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 worked there for my first co-op term in 2016, and I loved working there. It has a really good culture/environment with transparency. It is a fast growing company, and the office is located west of Toronto. They have a really nice office stocked with food and perks. However, I did not find my main tasks that rewarding because of the repetitive work. But you can definitely get involved in other projects outside of your department if you are interested. Highly recommend this company!

I interned at Flipp in Fall 2016. As a Data Quality Analyst, I could have been assigned to any of the teams in the Operations department. Depending on the team, the responsibilities would differ, but in one form or another it would be some sort of quality assurance. I found the nature of my work to be a lot more repetitive than challenging, but the work that was assigned was also reasonable for a normal work day. That being said, the culture in Flipp is very good. I found it very easy to interact with people from other teams and I found my team very willing to let me explore new ways to do things (my team was still relatively new). In addition, each intern is assigned a mentor in their team whom they are usually able to meet with… Show More

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

Interned here in the Winter of 2017. The work was interesting, but got a little repetitive over time. Coworkers and other interns were very chill and open to collaboration for the most part. Free snacks, weekly catered lunches, and other benefits are great. My specific team was lacking a clear leadership presence, but managed to make do with help from other teams' leads chipping in.

Had a great time at Flipp. The people are really friendly and make an effort to make you feel part of the team. They have monthly company events that are lots of fun and free lunches on Friday, they also give you a Goodlife membership for the term and TTC passes. The work they give you is pretty interesting, although that depends on the team. You'll have an opportunity to work along full time employees and take on as much work as you feel comfortable with. Overall their expectations are pretty reasonable and they seem like they really want to see you grow. I would really recommend working there!

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

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.
