    Pros

    Jay has done a great job of turning around the company from where it was before he came. There have been departures at the executive level which may look bad to investors, but the change has been positive. New management are driving towards a more strategic, innovative culture that will produce results. It's a different strategy, that should attract a different class of investor.

    Cons

    We need more people in the company who have a background in surgical medical device product development.

    We need to work more closely with surgeons during product development.

    We need to improve our reputation with investors/industry.

    Advice to Management

    Please review each person in the organization, identify the true leaders, and give them the formal leadership opportunities to help you drive this company towards profitability and commercial success. Reorg now, past performance is the best indicator of future results. There are many who are passionate and working hard to make IMRIS a $8/share stock again, but there are also some who are weighing down the organization with their negativity, lack of clinical knowledge, lack of industry knowledge, lack of teamwork, and lack of optimism. Please do not let the latter drive away the former.

    Pros

    The laid back work environment, cafeteria, the fitness center/showers, the flexible schedule, and above all, health and life benefits, and the thought of the good outcome of the patients that get treated with out equipment.

    Cons

    Lack of direction and accountability. There is no real managed structure in certain departments where structure is everything. The leadership is more worried about getting things done quick rather than doing it right and making sure it's well thought out and documented properly. Documentation needs major attention.

    Advice to Management

    Be more proactive in holding your employees accountable for the output of quality deliverables and the time it takes to reach specific goals. All departments need attention in this area.

    Pros

    The company offers great benefits and a flexible work schedule. The location is good for commuting and the building is well maintained.

    Cons

    There is a surprisingly disproportionate ratio of managers to workers at IMRIS. There seems to be too little work for too many people, and I've personally observed employees abusing the "flexible work schedule" and collecting a salary with virtually no output, all the while getting approval from the management.

    This seems to be no way to productively run a business.

    Advice to Management

    Forget about your current style of management and incentive and start holding employees accountable. Begin with time accounting; a 40-hour work week is a reasonable expectation. Make the employees show how much time they put in, and have them account for what they did while they were here.

    Pros

    Working on bleeding edge systems that push the boundaries of medical imaging. Limitless job satisfaction when you see first hand the effect these systems give to patient care and tumor recession. Great group of people to work with.

    Cons

    The travel makes many nights sleeping in a hotel room. But on the same coin you keep your points to take nice vacations for next to nothing.

    Pros

    Products are innovative and unique...

    Cons

    Poor leadership in Canada & US have lead to a loosing business model; never profitable in history of company; poor cash management, unable to invest in necessary business tools, and inept at continuos improvement in key processes.

    Advice to Management

    Employee/financial future is bleak unless either acquired; discontinue setting unrealistic expectations for investors and blaming employees for failure to meet. Have courage to be truthful to the market and employees.

    Pros

    I have only been at the company for a few years, but it has lived up to all my expectations. The CEO shares what is happening within the company and is not afraid to tell the truth. Due to this open policy, you understand what is happening within the company, and why certain decisions are made.

    Most importantly, there is a genuine atmosphere of collaboration and nobody is trying to get ahead. Working here has been a great experience, and has really helped to confirm that there are good companies out there.

    Cons

    The only downside to the company is that the technology has not been accepted in the medical space as a necessity. Once that happens, the company will be able to grow and expand beyond the small company that it is today.
