    Pros

    Flexibility and ownership to pursue job tasks. Good support by managers who are encouraging and always on the lookout for me to develop in various ways.

    Cons

    Nothing much to say about cons really, its really about who you get to work with and how they support you along the way.

    Pros

    This company is client/employee focused, you could work from home and still make decent salary.

    Cons

    It is completely commission based, if you strive hard to develop a disciplined approach to sales you will make it, entry level sales agent will find it difficult to breakeven without much experience in this job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    management should consider paying some form of salary/commission and invest in more training for the entry level recruits

    Treat your people better. Improve their pay.

    Management let us do our jobs without interference
    Salary and benefits were satisfactory

    As off site employees we felt removed from the "real" Tucows
    Communication was difficult when management was in another country

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep employee morale and communication high on the list
    Management team should talk to all levels of employees more often

    Pros

    Good culture......especially if you like food! Work-life balance is pretty good. Best part of working here is the great people. Some really dedicated, really smart coworkers.

    Cons

    Not a lot of recognition for your efforts. Very developer-centric. Doesn't seem to be a plan for career advancement in most departments.

    Relatively small company with huge ambitions, but failing frequently in operation and management.

    Pros

    Nicest coworkers I've ever had, felt like a real family. I had the opportunity to acquire new skills and improve my technical knowledge.

    Cons

    Hard to deal with the very poor communication between departments. It makes you feel that there is no real, cohesive unity, as if there were three or four companies in one. Some managers I had the chance to work with deserve praises for their technical expertise and their sincere and continuous efforts to deliver great results in time, but some others need to probably go back to school and enroll in a 'business management' program.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to upper management: please understand that the most valuable asset a company can have is its employees!
