    I have been working at IMRIS full-time (more than a year)

    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.

    I have been working at IMRIS full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    New CEO driving the business to efficiency. Recent corporate move to Minneapolis has enabled the recruitment of talented people, especially in engineering. Strong marketing organization improved many strategic/operational aspects of the company. Interesting problems everyday, with complex products which will disrupt the market once they are launched. Lots of opportunity to improve the business since it has moved out of Winnipeg.

    Cons

    IT infrastructure needs improvement across the board. Many people in key roles lack the experience and/or attitude to make this company great. Human resources are not balanced with the workload.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a close look at VPs and above who have been with the company for a while. They will perpetuate the culture of the old IMRIS. The company needs to move forward with a fresh start. Take measures to show appreciation to top talent and retain them for many years.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
