    I worked at Sierra Wireless full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Very good benefits
    Good working environment - Good resources as far as test bench and computer systems and new products
    Gym (Basic)
    Interesting work, ability to research and improve your skills

    Cons

    Training was a weak spot: We wound up reading manuals and spent a lot of time trying to figure things out ourselves or trying to re-invent the wheel

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall a positive experience, but more work on a consistent training program would help considerably

    Recommends
    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
