"The only good thing about this place is the free food and the free shirts. Other than that it is super disorganized. It hires more coops than required and later make them sit idle with no actual work."

"Free snacks/drinks, free breakfast everyday, free lunch tuesdays, free dinner everyday if you stay late. great learning environment, get paired with awesome young devs and potentially cool projects. plenty of responsibility. there are a ton of interns so its always fun to chill in games room and play pool with them on breaks. office hours are long 9-6 but you can get away with coming at 10 later on. 100% recommended for first job, will learn a shit ton."

"You can learn how to build apps from step one. Pair programming all the time(which means one-to-one tutor) Pay is really shitty.(they only offers $100 more per week for me to return) works from 9-6 Strongly recommended if you are in your 1st or 2nd coop term."

"Its not about them accepting 35 people that has nothing to do with the quality of work. There's smart people to learn from and the work allows you to make decisions and get recognized for it."

"beer and cake, informal yet formal atmosphere, had a lot of responsibility for a co-op, got to talk directly to head engineer and CEOs. daily standups and other aspects of agile process made it easy to stay on track as well as flexible to adjust to sudden changes. learned so much!"

"Great working environment, they have a ping pong and Foosball table. Salary is average for a Canadian SDE co-op job. They do pair programming do not have a lot of unnecessary meetings for the developers to attend. "

"Foosball table, ping-pong table, fun sociable people. The job isn't very interesting unless you're new to mobile development. After a term of working, coding starts to be come boring and tedious, especially if you're not paired with an experienced full time employee, who you can learn something from. Low pay compared to many other companies. People are very materialistic and profit minded, although not everybody."

"Excellent atmosphere, super chill work environment. Cutting edge environment. Best place to learn about mobile development. All development is done in "pairs" of developers, termed "paired programming." This is great for learning and productivity, however it means the days are intense. A simple description for Xtreme would be "Work hard. Play Hard.""

"Xtreme Labs was like an intern farm when I worked there. More interns than full times. They made me work really hard, which I hate. Also the pay is shit. Would not recommend. However, on the bright side, some really talented people worked there who keep popping up at other companies I work for. So good connections. A decent first work term."

"Probably my best co-op so far. Initially its intimidating to "pair-program" with an experienced dev watching you code but you get used to it. A huge chunk of the company is co-ops (~40%). Work hours are 9-6 but its a little flexible. Perks => free breakfast every morning, free team events, beer on friday after work hours, lunch & learn once a week. Crappy parts - coffee isn't the greatest although its free and unlimited :) Second time working there for co-op! You learn a lot!"
