    I have been working at Halogen Software full-time (more than an year)


    The one thing I really don't appreciate about these types of sites is that only disgruntled employees & candidates seem to write reviews because they want some form of revenge on those who, they perceive, have wronged them in some way. I have read the reviews of Halogen Software on this site and need to correct a few points. Halogen is a stable, growing organization that is focusing more and more on their international presence. There is a great Emerging Leader Program, they feel strongly about promoting from within (and do so all the time!), everyone's voices are heard and they proactively manage their staff.

    One reviewer mentioned there has been too many layoffs...there have been NO LAYOFFS whatsoever at Halogen! It is true that they do terminate individuals but that is only ever a last case scenario when all other options are exhausted. The individuals writing these reviews have either been terminated due to poor performance or have left because they are not a fit for the strong corporate culture at Halogen.

    There have also been complaints on this site about compensation. Halogen recently put in place a compensation structure to correct perceived inadequacies regarding compensation. This is one of the many ways that prove that they are moving from a small company to the next stage of their global growth by putting processes and policies in place vs. the ad-hoc management of a start-up organization.

    No organization is perfect and not everyone will agree with management's decisions but Halogen is better than most Ottawa-based organizations (i.e. RIM, Nortel & Alcatel) in terms of making smart choices to ensure the organizations continued success.

    I am proud to be a Halogen employee and recommend this organization to anyone who is looking for professional growth and stability. Halogen is a breath of fresh air in Ottawa which was dominated by failing telecom companies and lazy government employers.


    Top down communication could be improved at times.

    I applied online – interviewed at Halogen Software in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview was great. Face to face not so much. Seemed at time a burden as if manger was going through the motion. HR was great and professional. Reception did not seem very welcoming.
