worst managed company and worst work environment

Software Engineer (Former Employee)
Toronto, ON (Canada)

I worked at ViXS full-time for more than 3 years

Prosinteresting technologies, and that is about it.
I wish I could say anything else good about the company but I just can't

Consthe worst managed company I have ever seen. Arrogant management, doesn't care about the employees and employee retention. Hires mostly oriental immigrants with low salaries.
The company is trying to compete in the big boys field but is far far behind when it comes to execution and quality, and doesn't stand a chance.
It advertises open positions all the time, but actually has had massive layoffs in the past few months, when the latest and the greatest was a couple of weeks ago.
Very bad workplace. It survived on investor's money and on government grants, but the money is running out.

Advice to Senior Managementclose the the company, the sooner the better. you don't stand a chance.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
