I worked at Corel full-time for more than a year

Pros

Was able to work with some very good people
Individual ideas and thinking are encouraged
Compensation and benefits were fair

Cons

Position did not feel secure, as though at any point the position would be eliminated.
There was not much enthusiasm about the product or product releases

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Significant product inovation is needed to keep pace and move ahead of competitors.

    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.
