Pros

Health insurance package is my favourite thing about Celestix Networks. Employer covers health, vision and dental, this was critical for my counter parts in the states.

Cons

Lost upper management who gave control of organization to incompetent CEO. No structure at all, hostile, no sense of team, commercial workers who act like they are doing you a favour by being your colleague. Management got rid of the trash, the talent left or planning to leave.

Advice to Management

Bring back a real CEO who is technical. Hire a industry RESPECTED business person to compensate for the commerical tasks. Not a CEO who is neither technical nor commerical.

    I have been working at Celestix Networks full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    New management, new attitude. Very pro-active, roll up your sleaves management. Good energy at HQ, with the entire company ready to take over the world.

    Love the new management. Very interested in success! The new management has the desire, skills and experience to get the team there. Overall, the company has strong commitment to customers, employees, and the products.

    Cons

    Must shake off the ill-will from the old management. Let the world know Celestix has changed and is reinvigorated.

    Advice to Management

    Never overlook loyal customers who have helped keep you alive during the dark times. Embrace them, show them off to prospects, the press, and analysts. You are still in a very strong position, you just need to let the world know. A little PR will go far.

    I worked at Celestix Networks full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Provide services for a solution that very few organizations still use because they have been EOS/EOL by the manufacturer.

    Cons

    Immoral and illegal practices. Executive team has no relevant background but simply bought way into organization. Very frequent revolving door of sales teams from VP level all the way down in spite of exceeding all (highly inflated) targets. Company arbitrarily chooses what deals to pay or not pay employees on saying previous team initiated opportunity and therefore never has to pay salespeople on any of the opportunities they build in the pipeline or close. Company has no internal engineering resources… completely outsourced. Company does not pay any of its bills on time, waits until the last minute to do so or finds reasons not to. Employment contracts are written very ambiguously and in broken english… they choose which pieces of the contract to honor or not.

    Advice to Management

    Go take some lessons from a real world CEO or executive team on how to operate a business. Don't make promises to employees, whether verbal or written, that you will not keep. Pay your employees and vendors correctly and maybe your organization will have a chance at survival.
