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.

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 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.

This was a great experience for me because I was able to learn lots at work and travel around in Europe for the first time. I worked with Ruby on Rails for the backend projects and EmberJS for the frontend. I was able to work and lead a project by myself and the best part is that they used two of my projects to actually help the company gain more revenue! The work was challenging and I was able to help with the design process as well. I would definitely recommend Intercom as you'll get to work with some really amazing and fun people!

One mentor per coop guided you through. Worked as part of the team for a bit, then on a project in the app. Overall good experience. The housing sucked though

Was a small company when I was there. There were a few people that brought the internship experience up. Did not interact with the rest of the company much. Was given full autonomy over my project, but did not receive much feedback.

I worked here in Winter 2016. I was assigned a team that had a lot of projects in progress. There is pretty good mentorship from people in your immediate team, but since the company is expanding very rapidly, it may not be as simple to grab a hold of people to ask questions. Work-life balance varies by team, with some people working pretty long hours, but as an intern, you aren't expected to work long hours. The work you do at Snapchat will almost always be meaningful and be put to use. Those working on mobile will most definitely be able to point to something important or relevant in the app by the end of the internship. There are many free food options around and a solid chef in the cafeteria for lunches and dinners. Although there's… Show More

Really open and supportive culture. There is an emphasis on maintaining work life balance and biweekly paid-for "council" sessions. Internship project and mentorship can vary widely based on team.

I was working on the Broadcast team which was one of the most fun teams available. Within the team there was great culture and my manager was extremely supportive and helpful whenever I needed it. The overall company culture isn't the best and there are some difficulties around recruiting and perks but overall it was a fun co-op and a great was to experience LA living.

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.

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
