    Great products and team

    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - PLM Consultant  in  Montreal, QC (Canada)
    Former Employee - PLM Consultant in Montreal, QC (Canada)

    Pros

    - Exposure to PLM products such as CATIA, ENOVIA, etc. heavily used in many fields of engineering
    - Friendly and supportive teammates
    - Possibility to travel and consult at different customers worldwide, if interested
    - Great office location near metro station (in Old Montreal)

    Cons

    - Low pay compared to industry standards
    - Very high turnover in the Engineering department. If you have a background in Mechanical Engineering, you might not stay very long in the company, unless you are willing to change departments and/or willing to work more in the IT/computer engineering field (since it's a software company).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the strategy of the Engineering department; it's bleeding out.

    Good place to work, but non management positions are very underpaid

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Montreal, QC (Canada)
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Montreal, QC (Canada)

    Pros

    Great location down town, friendly environment. Most managers and supervisors are open and approachable.

    Cons

    Company is taking advantage of interns, paying minimum salary.
    All administrative, non management positions are very underpaid.
    Management is hiding behind all those complex HR policies, 50-page presentations with graphs and calculations that make no sense and only purpose of which is not to give you salary increase. They do appreciate your hard work and accomplishments, you might even get an award of some sort, but don't expect a decent salary increase.
