    It is just a job, not good and not bad

    I have been working at Descartes Systems

    Pros

    It is just a job, better than having no job at all. If you are ambitious and expecting to make a difference by working hard, then this is not the place you should come. If you only want the paycheck or not capable to do anything, then you have very good chance to stay here for 5 or 10 or 15 years without being kicked out.

    Cons

    No raise, no bonus, no training and the only reward for your excellent work is the smily face from your manager.

    Disapproves of CEO
