    No room for growth for entry level positions.

    Technical Analyst (Current Employee)
    Newark, CA

    ProsThe atmosphere at the Newark location is very close and employees here are very respectful and team oriented.

    ConsThe compensations and raises they give anually/yearly is way below the average market. As an employee working here for almost 5 years my total raise from my starting pay to what I earn now has been $0.75!

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe open to suggestions from all levels to help improve certain departments. Help appoint leads very all departments and motivate employees with better compensation and promotional opportunities.

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

    Software Test Developer

    Software Test Developer (Co-op) (Current Employee)
    Richmond, BC (Canada)

    ProsIt was a good work environment, people were friendly and welcoming. Generally everyone's helpful in bringing you up to speed and answering any questions. The offices were nice and comfortable, and the cafeteria had subsidized food.

    ConsThe manager did a lot of micro-managing. The work was pretty repetitive after a while because it was a lot of routine testing on the same products.
