    I worked at DragonWave as a contractor

    Pros

    Smart and supportive colleagues. Good ambiance.

    Outsourcing manufacturing, like in most companies, may bring cost savings but may not be that efficient; and it kills the mood among employees.

    More positive reinforcement. Provide opportunities training for employees.
