"Application Developer Interns must learn “Scheme” programming language which is a non-transferable skill to any other company. You will basically be building a skill you’ll never use anywhere else and may impact your career growth at external companies demanding experience from popular programming languages (Java, JavaScript, Python, etc)."

"The base framework and company structure was poorly created (was created a long time ago, with technologies that no longer exist now, hence has a 'patchwork' feel to it). At times, long work hours."

"1) Long work hours at least 10 hours each day. 2) Management does not recognize your hard work. 3) Design reviews are joke 4) Too much micromanagement. 5) Managers lie about everything. 6) It would be difficult to find next job because of technology used "Scheme""

"You have to work in scheme and use their model engineering and IDE which was pretty annoying. I didn't experience any of the things mentioned by older reviews: beer Fridays, bonus for your work term report or sky trip. We did have fruits on Wednesdays and bagels Friday and you can get a subsidized goodlife membership for the term which is nice if your into that kind of thing. Overall it was pretty average job."

"I was treated like a full-time employee - responsible for implementing features and bug fixes, doing daily standup meetings, and keeping track of my tasks for the sprint. They work HARD. As a previous reviewer said, don't bother if you want a place where you can play foosball every day. This is a serious, fast-paced, high-pressure, aggressive-growth-oriented company - they make a lot of money, hire new people constantly, and quite simply, want to be the best at what they do."

"Beer Friday, pay you for your work term report if you hand it in to them in the last week (500 bucks), meet cool people, you get treated like a full-timer in terms of workload."

"Business casual dress code, very convenient location (right above a subway stop), and a food court in the building. Very fast paced and high pressure environment, almost everyone works overtime every week. Don't bother if you're looking for one of those casual foosball-playing offices. Great learning experience overall - I felt responsible for quite a bit, implemented features and bug fixes, and was part of a project team and scrum. Interesting and powerful in-house technologies."

"It's a pretty good job except you have to code in scheme( I don't mind it personally, but yeah...) Fast paced environment. Push their co-ops a lot. Two things I don't like about the jobs: 1) dress code is bussiness causal 2) the only "good" place to get lunch is McDonald's, unless you take subway..."
