    I have been working at Sandvine full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    I work for the QA team, which is very strong. Almost everything is automated and cutting edge. There are people in this team that are very bright and know a tonne.

    Cons

    Information flow from Product Developers to QA Developers is poor. Often QA need to ask Product Dev. many clarifying questions before we can start automating our stuff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring up the product related knowledge within QA team members.

    I have been working at Sandvine full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    A lot of smart people work in Engineering (Programmers and QA, most of who are also developers).
    Unbelievingly cutting edge technology. Literally will be exposed to ideas and tech. that no other company anywhere has tried yet.

    Cons

    Might not be the best environment for people who need a lot of support and guidance (i.e., documentation is something not clear).
    You are expected to be self starter who can figure things out, investigate when things go wrong, and drive processes without needing to be spoon fed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Refresh internal docs.

    Pros

    Good management and smart people. They treat interns like full-time employees. Great work-life balance. Feeling of being a part of the team.

    Cons

    Cannot come up with any cons. Senior co-workers are sometimes not much helpful because of the intense work. Challenging for junior programmers.
