I worked at Corel as a contractor (less than an year)

Pros

It was a co-op job. In my third year. Started off great, although I thought it was a little slow. But it was my first job in the field, so I'm sure they weren't expecting me to hit the ground running anyway.

Cons

My hiring manager got laid off. At the same, I was supposed to get a few terms out of it but because of the cutbacks, my contract was not renewed. (I was supposed to get a few terms out of it.)

    I have been working at Corel

    Pros

    The best thing about Corel are it's people. Due to downsizing, the ones left are true professionals with great flair. For a software corporation of its size, its scale of operations is quite extensive and this is all due to the quality of its employees.

    If you are a junior to intermediate level person who wishes to grow, this is a great place as you will be working with world-class professionals with a can-do attitude to everything.

    Cons

    Very little room for advancement. Management hold onto their positions tightly and keep their employees from evolving into leadership roles.

    If you are a senior-level person, you will find it frustrating at the least.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to retain your high quality employees, you need to provide them opportunities for advancement.

    I have been working at Corel

    Pros

    Good group of highly skilled people that enjoy their work and their products. Decent perks, work flexibility, and consistent perfromance recognition throughout.

    Cons

    Recent history of investor purchase, delisting, relisting, delisting again. Very tight ship with little room or budget for innovation. Culture of "me too" products. High executive aversion to risk.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to foster more innovation at a low level. Create more turnover in the employees to bring in fresh experiences and skills.
