    Pros

    Informal environment
    Great group of people. Employees are from different backgrounds. People are fun.
    Company is doing great right now, so they are hiring a lot of help.
    Company tries to create a fun environment
    Company seems more organized than it ever was and is trying to simplify the jobs in a few departments
    Creative solutions
    Good place to start your career

    Cons

    Overworked people
    Crazy deadlines
    No thank yous for working late
    Unpaid overtime
    Ridiculous benefits (5% of your pay, 70% reimbursed). Keeps on getting lower with the time you spend in the company.
    3 weeks vacations that include 2 weeks vacation (mandatory in Quebec) and 1 week of sick leave (mandatory in Quebec). There are no sick or personal days.
    The more years you spend in the company, the less likely you are to get promoted.
    Company does not know how to handle change.
    Company does not use Performance review for anything.
    Company always goes through a hiring spell, then fires most of the new people who were hired.
    We are entering a new recession, so the highest earners will most likely go first
    Company does not retain their knowledge, most veterans have either quit or have been let go.
    Salaries in departments other than RnD are much lower than the market

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to retain your talent
    Less micro-management
