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!

TLDR: Awesome experience, great company culture, full ownership over projects, good modern tech stack with lots to learn, competitive pay (especially for earlier coop terms), perfect WLB and great mentorship. I would highly recommend this position if you are self-motivated and passionate about full stack web development. Awesome opportunity to learn about all aspects of full stack web development, since there are only two full stack developer co-ops you will have full control over your projects, from ideation to development to deployment. There can be some downtime between projects, however if you take initiative and find problems to solve, you are more than encouraged to innovate new solutions for them. The projects solve real problems… Show More

1. Perfect for people who know what they want to do/learn. You are always welcome to try new stuff as long as it adds value to the team. 2. Fast-paced, we move on quickly. On average, each co-op would work on 3 projects per term. 3. 100% ownership of the project. 4. Communication is never an issue due to the small team. You can always receive feedback immediately. 5. Office is located at Communitech, where you can talk with people from the other labs and learn from them.

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.

Great work environment. Mentors are very smart and you'll learn a lot. All the code you write will be useful/shipped, though the difficulty of the work varies based on what they need to get done.

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.

Best internship I have ever had. I highly doubt companies at the size and scale of Uber are willing to give interns real work that has impact, but Uber definitely doesn't shy away from that. The work is very very interesting and challenging. You'll definitely enjoy your time here. Perks include breakfast, lunch, dinner, $200/month Uber credits, 17% Uber discount, fresh fruits, snacks, overtime salary, housing stipend, monthly phone stipend, fitness discount (Fitness SF). Overall, fantastic company to work at, great culture, WLB, and most of all the work is definitely something that will allow you to grow as an engineer. I'm very strongly considering Uber for full-time over places like Google just because of the growth opportunities I… Show More

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 love - love - loved my internship at Apple as a Software Engineering Intern. The work I did was developing a core production product where I was able to make valuable contributions to developing services that helped complete goals for the team that I was on. I think in terms of pay they have recently made significant increases? At least for the Siri organization. I was paid $45 USD/hour with the chance to do basically unlimited overtime (1.5x hourly). Mentorship was excellent - of course this is team based - my mentor constantly checked up on me to ensure that we were in sync and that I was having an enjoyable experience. People were incredibly friendly in my organization. Although you have to pay for lunch (dinner is free), the food… Show More

I interned here as a SWE intern. Work was really good and my team gave me a lot of autonomy on what I could work on. The company is huge but every org works pretty autonomously so I didn't feel like I was doing unimpactful work. Everything is extremely team dependent. Apple Park is one of the most beautiful buildings I've seen in my entire life and they've recently opened it to all Apple employees. The facilities, gyms, etc are all top notch and in pristine condition and exactly what you would expect from Apple. From my experience, at Apple you'll get a shared private office with another co-worker. IMO it's way better than the crowded open office layout all the other tech companies have. YMMV though, some (unlucky) people have… Show More

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.

I spent two of my co-ops at Snowflake. It was an incredible experience. I was on the SQL team, but the division between teams is not that important. I was assigned challenging, meaningful projects, and mostly worked independently, talking regularly with coworkers and mentors and having them review my code. Pros: - Very smart engineers to work with and learn from - Excellent codebase (organized, documented) - Meaningful projects that affect customers - Annual Snowflake ski trip in March - Cheesy Thursdays (cheese and wine) - 30 minute Caltrain ride away from SF - I got $6500/month 1st time, $9000/month 2nd time Cons: - They use Subversion

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

- full ownership of projects and ideas - interesting project problem spaces - great pay - small team of 4 co-op students (2 full stack dev, 1 mobile dev, 1 UI/UX designer) and 2 full time employees - lots of opportunities to learn new skills and apply them to the project you're working on - awesome workspace - Communitech has a bunch of other innovation teams there, as well lots of cool events - basketball court, arcade machines, ping pong table, and Foosball table - super friendly manager awesome experience overall, highly recommended to all co-op students

Overall it was a great experience as I got to work on some cool projects. Danny is a great mentor but the only full time that was there during my term. He lets the co-ops have full control of the project which we respected a lot. The company had a startup feel but the projects at the time were frustrating due to head office restrictions. I would recommend this co-op for a first or second year student.
