Pros

Great industry and very safe organization to work in terms of longevity. Customers are stickied to the product making it difficult to lose revenue from main revenue stream, so the stability, while can appear unstable, is very safe from going under. There are pockets of greatness within the organization that once aboard these teams the opportunities and experiences are very valuable for future development. The compensation and benefits for the staff are great, and are distributed to every level of the organization. This includes 3 weeks vacation, a great health spending account, RRSP matching plans and a shutdown during the Christmas holidays that do not reflect your personal vacation time.

Cons

Lack of leadership and support amongst parts of the mid-senior management team making it difficult to promote change. Organization as a whole has challenges learning from their mistakes. Half of the organization was working to win, the other half not engaged and more concerned with protecting themselves making it a challenging environment to work. Understaffed in certain departments for an organization of their reputation, callibre and ranking in the industry. Overstaffed in other areas. Slow to execute on great ideas which continuously makes them second rate when they used to be considered pioneers. That makes for a morale killing experience.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You have great ideas, start executing and delivering in a timely manor.

    Pros

    This company is client/employee focused, you could work from home and still make decent salary.

    Cons

    It is completely commission based, if you strive hard to develop a disciplined approach to sales you will make it, entry level sales agent will find it difficult to breakeven without much experience in this job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    management should consider paying some form of salary/commission and invest in more training for the entry level recruits

    Pros

    Good culture......especially if you like food! Work-life balance is pretty good. Best part of working here is the great people. Some really dedicated, really smart coworkers.

    Cons

    Not a lot of recognition for your efforts. Very developer-centric. Doesn't seem to be a plan for career advancement in most departments.
