Good company, lousy market to be in to get shareholder value

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Markham, ON (Canada)

I worked at Redline Communications full-time for more than 10 years

ProsGreat location from a commute perspective
Tremendous team of engineers and product marketeers

ConsCEO is an issue (Melka); doesn't understand industry
Former CEO (Sifri) too much under the control of CTO (Moldoveanu)

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to build great products
Focus on markets that can deliver consistent volumes
Re-evaluate your market segments and geographical segments to reduce risk

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

I had a bad experience in Redline Communications

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Redline Communications

ProsMaybe a place to start if you are a junior looking to gain some experience.

Cons- not even a room to have lunch. There is a small kitchen, with no place to sit down to eat. Everybody heats its lunch in microwave and come to eat at his desk.
- salary freezing since 2008
- toxic environment with a lot of politics

Advice to Senior Management- listen to your employees and treat them well.
- be more professional and less political
- have a kitchen with places to eat lunch, not letting employees eating at their desk.

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

Beware, this place is a work-camp

Sales/Marketing (Current Employee)
Toronto, ON (Canada)

I have been working at Redline Communications

ProsIt's a high technology company, with proprietary patents in a growth industry. Many colleagues are top notch people. The brightest and the best. If you have a good report that defends and protects you it can be a good place to work.

ConsIt's a work-camp. Everything is a panic. Poor planning. Management does not mean what they say. They are for the most part arrogant and incompetent. Bonuses, as with AIG, are paid first to the chiefs, then if anything is left over employees might get something. Not focused on growing the company organically. Highly political environment. Adversarial relationships are encourages by management. The employee that screams the loudest usually gets their way.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to you employees. Make strategies that work and stick to them.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
