    Great place to get experience if you're willing to working hard

    Software Developer II (Current Employee)
    Mississauga, ON (Canada)

    ProsYou will be given the opportunity to go from design, development to operational support. You will be given the tools but you have to dig in deep yourself to solve problems and do them quickly. Immediate managers and team leads are great, will support you genuinely. Everyone around you is very busy, so if you have specific questions you'll get help. You will be recognized for the good work you do. Once you are accustomed to the team you have good flexibility in terms of work/life balance.

    ConsThere used to be a major disconnect between the upper and Immediate managers, the middle management was chaotic, and have heard of many false promises. It seems to have gotten better over the last year but I'm still not confident about them. The ramp-up time is short and not everyone has the time to help, which is sometimes stressful.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUpper management seem to be doing better job over the past year so I would encourage to keep going in right direction.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Sweatshop where I learned all the hard lessons of coding

    Software Developer (Former Employee)
    Toronto, ON (Canada)

    ProsGreat people and lots of fun to work here. I loved the atmosphere and moving up the ranks very quickly. My first job out of school and it taught me a lot about what it took to get a product working.

    ConsLots of turn-over, so there wasn't much in the way of stability. Random layoffs were a big problem that I would've like to not see happen so often. The monthly company meeting was a bit of a joke.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI love the fact that my shares are worth something after all these years! Great job.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Results Oriented and High Skilled Environment

    Software Programmer (Current Employee)
    Mississauga, ON (Canada)

    Pros-It's all about the work, you get credit for how fast you learn and if you are able to deliver

    -No one will get pissed of at you if you finish you work quick, they will give you as much work as you can take

    -QAs here are the best i had ever seen, if I was a little less than I am, I will get stormed by them technically

    -seen quite a few smart people here although not everyone is

    -there is opportunity for advancement if you perform well

    -it's a huge company that bought out Nokia offering a results oriented culture

    -flex hours really helped after you had proved yourself

    -nice coworkers and alot of hard working people

    -you get recognized for your skills if you are very good at what you do

    Cons-it the majority of the managers are good but there are exceptions

    -there are alot meetings to attend and it occurs during early in the morning as meetings often include coworkers from India that are in different time zones

    -there is alot of talk going on about system developement as I only beleive actions speaks louder than words

    -The overtime I did was the most I ever done in my life as usaully OT is not a problem for me but the OT here really took a toll on me (unpaid BTW)

    -I got thrown into something that I had never done in my life and was expected to learn it all on my own, the training support I got was ridiculous, I got given a resource that didnt know anything about the technical piece I was working on and was told that I was dumb when I never did this before which I had pulled through myself and a little help from one of the good architects in the later stages of training, but glad I finally felt some love from the company to know that someone actually cares

    -coworkers were good at what they do, but they had so much work that no one wants to answer my questions when i was learning and one dude even tell me wrong answers for me to know that I should depend on myself

    -technical pieces gets outsourced easier, so if you are not the best, you can get laid off due to outsourcing and the dudes in India arent the brightest people, just hard working and cheap to hire

    Advice to Senior Management-keep your hard working culture consistent throughout the company

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
