    Pros

    Company culture Team Members - we work as a team! Innovative Products and Solutions - strong proposition for our customers!

    Like any company moving it's way up....lots to do...would like more resources. Believe this will come in time. Headed in the right direction.

    Lack of direction, planning, and adequate staffing levels

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    - Free drinks - Compensation is barely on par with current market conditions - Little red tape

    Cons

    - Their mantra of "work hard, and play harder" is just that. In reality, it equates to "just work harder and harder" until you lose your mind - Lack of direction, and planning; Too much micromanagement - Constant fighting fires with inadequate management and no long term planning - Childish atmosphere with talentless management whose focus is just getting by - Apply the Sandvine values evenly across different divisions - Sink or swim culture is the norm in some divisions

    Advice to Management

    Hire people with well rounded skill set with specific emphasis on people skills; and promote from within (to reduce attrition). Learn and adhere to industry best practices to fix core issues long term. Bandaid solutions are not good enough. Cowboy attitude in running the organization is amateurish at best, and downright shameful considering the growth potential.
