  5. 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.

  6. Aastra has a lot of good people working for the company.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    None.
