Disapproves of CEO

Pros

You get a pay check.
Free coffee
If you are lucky, it will be a short commute
any port in a storm (it's better than not job at all)

Cons

Company policy is at least 4 years between pay increases of near nothing.
Some managers will treat you with respect others lie to your face to manipulate you to work more.
Company stated policy is to squeeze "resources" you like a lemons

Advice to Management

At least try to show some appreciation for the people making the company run. AND actually know what your managers are doing, some manage people like personal servants but not in front of you.

    I worked at Descartes Systems full-time

    Pros

    Good Benefits, other than that, not much else.

    Cons

    Poor Management, No room for progression in company. Poor compensation. No incentive. Terrible atmosphere. Hostile work environment. Every day someone gets in an argument with someone else and work can't get done. Lazy management. One woman specifically. When brought to others attention she pulls out a sob story about her life and how its infinitely worse than everyone else. Shes kisses up to management to keep her job, and takes whatever aggression she has out on her team members and members of other teams. Work hours are not what are specified through interview, you will work 9-11 hour days, sometimes Saturdays. Huge back log of work, that never seems to be finished. If you somehow find the will to stay and try to move up for the company, your progress will most likely be impeded by people that want to keep you where you are. Beginning pay is incredibly low for a company in their industry. Work with incompetent clients. All in all, if you have any better options, take those instead.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of people that cause others to be unhappy, add incentive, up salaries.
