    Pros

    Good company culture. Good leadership. They provided product-line cross training. I worked with a very good team of field engineers for the automation product. It was the first time I saw a CEO conduct an employee feedback survey and share the results with the company, and also share a plan of action to address the results of the survey.

    Cons

    Field engineer work requires intensive travel.

    Pros

    The engineering was top-notch, from design to testing and implementation.

    Cons

    Treat customers poorly and they will gladly abandon ship.

    Advice to Management

    In a shrinking market, selling on value is a quixotic adventure.

    Pros

    The technology and drive to standardize broadcast automation and put it on a platform readily available without tons of third party stuff is exciting and rewarding, particularly if you enjoy finding root cause and seeing fixes as a result of your work.

    Cons

    Travel was sometimes heavy but that is to be expected during times of peak sales/implementation. Sometimes being on the leading edge requires methodical resolution to bugs and user issues.

    Advice to Management

    Partnerships with large companies from multiple areas of the broadcast realm would be ideal. A broad overview of how different media providers handle daily workflows is super important in developing a robust, all encompassing product.

    Pros

    Hardware products are great e.g cards and routers. President knows the inside out of the company and the competition. Well located own building and free parking.

    Cons

    Software components interfacing with hardware could be improved along with the training process. Salary lower than average on the market.

    Advice to Management

    Company is doing great financially but it seems targets are never met. Why?


  6. Is a good company with a lot of opportunities to grow up

    Pros

    Very strong company in the broadcast field, nice benefits and vacations, social events, nice people too.

    Cons

    Salary is not very fair, sometimes a new person with very low experience in the field can start with a much higher salary that a person with several years of experience in the company and a lot of studies.

    Advice to Management

    give more value to those people with more than 5 years inside the company, is a experience that would take years to be replaced even for the most qualified new employee.

    Pros

    Very friendly work environment, company invests a good fraction in R&D and constantly works on perfecting its products. One of the most fastest growing mid-sized companies in Canada. President is a super nice guy, approachable and hard working.

    Cons

    the only downside are the wages that are somewhat underpaid (overtime is almost not an option) H&R is also very slow in their hiring process and way behind in their employee performance recognition programs.....

    Advice to Management

    invest more in your employees and quit being so cheap at times.

    Pros

    Employees are fairly well treated Company has shown to be stable over time Work environment is fairly pleasant

    Cons

    Miranda is a engineering hardware-driven company. If you are not an engineer in the hardware LOB you're wasting your time. They have little experience, or competence, in designing or selling software. Overall the corporate culture is very staid and boring. Don't work here if you are looking for an exciting, cutting-edge company.
