    Pros

    Casual work environment.
    Pizza lunches once every two weeks.
    Nice offices in central Gatineau.
    Most people are casually friendly.

    Cons

    Widespread misery as BlackBerry went down.
    Two waves of mass layoffs at the end of 2013. Hugely demoralizing, and they haven't stopped since.
    People do the minimum to talk to each other, the rest of the time they're silo'd.
    Little sense of mission. In that sense it's not unusual for a consultancy.

    Advice to Management

    Everyone's leaving all the time, both junior and senior, voluntarily or otherwise. It feels like people get chewed up.

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

    Pros

    Macadamian has been the best company I've ever worked for. The company also places a lot of emphasis on professional development as well as work/life balance. The is always activities and events happening. Great company culture.

    Cons

    Salary could be more competitive with others in the area.

    Advice to Management

    You've made so many other companies grow and successful. Instead of building apps for other companies, perhaps put the talent into building an app yourself and grow?
