    I have been working at CounterPath Corporation full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Core team believes in the product. World recognizes the client as premium Unified Communications & Collaboration in the market. Excellent team atmosphere.

    Cons

    Geographical disbursement of various offices can be challenging, but... Bria helps to minimize this challenge.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course with Enterprise (Financial, Government, & Healthcare) strategy; build SMB business via freemium model.

    I have been working at CounterPath Corporation full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I've been here for less than 1 year and what I can say unequivocally is this company has the right product, at the right time, has an excellent vision and a passionate leadership team beginning with Donovan. Very much an open door policy, he gives you the tools to compete and thrive. Has a can-do attitude who reaches out to the team with the desire to make a positive impact. Nothing prosaic about this company. It's...

    Cons

    Seriously? Don't have anything significant to complain about. Maybe constructing an advisory board with representatives from major verticals (financial, retail, healthcare, etc.).

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring sales talent with endless energy with a desire to swing-for-the fences. Stay focused on all verticals. More strategic partnerships as well.

    "Vibrant small company"

      Approves of CEO

      I have been working at CounterPath Corporation

      Pros

      As a small company, Counterpath doesn't have many "management only" managers, and not much office politics. Most managers/team leaders are very technical hands-on, I feel this ensures that most engineers working here are good at what they do. I have been in this industry for more than a decade and have worked with a lot of engineers, some of Counterpath engineers are the best I have met. It's always great to work with...

      Cons

      Long hours, it's not easy for small companies to survive, so everyone is expected to do a lot. Technical wise is demanding, and you have to keep learning constantly to stay competent for your job, not for everyone. Benefits could be better.

      "Grown technically and creatively while working on industry leading products"

        Positive Outlook

        I have been working at CounterPath Corporation full-time

        Pros

        Work on industry leading products for unified communications from the ground up -- real time audio/video media stacks, user interfaces, device management, back end servers, etc. Motivated individuals can have a big impact in a friendly working environment. Horn your skills with latest tools and technology. Management and culture respect work-life balance and family time.

        Cons

        It could be daunting to get up to speed with all the technology.

        I have been working at CounterPath Corporation

        Pros

        Cutting edge technology, everybody can participate in business planning. Very good compensation and benefits package for a start up.

        Cons

        Lack of structure -- both your time and the company as a whole. A little too corporate for a small company.

        Advice to Management

        Referee internal debates -- listen, then choose a course and insist everybody follow that course. Too often people with good ideas that are nevertheless in opposition (or at least not coordinated) are allowed to pursue the separate courses to the detriment of the company. This is a leadership issue.

        Constant pressure to produce and deliver in cadence with a quarterly quota.

        Advice to Management

        Continue to innovate for the future but put more emphasis on existing customer success. More outreach to key market segments to drive new business.

        I have been working at CounterPath Corporation full-time

        Pros

        Great culture with monthly TGIF get togethers and related social events. Engineering team has built the worlds best technology in its field. Top sales people make really good money (so they tell me) but they have had to work hard to get there. Team cohesion is generally quite good. Good stock program and benefits program compared to most Vancouver tech companies.

        Cons

        Company is constantly evolving and is best suited for someone who wants to dig in and build something. This is not a company for people who do not have the capacity or patience to understand the business/ industry or are looking for a static gig. Things are fluid, but see how hard work and perserverence pays off. As an engineer, need to connect to the sales team to learn.

        Advice to Management

        Marketing team needs resources I think.
