    Management issues, aggressive sales activities with little regard for ability to deliver.

    Software Configuration Manager (Former Employee)
    Gatineau, QC (Canada)

    ProsIt was a very dynamic environment where you had an opportunity to work with great people and leading-edge technology

    ConsThere was a concern that management decisions were made which only considered sales objectives without factoring in the effect they would have on the employees who delivered the service.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Poorly managed. Unable to execute a plan

    Software Developer (Former Employee)
    Gatineau, QC (Canada)

    ProsGreat people with lots of talent and experience. Get to work with next-generation software development tools.

    ConsConstant political battles with Microsoft. Cactus lost every one of them. Managers replaced for speaking the truth. Sweat shop. Deadline-driven approach to product development.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Senior Software Developer

    Disorganized Top Management yet they re-org lower layers every 3 months on a whim

    Project Manager (Former Employee)
    Ottawa, ON (Canada)

    Pros- Good clients
    - Ability to travel
    - wide variety of job experience not just put in 1 small niche

    Cons- Top Management disorganized and desperate to repair company and rather than looking at their own short-comings they re-org middle management every 3 months - to the point that other partners joked about it.
    - They are disceptive to their clients of an 'IP' (base Solution) that doesn't exist.
    - It's a little soap opera of drama and the Top level management like it that way.
    - lacks credibility in the industry
    - have a bad reputation of being a people mill with local headhunters

    Not a company to build a career with. Real swet shop for developers.

    ProsOk to work for if you are a new grad.

    ConsNo room to grow, Definitely wrong people getting all the credits and being promoted.
