Sales (Former Employee)

I worked at WebTech full-time

ProsFantastic team to work with, everyone is extremely helpful and always willing to assist you when you need it. All tools and resources are provided, desk space and office space are very good. Company does allow for personal growth, every year they fund advance studies to an employee. Benefits are generous and work hours are very flexible, they allow you to do some work out of home.

ConsTechnology suite needs to advance a bit faster. But overall great solution

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep going, great work!

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

I have been working at WebTech

ProsExcellent people to work with
Exciting new products
Fast paced industry

ConsUnnecessary, convoluted work process
Little recognition of employee experience or knowledge.
The "Great Divide" between manufacturing personnel and the rest of the company means limited ability for career advancement once in the manufacturing department.

Advice to Senior ManagementManufacturing is an essential part of the companies growth and progression, employees in this department should be valued.

Some really great people but far too stressful

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Burnaby, BC (Canada)

I worked at WebTech full-time

ProsCompetitive salary, great people, monthly lunches, fun holiday parties

ConsLack of work life balance, cut-throat management, stress, minimal vacation time, benefits not as strong as they were when I started, too much staff turn-over

Advice to Senior ManagementBe more transparent. Some of you have a reputation for not being above board. The communication from senior managers is abysmal.

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

Squandered Potential

Sr. Manager (Former Employee)
Vancouver, BC (Canada)

I worked at WebTech full-time for more than 3 years

ProsThere are still some very talented people at Webtech Wireless, many brought on during the boom years when there was a real drive and vision in the company management - as dysfunctional as it may have been. Overall it was a pleasant and fun place to work, even if there was an overwhelming feeling that things just weren't going anywhere.

ConsFor a time they were leaders in their field with some real vision. Currently they've lost their way and the competition has left them behind. The company is now managed by bean counters, more interested in quarterly results and an eventual cash-out. The morale in the company reflects that and most have their resumes at the ready. Quite a few good people have left over the last 2 years.

Advice to Senior ManagementManagement has to change, I don't think there's a way to turn it around with this crew.

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