    Great company, amazing products, true commitment to education.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat product family that met the needs of educators across all grade levels. Great team to work with, very progressive understanding work/life balance.

    ConsNeed to be more innovative, too late to the corporate market. Recognized the need early on for a line of product appropriate for corporate use but too slow in bringing it to market.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen more to the teams in the field

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    They took a chance on me and vice-versa

    Assembler (Former Employee)
    Kanata, ON (Canada)

    Pros-Professionally managed orientation
    -Supervisors directly provide daily feedback
    -Duties are rotated between breaks
    -Plant Manager addresses worker concerns
    -Great place to develop team building skills

    Cons-Operation manager tends to overwork new hires ("your getting paid time & 1/2 so why not" )
    -Primitive training methods on production floor
    -Buddies and cronies preferred over task oriented newbs ( ("This is my area, so get out of here", "I work here 5 yrs I know what I'm doing")
    -0 coordination between floor and quality managers (Floor supervisor -> I need numbers but be alert next time,,,, Senior manager -> Why would you NOT care about quality?)

    Advice to Senior ManagementPrefer old guard over new talent = Move jobs to Mexico

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
