I worked at Corel

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

    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

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Some interesting work, good technology, friendly and talented coworkers, reasonable benefits,

    Cons

    Limited opportunities for the future, work is not divided well between overseas offices, projects get moved to other groups with little notice, upper management only wants to make "safe" choices, leadership vacuum leads to lack of coordination among managers, upper management is too dependent on middle managers to know what is going on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep non-manager employees more in the loop about what's going on, talking with each person to hear what they are doing. Also, allow people to take ownership of their work -- it's difficult to be motivated to make a long term investment in your project (work hard or be creative) knowing that your project may be taken away from you at any moment.
