    Pros

    Possess really smart, professional and senior engineers, and core hardware technologies of SoC. Health care covered well and colleagues are grossly kind, easy-going and helpful

    Cons

    As a junior engineer in team, unclear responsibility reporting mechanism. It is not a modern entrepreneur's culture, but to say workshop's style.

    Pros

    work life balance really depends on project and individual person,
    compensation is ok. time off policy is flexible.

    Cons

    don't know the value of this company yet, and company's culture as well.
    atmosphere in company is not so good. For employee, job is job and nothing more than that.

    Pros

    It is really not bad for new immigrant. Because it is very hard to get first professional experience in Canada.

    Cons

    But the payment is quite low comparing to other company. And because lots of OT there, you have no time to accompany your faimily.
