Pros

- Oppurtunity to learn - Oppurtunity to grow - Reasonable pay - Friendly management - Indoor games (table tennis, pool table etc) - Good experienced top management in the field around CEOs - Casual dress code (even shorts do)

Cons

- Unpaid extra hours - No job security - Pricey unworthy health benefits (around 5% of your pay and only covers around 70%) - No retirement plan

Advice to Management

- Trust your employess and try to retain key people (you a re in HCM business, God dammit!) - Go more transparent with your employess - Stick to your long term planning - Let employee feel they worke hard (lets just share 10% of your pure income among employees but not theone in senior mangement) - For God sake don't server pizza in company wide lunch meetings :)

    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 Management

    Try to retain your talent Less micro-management


  2. Good place to build your career
