Not all is perfect

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsInformal 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

ConsOverworked 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 Senior ManagementTry to retain your talent
