    Pros

    Everyone is working towards the same goal - making Mitel #1 in the telephony business. Excellent direction, management and guidance.

    Cons

    Health benefits are among the worst in the market place. Alternatively, it's still better than Obama care.

    I have been working at Mitel Networks full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work environment and challenging opportunities to grow. I had many opportunities to learn new technologies and expand my knowledge on existing technologies. Mitel has industry leading technology and a great R&D group which creates many paths for people to gain knowledge on products.

    Cons

    Somewhat low pay scale but the flexibility makes up for that so I am not sure it is a con. The benefits are not good, no 401k match. Information is hard to obtain on existing and roadmap products making it difficult to pass on solid information to perspective customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More information on company direction would be good.

    Pros

    Flexible work environment and challenging opportunities to grow. Ideal for people who works straight oriented to results. Mitel has a huge potential.

    Cons

    I think the main challenge to consolidate Mitel brand around the world is growth investment on branding strategies at new markets like Latin America, specially on BRICS countries.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great leaders to work with.
