A mediocre company. Good for gaining some experience, but not long-term career growth.

I worked at Absolute Software full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

- Cool product, with an interesting client base
- Good people people with a nice atmosphere
- Great location (Bental IV in Downtown Vancouver... what's not to like?)

Cons

- Lack of focus and direction for product
- Rounds of lay-offs don't give one a terrible sense of long-term job security

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Focus more on the 2-3 year plan, and communicate the reasoning behind strategic objectives
- Try to STICK to those strategic objectives, and communicate why you're straying if necessary
- Check your ego at the door, and do what's right for the business...

    Pros

    No one does what we do, so if you like to geek around it can be fun. Management is loose, so there isn't much pressure.

    Cons

    Compensation is terrible.
    Senior management is not competent or mature.
    Questionable ethics and financial practices.
    Been a money-loser for years. How long can this keep up?
    Comic nepotism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The problem begins and ends with you, so what is there to say?

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO
