I have been working at CorelDoesn't RecommendNegative OutlookApproves of CEODoesn't RecommendNegative OutlookApproves of CEO
Company has great people, incredibly loyal and smart. Still sells great brands - Word Perfect, WinZip, Roxio, PaintShop Pro, Pinnacle Studio. Marketing is challenging with PC and Mac software sales declining...but working on the Corel team has been a great experience in integration and co-marketing. Decent benefits, and flex hours too!
Tough situation to have to cut every year despite hitting sales targets and goals within the company. Communication is lacking due to it being a private company and each division was unaware really, of what the other was doing. Staying focused and motivated was challenging so it really came down to the people you were working with which made it ok.
Advice to Management
Communicate. Realize people are more than just money makers - make decisions that benefit all aspects of a company in addition to the bottomline.

- Declined OfferNegative ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied through other source. The process took 5 weeks – interviewed at Corel (Ottawa, ON (Canada)) in July 2015.
The first stage was an informal discussion for about 1h The second interview a couple of days later was more intense with more in-depth and focused questions for 2h with the team. I was asked to beforehand to prepare a small business model exercise. I was then contacted on the phone by HR with standard behavioral questions. They checked my references and I got to meet the CEO and had a nice chat. I had another informal meeting a couple of weeks later on. The whole process took a good month due to vacation days. They finally sent me a very low balled offer, including a very large ratio of incentives and bonuses (way more than the typical 10% for this type of position) and pretty standard benefits. Countered, and was turned down flat...
