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.

Symbility is an agency that works on strategy, design, and development projects for clients such as the LCBO. Lots of smart people that you'll learn great things from.

Internship greatly exceeded my expectations. There were a lot more perks than I was expecting and the full times on my team were great. The experience does seem to vary based on which team you are placed in (luckily I had an amazing team). Additionally nice if you are a Canadian or UWaterloo student as there is additional mentorship available from grads that work at Yahoo (about investing, building credit, etc). Work is not super meaningful (hence 4 out of 5), but still more interesting than other places I've interned at.

Interned here during Summer 2017, during the acquisition. Work was a lot of fun; got to work on a meaningful project and design/implement it from start to finish. Mentors were really helpful and patient. Not sure how the acquisition will change the culture... after becoming Oath things seemed to have a more corporate overtone, but the work I was doing was not impacted and there was still free food, so I can't take anything away for that.

Yahoo is a great place to work as an intern. The free food here is amazing, however dinner can be hit or miss. YMMV with your project, however I was given a lot of responsibility to work on my project, and implement new features. There are a lot of intern events in the Summer, including UW specific events that are also there during Fall and Winter. I would highly recommend Yahoo, especially for people in years 1 - 3. There's also a 6k housing stipend.

Although the company is declining, the coop experience is pretty nice. Lots of perks and outings. There may not be too much work to do, depending on your team.

Interned with Yahoo Finance. Great mentorship, learned a lot of new technologies and given impactful projects featured on the homepage. Manager was very involved with making sure I was working on things I found interesting and overall had a great time with great perks. Corporate culture could be improved - team was a bit boring but all in all a fantastic learning experience.

I worked at Polyvore, and the company culture was amazing. Everyone was really friendly, and my supervisor specifically chose tasks to maximize my learning experience, as well as my contribution to the product. Also, the food was delicious, and it was really diverse, as every day there were different options.

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.

My expectations coming in were fairly low considering the fact that Yahoo no longer has the tech giant reputation that it once had. However, I was greatly surprised and had a great internship. Note that experiences at Yahoo are team dependent, but the general consensus among the other interns was that the internship was awesome. The perks are cool (3 free meals, micro-kitchens with snacks, gym, VTA pass, etc), but what really makes this place great is the people. The full time employees on my team were super smart and helpful and seemed to care about making sure I learned and enjoyed my time here. I was really impressed that my team gave me meaningful projects since coming in, I was expecting to work on "side projects" that wouldn't get… 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!
