    not bad for new immigrant

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

    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)

    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

    Lots of potential, but poor utilization of the skills and talents of employees.

    Engineer (Current Employee)
    Toronto, ON (Canada)

    ProsDynamic workplace. Lots of freedom to structure and schedule your work. Adequate opportunities to contribute to the organization. A sufficiently motivated employee can do a lot of very different things, and contribute in many different ways.

    ConsCould be more customer focussed instead of being reactive. Scope for improvement in project planning, execution and information sharing within the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry to adopt a strategic view instead of a tactical view.
    Analyze the current development processes, and identify operational challenges that could stifle scaling up over the next 5 years.
    Train people to do their job effectively, and share the vision with them.
