Pros

articulated culture framework called Sandvine Way
top performers are impowered
Free pop, beer and food during working lunch meetings

Cons

business success is not what it has needed to be for the past few years despite efforts to change underlining drivers....

Advice to Management

success is what drives success....figure it out as it is the only way to eliminate second guessers. be careful hiring too many Senior RIM managers.

    I worked at Sandvine full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    very smart and dedicated people, competitive products
    nice employee benefits in Canadian office
    proper pay

    Cons

    lrecently the management change turned down the cuture significantly
    no care about the employees in the field
    unlimited authority given to very weak field management (inc recently started VPs)
    do not talk to the employees, even when they leave
    Customer first - is a major declaration in SV way
    No focus, any business is good, despite the efforts involved.

    Advice to Management

    Trust people and travel to the regions. Do not underinvest. There are other cultures and business practices outside of Canada, it is important to learn them. If you think that the person is not talented enough to work for SV, be open, no need to hide the actions. Everything is open.
