    Pros

    Corel has some great products with very affordable prices that compete with the best of them. The every day employees are the best and hardest working you'll ever work with.

    Cons

    The company is owned by a private equity firm that goes through layoffs 2-3x/year and trims budgets to levels that hurt everyone and everything involved, the products, the employees and the customers. It hires way too many contract people, denying them job security, benefits and vacation. People with 10+ years tenure have been laid off w/o notice.

    Advice to Management

    If you want a successful company, I suggest you invest in both the employees and the products instead of seeing how much sweat you can squeeze out of your increasingly unhappy and discouraged employees.


  2. "Enjoyable time"
