    Pros

    Good manager and good people,
    Get the job done quickly and correctly,
    Do what you want and what you need with reasonable requests

    Cons

    Tight budget so you don't have much for the training and learning
    Tight schedule so that you don't have much leisure time. You have to keep up or you will be left by others.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more trainings and learning for the employee to gear up the latest technology and bring the new fresh ideas and innovations to the environment.
    Slow down a little bit to do the right things first then do it right.

    Good work/life balance. Flexible schedule.

    They don't follow software life cycle properly, which causes some time software delivery to get delayed. Don't expect to get high increment...

  6. Good company and people

    I worked at Aastra Technologies

    Pros

    Everyone knows each other, most are very friendly and ready to accommodate you. Many are willing to help when you first start out and there is healthy collaboration in between departments.

    Cons

    Not a lot of movement for employees, and you often find yourself doing two or three jobs. Those who are used to a big office or corporation may not enjoy the experience of a smaller one.

    Pros

    There is a very relaxed work environment. Many of the people feel like family and go out of there way, at times, to help each other.

    Cons

    The salaries are somewhat below average in the industry. Upper management appears to be geared in one direction, while engineering is focused on other products.

    Advice to Management

    None.
