I worked at DBRS as an intern (Less than a year)RecommendsNeutral OutlookApproves of CEORecommendsNeutral OutlookApproves of CEO
There are so many talented full-timers who are willing to help you grow as a software engineer. Also, as an intern, you are never given "busy-work". The projects that you're working on are meaningful, and there's always a lot to learn from each project. The Global Tech team at DBRS also holds a hackathon every term, which is another bonus! Finally, software engineering interns at DBRS earn a pretty high salary compared to other software engineering interns in the Toronto area. Oh, and also free hot beverages (coffee, tea, lattes, hot chocolate- anything you can imagine!)
The Global Technology team in Toronto is quite small (<15 people), but that's not necessarily a con.
