Overall a pretty good co-op term, catered lunch every day is great. There were some growing pains during the time I worked there so the organization of teams and the prioritization of projects were still being figured out.

A fun experience, but don't expect too much free time as it's still a startup. Work hard play hard culture, so you'll spend most nights there past 8-9 but there's lots of great people there to spend the rest of the night with! Free food is amazing, terrific snacks and great location at Trinity Bellwood's! Also great product, would recommend investing!

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.

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.

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

Lots of perks like corporate phone, health insurance, 17% off Uber and Eats, Uber credits, free breakfast, lunch, dinner, overtime pay, new tech (new macbook pro), free headphones/earbuds. Mentorship depends on team but my mentor was great. Work was really interesting and impactful as well. I worked a lot by choice and got paid overtime. Monthly salary worked out to roughly $11000. HR is a mess though

Overall, I really enjoyed my time at Uber. I thought that the work I was given was really meaningful and I could see the direct impact it had on my team and the company's OKRs. I loved that I was treated just like any other engineer. I was invited to all my team's meetings, my thoughts and input were actively sought out, and I got to work with some really smart people both on my team and across the company. The bad stuff: Now that Thomas (the old UW recruiter) left for Lyft, the recruiting team is a complete mess. They don't seem to care at all about the current interns, most of the recruiters seemed to forget we even existed and they didn't even respond to emails. The food is free, but not great. The internship program also doesn't seem… 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 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

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.
