Bad Management

Software Engineer (Former Employee)
Toronto, ON (Canada)

ProsWell paid jobs, compared to market. 9-5 hours.

ConsSome incompetence at higher level. Corporate managers have no clue about tech. No growth opportunities (old boys club). They do acquisitions of smaller companies and drive those products straight into the ground. Stories went around about higher management using foul language in all hands meetings (disgusting). People lost jobs after many layoffs.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop buying tech companies whose product you cannot sell. Give people a chance to advance in their careers. Cleanup your language.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
