A place where work hard, play hard is often quoted but they only ever expect you to work hard, harder, and insanely hard

I have been working at Sandvine

Pros

Smart people, high tech, difficult problems to solve, a really dedicated group of employees

Cons

Poor work environment. More work than you can handle and management only seems to be concerned with making the company and products look good without concern for their most valuable asset -- their employees. All the really good people have left and "founderitis" seems to have set in. The guys at the top don't seem to know how to take the company to the next level and don't realize this even though the employees all see it.

Benefits are barely on par with everyone else, and if you are liked you'll do well but if you have ideas that don't fit the mold you are marked and will never succeed no matter what you do.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Let someone else take over the company before it runs into the ground.

    Pros

    Great company, very transparent, lots of opportunities

    I tell people that it is what it make it out to be. The management embraces empowering people who have a good idea and want to execute upon it.

    Still growing in a hot market

    Cons

    In a very competitive market, so lots of pressure some days.

    Still learning how to be a global company.

    Headquarters is far from the airport.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing. Its a great place to work.
