    I have been working at Genetec full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Innovative ideas are welcomed, and opportunities abound for creative people as company is growing steadily and quite rapidly. Privately-held, owner managed company means focus is firmly on doing the right thing for the long term. As a result, the company's products are years ahead of their competitors. 1000 person company with the culture of a start-up.

    Cons

    The work can take over your life if you let it... there is ALWAYS something to do. Connecting new employees to the culture and mission gets tougher as the company grows. There are lots of social events and activities to help but many remote staff don't participate.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in the tools to scale the business as well as the product.

    I worked at Genetec full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The company as a whole is a great atmosphere. They have decent benefits and a salaries that compete in the industry. There is a good sense of team. Very friendly and outgoing employees.

    Cons

    Growing fast, maybe too fast. No real on boarding process other than some initial training depending on your position. Positions in the field especially outside of HQ are disconnected and can make working remotely a challenge.
