    I have been working at IMRIS full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Jay has done a great job of turning around the company from where it was before he came. There have been departures at the executive level which may look bad to investors, but the change has been positive. New management are driving towards a more strategic, innovative culture that will produce results. It's a different strategy, that should attract a different class of investor.

    Cons

    We need more people in the company who have a background in surgical medical device product development.

    We need to work more closely with surgeons during product development.

    We need to improve our reputation with investors/industry.

    Advice to Management

    Please review each person in the organization, identify the true leaders, and give them the formal leadership opportunities to help you drive this company towards profitability and commercial success. Reorg now, past performance is the best indicator of future results. There are many who are passionate and working hard to make IMRIS a $8/share stock again, but there are also some who are weighing down the organization with their negativity, lack of clinical knowledge, lack of industry knowledge, lack of teamwork, and lack of optimism. Please do not let the latter drive away the former.

    I have been working at IMRIS full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working on bleeding edge systems that push the boundaries of medical imaging. Limitless job satisfaction when you see first hand the effect these systems give to patient care and tumor recession. Great group of people to work with.

    Cons

    The travel makes many nights sleeping in a hotel room. But on the same coin you keep your points to take nice vacations for next to nothing.

    I worked at IMRIS full-time

    Pros

    Products are innovative and unique...

    Cons

    Poor leadership in Canada & US have lead to a loosing business model; never profitable in history of company; poor cash management, unable to invest in necessary business tools, and inept at continuos improvement in key processes.

    Advice to Management

    Employee/financial future is bleak unless either acquired; discontinue setting unrealistic expectations for investors and blaming employees for failure to meet. Have courage to be truthful to the market and employees.

    I have been working at IMRIS full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I have only been at the company for a few years, but it has lived up to all my expectations. The CEO shares what is happening within the company and is not afraid to tell the truth. Due to this open policy, you understand what is happening within the company, and why certain decisions are made.

    Most importantly, there is a genuine atmosphere of collaboration and nobody is trying to get ahead. Working here has been a great experience, and has really helped to confirm that there are good companies out there.

    Cons

    The only downside to the company is that the technology has not been accepted in the medical space as a necessity. Once that happens, the company will be able to grow and expand beyond the small company that it is today.

    Pros

    Good pay, good location, benefits are pretty decent. Great cafeteria and the product itself makes you feel good about what you do.

    Lots of disorganization. People don't seem to know what is really needed and the track seems to change each week.

    I have been working at IMRIS full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    New CEO driving the business to efficiency. Recent corporate move to Minneapolis has enabled the recruitment of talented people, especially in engineering. Strong marketing organization improved many strategic/operational aspects of the company. Interesting problems everyday, with complex products which will disrupt the market once they are launched. Lots of opportunity to improve the business since it has moved out of Winnipeg.

    Cons

    IT infrastructure needs improvement across the board. Many people in key roles lack the experience and/or attitude to make this company great. Human resources are not balanced with the workload.

    Advice to Management

    Take a close look at VPs and above who have been with the company for a while. They will perpetuate the culture of the old IMRIS. The company needs to move forward with a fresh start. Take measures to show appreciation to top talent and retain them for many years.
