return offer and you will not need to do technical interview to be considered. Facebook is a large company so your experience and work largely depends on you and your team. The matching process is mostly arbitrary so you are unlikely to be matched with your dream team. Teams have different dynamics so reviews and first hand experiences are mostly based on these individual experiences. The intern program at Facebook provides resources for a intern to shape the internship the way they want it to be.… Show More

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 Facebook in Fall 2016 on Infrastructure. Work-wise, Facebook's internship program is very well structured; they really focus on providing mentorship and tools that allow developers to come in and ramp up quickly. I had a great relationship with my team and a lot of respect for both my team manager and internship manager; they were all very keen to make sure I was enjoying my time there. Dev experience is very polished, I was never blocked on infrastructure not being available for me to work on my project. Benefits are probably top-tier in comparison to other tech-internships, you also really bond with other interns outside of work. This is a great choice!

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.

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

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.
