    I worked at DragonWave full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good salary (at least they didn't cut down our salary in the previous start-up that they purchase)

    Cons

    Nobody really wants to listen to any employee, even to the senior ones,

    Advice to Management

    start listen to your employees if you want to run an healthy company for the long run

    Pros

    The employees are great, loads of really smart people working there. Because it's a smaller company things move much faster and you don't get bogged down in administration.

    Cons

    Management lacks communications skills, most should have moved on years ago. They don't stick up for their employees or engage with them. There has never been any kind of employee performance reviews and some have not seen an increase in pay for years.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your employees more, you have lots of very smart people who you aren't using or listening to. It's called brainstorming! Consider moving on!

    I have been working at DragonWave full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Being the organisation very small the levels and bureaucracy is less.

    Cons

    Being a small company it doesn't have the required breathing space for the employees to rely on the company or make it part of their future plan. They consider it as a place which gives salary this month and a quarter to come.. Nothing more...

    Advice to Management

    Micro management need to come to an end. High performance needs to be evaluated together with whether the heads themselves have the right leadership skills and instill team spirit and belonging in the team. Quite an old sales team with an average age of 45+ kinda...
