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.

I worked here in 2017. Interns are assigned projects on the infrastructure team that they are responsible for. Each intern is assigned a mentor that is responsible for helping them with their project. The projects were all very useless; the kind where you know it won't be in use at all after you leave. Overall, the work was very meaningless and I didn't learn much from this experience. The perks were nice though.

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.

The impact you get to make at Wish is very significant. You'll mostly like make major contributions to the app, with almost full ownership through out the development cycle. A/B experiments (if they go well) will sometimes tell you that your features increased annual revenue by millions of dollars. As relevancy engineer, you will do a mix of data science work, like analyzing user behaviours and revenue trends, and engineer work, like product recommendation and product categorization algorithms. You won't get a designated mentor and will be expected to be very self directed, but it wasn't hard to get help from the full time engineers. People tend to come in late (at 10-11) and leave late (at around 7-8) so the work hour tends to be a big… Show More

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.

Really enjoyed this job, solely because they let me work on projects that would normally be reserved for full time engineers. Out of all my internship experiences, I can say that I learnt the most at this one hands down. Would really recommend working here if you want to learn as much as you can in 4 months time. Biggest con was the salary, tho I think that has to do with my lack of negotiation. They do give a stipend but it really isn't enough to cover housing in the city (plus it gets taxed at a higher rate).

Worked summer of 2017 on the platform team. The platform team really improved throughout my term to become a team that's quite enjoyable to work in. Work hours are flexible, and you get a lot of flexibility in your own work as well. From day 1, you're treated exactly the same as full time engineers, and have the same privileges as them. The work is very impactful, and you're encouraged to come up with your own solutions to problems that they try to solve. The food, location, and coworkers are all nice. They really push you to work hard and be responsible for your work, which can make you adjust your own work hours in order to get the work done. The salary could be higher to match other larger companies, as they really strive to attract… Show More

Worked there for Winter 2017 term, it was friggin awesome. The impact you can make working there is unreal, and for those less experienced you can really learn a ton. Try to work for relevancy, product, or infrastructure team; the platform team coops were slaves.

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
