Pros

Above average vacation time (hey it's a Canadian company!)
They try to treat employees with respect (at least in North America)

Cons

It's a mix of many companies they acquired, plagued by poor management. If you're an innovative person looking for an exciting work, this place is not for you.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Think out of the box, get some innovative leaders, commodity business won't survive! You've lost so many chances already, could have been #1 on mobile multimedia apps.

    Pros

    Flexible work environment where the results are the most important thing and not when you do it. I often telecommuted. Note: this was in the US and I do not think that other locations have as much flexibility. The pay was very competitive and benefits ok.

    Cons

    Corel is HQ in Canada with offices in Taiwan, US, and China. They have had many layoffs and have moved most development to Taiwan and China. They laid-off a very experienced team in the US and moved the development to a smaller team in Taiwan with less experience and little knowledge of the code base.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not all engineers are equal. A person with extensive knowledge in the product space can not be replaced with another just because they cost less.

    Pros

    Good place for learning technology. A bunch of good engineers there to work with. All are hardworking and prefessional

    Cons

    Managers try to make you work over time most of the time. Don't have much chance to grow up management-wise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management should give employees opportunity to give feedback. More resource is moving to Taiwan so people start worrying on that
