    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Above average vacation time (hey it's a Canadian company!)
    They try to treat employees with respect (at least in North America)

    Cons

    It's a mix of many companies they acquired, plagued by poor management. If you're an innovative person looking for an exciting work, this place is not for you.

    Advice to Management

    Think out of the box, get some innovative leaders, commodity business won't survive! You've lost so many chances already, could have been #1 on mobile multimedia apps.
