not bad for new immigrant

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Toronto, ON (Canada)

I worked at ViXS

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

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

No family life, only work, good for immigrants with limited language skills

Design Engineer (Current Employee)
Toronto, ON (Canada)

I have been working at ViXS

ProsLots and lots of work, there is no way not to learn. My manager is easy going, always cheerful, easy to communicate to. They provide jobs to immigrants unlike most canadian companies. The founder is immigrant and is very intelligent person.

ConsSince mostly immigrants works here, my project leader who is white always feels the need to assert himself. He often raises his voice which is very unpleasant. I feel he takes credit for the work that I performed because of my limited English skills. I don't know how to solve this problem otherwise all ok

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work in launching new products. Increase the compensation to match with the industry standard. Talk one to one with the team members and do not get fooled when immigrants can not speak up.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
