Fantastic startup that's working on wastewater data. Very small, but everyone is a really chill person that does their job well, and can give great advice/mentorship when needed. Lots of freedom to try (useful) things that you think are interesting , as well as lots of responsibility since you're one of a few people at the company and your time really matters. It was located in this cool co-working space at Bathurst/Bloor, which is fun, hipster area with no shortage of great lunch options. Co-working space has free tea + coffee that are both really good, and there are lots of interesting socially conscious startups in the building meaning you get to meet a lot of interesting people. I really enjoyed my work there and was encouraged to… Show More

I worked at Google Kirkland office during summer term of 2016. I was assigned to the Cloud team. It was a great experience. My host and my team were very helpful and flexible. They gave me constructive feedback and helped me improve and acquire new skills in software development.

Worked on Google Research doing machine learning on my own project. Learned a ton and the team was really smart, I was playing catch-up the whole term. Culture is great, so even though I was the youngest person in the room by about 25 years we all go along great and imo Google does literally everything to make working there perfect. I'd highly recommend joining a club, as bjj during lunch was a lot of fun. I think the well-known perks are overrated (food, laundry) and the biggest perk is the communities inside Google that are super friendly and inviting. Didn't have that many intern events but I was also not there in the summer, so go in the summer if you can!

Worked here in 2B. Mileage will vary depending on the team. Worked on the cryptography team. I was the only non-PHD. I love cryptography

I worked there during Summer 2016. The company doesn't provide corporate housing, so interns have to find their own, but there is an extensive shuttle network and they also provide a bike for the duration of the internship.

Did an internship in Winter 2015 on the main campus and it was probably the best internship experience I've had. Lots of perks and you're around really great people that want you to make the most of your internship experience. Would definitely recommend checking it out!

Interned while this was still at the old office location in the Tannery. The facilities back then were great, so I'm sure the new office is amazing. This was my first taste at the "tech life" i.e. free food, and I'm pretty sure I gained at least 5 lbs by the end. In addition to salary, you get a housing and transportation stipend. As for work, the project I was on ended up being high priority for launch in that quarter, and so it was a great experience to work with a bunch of other engineers on the team and to launch it to real users in the end. Everybody is super smart and super friendly - a great internship experience overall.

At Google, you can be extremely productive because everything actually "works" as intended. It's true that the impact is diluted at such a big company, but on the bright side, it's extremely flexible to switch to a team that interests you.

Worked there summer 2016. Great place, the Waterloo office is super nice. Great pay for the region, and has a good amount of features that Mountain View has (not quite as much though).

Interned during the summer of 2017. I was on the Google Help/Feedback mobile team (iOS) and had two semi-independent projects throughout my term, both of them fully launched! I also got to do a large amount of backend development despite being hired as an iOS developer. The office culture was very laid back, and my host/team was very helpful during the entire internship. Not included in the salary is a $9000 relocation bonus at the start of the internship.

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

This was my first internship so I was really excited to work for such a big company. I loved working with my team and I still keep in touch with my mentor even after 4 years. I even went back to visit recently. I was on the App Engine team as a technical writer so I did a lot of web development (not so much the technical writing part). I got to understand the internal structure at Google, experience the work life there (which is pretty sweet with all of those perks and fun stuff lying around - even slept in one of those sleep pods once!). The work was challenging enough for me at the time and I also learned to work with a lot of new technologies.
