Pros

Decent wages
Great people to work with (Burnaby, BC)
Great stock options for earlier employees
Excellent range of products that sell well

Cons

Poor management skills: Lack of communication, no performance reviews, evaluations and career path planning, does not value employees
No sense of loyalty and respect - if they do not need you anymore, you are either demoted or coerced to resign
Highly political - you have to be part of the right clique to succeed. Different regions are in a political warfare against each other
Work environment could be better,can be more tidy
Lack of team building events

Advice to Management

Clean up your management team! VP's and upper management need to get their acts together. Hire leaders that value and respect their subordinates. Political tension between regions is a sure way to drive the company down. Streamline process and procedures to have uniformity on all regions. As a global company, all regions need to be consistent with policies and procedures, otherwise the customers get confused.
