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 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.

There are definitely some organizational pains that come with a company trying to grow. They were aggressively hiring full-time employees when I worked there for both the San Francisco and Waterloo offices, as there was an extra signing bonus for new employees going on. However, at least 5 full-time employees left the company or were fired in the 4 months I was there, so take that how you will. Most of their old monolithic application is still written in PHP, with most of the newer services written in Ruby on Rails and Golang. Mobile applications are written in Java (Android) and Objective C (iOS), although they’re planning on rewriting in Swift at some point. Some custom firmware and other things are written in C, although for the most… Show More

You'll get a lot of responsibility and make your own features, but the culture is a bit dull. Not very diverse and not really any company events.

Was given a lot of responsibility and room to grow. However, the company culture seems to be very superficial. The company undeniably has very good perks for Waterloo, free lunch, breakfast, monthly events, etc... But that does not make up for some of the more serious issues with TextNow. The company seems to have a large problem with work life balance, as a co-op this probably won't affect you too much, however be prepared to see some very stressed, overworked full time employees. There's also a lot of politics for a company of this size (~100 people) and the management team seems to push for things like unlimited vacation as a means to make up for the lack of work life balance. But as most people know in practice that does not lead to… Show More

A quickly changing company going through a lot of growth. When I was interning, teams were still being figured out, but working at such a company will provide a neat learning experience. Would recommend at least one internship in this kind of environment. People at TextNow were super friendly, and the work that they were doing was interesting and is becoming more interesting term after term as they face new challenges.

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.

Learned a lot about battery chemistry. Since the company is so small ~20 people, the interns can make a pretty big impact. People are friendly. Management can be improved.

Worked during the Fall of 2016, company was ~ 45 employees when I joined and 65+ when I left. Pros: - Fast moving means you get to contribute code right away - Same responsibilities as a full time employee - Lots of company perks Cons: - Growing pains, as always, lead to some disorganization - Sometimes best engineering practices aren't always followed

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

Redfin was a great place to work as an Internship. You are surrounded by incredibly smart people who like to get stuff done. Through the mentorship program I was able to grow and really learn some new concepts and try different things. Everyone is very friendly and wants to help you. The company is small enough that you could strike up a conversation with the CEO or CTO.

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

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!

A pretty fast-paced co-op, but that was very enjoyable for me. Was given a lot of freedom as to what I wanted to work on and how I managed my time. Also I was able to switch to more of a back end role in the latter half of the co-op which was great! Would definitely recommend TextNow; one of the better places to work for in the KW area.
