"I co-oped here in 2017. I can confidently say that all the belligerent negativity is unfounded. They treated me as a significant member of the team and gave me meaningful work and research to do. I worked under a very capable, considerate, and accessible supervisor who was always willing to spend the time to help or even teach me an interesting and relevant scientific/mathematical concept. I learned and contributed a lot to the exceedingly interesting field of image prcoessing and remote sensing"

"They treat their employees, both the full-time workers and the co-op students, very poorly. They're not the kind of company that will look over a minor issue; many of these people will take simple advice on how to improve something as a direct insult. There is no proper pay scale and you'll see the they're just trying to get the cheapest form of labour. As that other reviewer mentioned, it is true that most of this company does not know how to speak English.I used to think, "hey, maybe they're complimenting my abilities," but when I walked into the room to hear then all suddenly stop laughing and yell "crap, it's X!" I knew it was bad things."

"You will not do any work related to programming or engineering here. The people are extremely unprofessional and do not understand how to speak any English. People will talk behind your back in their own language while standing in front of your face and as a student, you will not be able to do anything. The company is extremely cheap and previously hired co-op students to weld and do electrical work. When I refused, I received a failing co-op grade which took months to fix with CECA. My work as a programmer here included working in "shipping and receiving", changing light bulbs, mopping, and also sweeping the board room.I guarantee that you have absolutely nothing to gain and everything to lose by accepting a co-op position here."

"Did absolutely nothing meaningful, people are unskilled, code is the worst I have ever seen with no meaningful version control. The company is really cheap and there are absolutely no perks. You are timed in and out via fingerprint and are not allowed to work from home."
