Lost Opportunities Company

Senior Electrical Engineer (Former Employee) Burnaby, BC (Canada)

ProsLots of Test equipment. Very slow-paced engineering development work. Good place to learn practical electronics (Hardware) and embedded (software) debugging.
It was number 2 (Lower mainland-BC) in 2000 among electronics manufacturers. But soon lost ground to Xantrex-Schneider. Lots of free time for look-busy-do-nothing.

ConsOne of the worst top managements i have ever seen in last 10 years (US + Canada). Some good-for-nothing have control over engineering development. Junky managers have really taken things from bad-to-worse.
Unable to fill asenior power electronics engineer position since last 10 years. They use the same advertisement (again and again) with different recruiters.
They will fire you one week before your annual bonus is due (It is their standard practice).

Advice to Senior ManagementDo a project which is achieveable, rather than reverse engineering half finished designs of other companies. Find a Team lead who has worked in US on product design development. Give him full powers for choosing the design AND donot interfere.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
