    I have been working at Forensic Technology full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Contributes to a product that helps police tackle gun crime, relaxed atmosphere, flexible hours, good yearly bonuses tied to company-wide performance targets that are visible and attainable

    Cons

    A lack of upward mobility in some departments, some Sales-driven choices lead to solutions being implemented that end up costing more than they should.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For the most part keep doing what you're doing

    I have been working at Forensic Technology

    Pros

    Open minded, cares about it's employee, friendly environment and is concerned about wellness and balance of work time and family. Awarded 2 times title for one of the 50 best managed company in Canada. Flexible work hours.

    Cons

    offices not located down town, but very accessible too. Free parking, but public transportation is a bit lacking in this area. No policies about teleworking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the plunge and work out some official policy about teleworking and offer more opportunities for job growth and career progress. Re-align the IT salaries with the true market value for some positions.

    Difficult to move around in the company. Majority of people engaged were seniors people with a lot of experience. Good luck for student that are junior developers.

    I have worked in better environments, it has a sweat shop mentality

    I have been working at Forensic Technology

    Pros

    - Some good people.
     - 35 hr work week

    Cons

    No benefits, no pension, expensive insurance. No training. The physical office space is below average, dirty carpets, bad office chairs.

    A lot of internal bureaucracy. There is resistance to improving software & procedures. The main priority is to sell as many systems as possible.

    Too cheap to spend money on improving system reliability.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some managers have been here too long and do not know how things are in the real world.
    Compensate your employees.

    I worked at Forensic Technology

    Pros

    Working with very bright people
    Team spirit
    Technology
    Overall a fun place to work
    Great products
    Very innovative
    Global clientele

    Cons

    Fringe benefits could be better
    Largest client can be a pain to deal with
    Location is not the greatest in the city (public transit access).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall, I really miss working at FTI, and think it's a great company to work for. Permitting more flexible working arrangements like telecommuting would be great.
