Mostly positive.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Ottawa, ON (Canada)

ProsMany top notch employees, including a number of stellar employees from the Nortel CVAS acquisition.
Lots of opportunity to work with cutting edge technology
Very customer focused.

ConsSometimes feel like we are an asset that is being "sweated" by our private equity owners, principally One Equity Partners / JP Morgan Chase. That is, the company is managed on a quarterly basis, with a short leash (e.g. if revenues are lower than expected in a particular quarter, cost cutting is immediately announced).
Some functions are understaffed, to keep costs down.
Not very progressive with respect to work at home employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementPay attention to employee satisfaction, as this typically has a direct bearing on customer satisfaction. As a minimum, conduct an annual survey and share the results.
