    Great people!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Vancouver, BC (Canada)

    ProsVery family-oriented culture and people are super nice. Management is easy to talk to and listens to employees very well.

    ConsWith the recent growth expectation, the work-life balance has suffered bit, but with the investment in tools and resources, I think it will improve in the next few months.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBit more investment in employee training would be great.

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

    Dated but solid Product, Startup mentality.

    (Former Employee) Vancouver, BC (Canada)

    ProsSome truly great people.
    Donuts on fridays.
    cheap pizza once a month.

    ConsThere are individuals in key management positions that are very weak.
    The Product was innovative, and forward thinking, but in the last few years has become dated.
    Enhancements are behind the trend, and not prioritized.
    Wages are below average. Processes are weak.
    Focus on outsourcing to India resulted in quality issues.

    Advice to Senior ManagementProblems are widely accepted and not addressed.
    C-suite push HR to focus on PR - "best employer" awards, and videos when staff aren't appreciated.
    Some long serving staff have been installed as managers but lack management expertise, resulting in re-enforced bad behaviours, disorganized staff and attrition problems.

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

    Modern swet shop, No labour rules applied !

    Programmer (Former Employee) Vancouver, BC (Canada)

    ProsTrying to keep up with Technology, but stuck in XML,.net 2.0, cannot get out. If you want MASTER XSLT,XML (15 years old technology) , yes go ahead send a resume.
    Out sourced jobs to India (helping indian economy, counted as pros ? ). Have muffins every friday !!

    ConsI read other reviews, those programmers must love old technology !!. Salary sucks,you might get 65-70k if you are a senior. Max raise 1500. Projects get outsourced to India, Lots of IT guys on work permits .(unbelievable !!, even sys admins, wanna be programmers ), they some how manage go through immigration loop holes. No over time what so ever,NON never got time in liue or money. required to work 10, hours a day is usual for a programmer

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere is thing called 8 hour work day, if you work anything more than that you suppose to pay a thing called 'Over time' ????.Ever heard of it ?
    I am pretty sure other programmers who have commented here are either fakes,or rich !!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Software Developer

    Software Engineer (Current Employee) Vancouver, BC (Canada)

    ProsGood, friendly, colleagues. Most of the colleagues are dedicated to their work. The company have a social once a month. The company will try to keep up with latest technologies and will pay for your certification exams and study materials. The company have few after hours sports or entertainment programs and also sponsors other social / community programs.

    ConsLong or odd hours because you will need to coordinate with other offices in Europe and Asia; salary is in the low end for the amount of work done. It is hard to propose any improvement or very slow to implement any improvement. You have to be on the ball to be able bring the project through. This company is not for unskilled or slow learning candidates
