    I have been working at iDirect Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Being involved with lots of new technology. Friendly environment and nice coworkers. Management is well intentioned even when they make plenty of planning mistakes.

    Cons

    Expected to work 60+ hours every week for several months without extra compensation. Projects are late and managers are in panic/firefighting mode with lot of inefficient decisions. I would not recommend the company to my friends eventhough I would get a $5K referral bonus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at iDirect Technologies

    Pros

    Lots to learn about the satellite communication industry.
    You get to do more than you think. a good experience learned here.
    Some good smart colleagues around.

    Cons

    Some Managers/directors act like kids driving engineers to leave the place.
    Unfairness and disrespect to employees.
    HR department is not for the employees. I feel the place like a big gangster company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on the company growth first before your personal growth.
    Put a process and follow it for god's sake.
    Be fair on applying your promotion guidelines on all employees.
    If 5 engineers left in less than a year complaining about a director. Most likey they are right HR!
