    Pros

    They have great people to work with, very helpful in helping you figure out how to adapt to a new project.

    The focus is primarily on web application development for co-ops and if that is not where you want to focus towards as a developer then it might not be the best suit for you

    Advice to Management

    The management team is great and very organized especially when it comes to placement of co-op students on projects within the company.

    Pros

    I completed 2 co-op terms at Systemgroup and they were amazing! Systemgroup has a very friendly and innovative culture. There are so many great mentors and everyone is always willing to help. I got exposure to several Microsoft technologies and grew tremendously as a developer. I got challenged with new responsibilities on a daily basis and I learned something new everyday! I could not have asked for a better co-op experience.

    Cons

    It can be helpful to have more critique sessions to further improve deliverables.
