Symcor - Workplace
Symcor does a lot of things, but my job consisted of working in the Enterprise Architecture team, on an application used to survey the employees at Symcor. I worked on a team directly under Jack Vanderhorst, also under Ivan Welsh, and worked equally with another co-op student from Guelph, Anand Patel.
Symcor is a really cool place located in Mississauga near Square One. They have a floor with pool, foosball, T.V.s, an icecream machine, a popcorn machine and more. The company at least where I worked is very technology oriented, and the developers and managers are always tech talking. Square One also offers tons of great food locations and places to go, which is but a 5 minute walk from the front door of the building.
Symcor has many meetings, events, and gatherings, all being extremely interesting such as hearing talks from the CEO, or CTO, to having a cowboy themed barbecue with way too much food for me to handle, which was hosted for Symcor. Overall life at Symcor is fun and interesting, experienced, and stable, and I thoroughly enjoyed my summer working there.
