Pros

It is really not bad for new immigrant. Because it is very hard to get first professional experience in Canada.

Cons

But the payment is quite low comparing to other company. And because lots of OT there, you have no time to accompany your faimily.

    Pros

    Lots and lots of work, there is no way not to learn. My manager is easy going, always cheerful, easy to communicate to. They provide jobs to immigrants unlike most canadian companies. The founder is immigrant and is very intelligent person.

    Cons

    Since mostly immigrants works here, my project leader who is white always feels the need to assert himself. He often raises his voice which is very unpleasant. I feel he takes credit for the work that I performed because of my limited English skills. I don't know how to solve this problem otherwise all ok

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work in launching new products. Increase the compensation to match with the industry standard. Talk one to one with the team members and do not get fooled when immigrants can not speak up.
