Pros

Employment is stable, since their products are usually large contracts to other big companies. Work environment is not as competitive as other companies, everyone is friendly and mature. Managers are also understanding and lets you get t he work done. Not a lot of office politics, everyone is about getting a product out.

Cons

If you like a very competitive and high paying environment, then you should look for work in companies similar to Apple. The pay isn't as high as other companies because they are more relaxed.

    Pros

    PMC was not a good place to work in. Too much politics . Sr Management was pretty incompetent. Most of the good work was controlled by people in Burnaby

    Cons

    Too much politics
    All the good work moved to Burnaby
    Managers were bad at schedules.
    Though smart engineers,good process etc

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't concentrate all the work in Burnaby
    Give competitive salaries
    Middle managers need to be better at scheduling.
    More foresight.

    Doesn't Recommend
