    Uncertainty

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Toronto, ON (Canada)

    ProsExcellent product line, heavy investments in R&D keeps product line fresh and leading edge.

    ConsCompany has been sold twice in less than 4 years, 20% or staff was laid off a couple of years ago, focus seems to be on buying and selling the company and little else. Uncertainty of future is a worry. Used to have vibrant team environment with active social extra curriculars, that's all been lost.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLook at what you had a few years ago, what worked and what didn't, and make changes. Learn from history.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    “Airport transit” frame of mind

    Engineering (Former Employee) Mississauga, ON (Canada)

    Pros- Good line of product,
    - High percentage of R&D people ,
    - HR tries “to show they care”, explore various routes but at the end all is decided by money (the lack of it to be precise).

    Cons- Transitory feeling across the company: people come and go ( or easily laid off)
    - Very few “oldies” (people who stayed more than 3-5 years).
    - Lack of clear & transparent processes

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

    Avoid this company if you know what's good for you....

    Engineer (Current Employee) Mississauga, ON (Canada)

    Pros- good benefits package
    - CEO was fired due to poor performance, so one less ego in the company to deal with

    Cons- long hours, work life balance means nothing
    - company is in financial crisis and have let go more than a quarter of its employees
    - management can be very two-faced and ego driven
    - CEO was fired due to poor performance of the company

    Advice to Senior Management- be more appreciative to employees
    - stop treating employees like slave workers

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

    Great Place to Work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsMany opportunities, diverse product offering, travel possible, career counselling, social events, environmentally conscious, great business vision, forward thinking.

    ConsSales are down, some product lines are not doing well, budgets are tight so we need to be aware of further restrictions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementChange from a "me too" methodology back to a forerunner type of company. Give up on product lines that are consistently not producing.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
