    I have been working at Matrox Electronic Systems full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Best reasons to work at Matrox is that we always push the limit and challenge ourselves to do better. We design real technology from the ground up, not just cosmetic surface development. Great collaborative work atmosphere where people care and respect each other.

    Cons

    A very broad product portfolio puts a lot of demand on learning curve.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing hard to get the company to the next level.

    Pros

    People are nice, they will actually become friends rather than just work colleagues.

    Cons

    Management doesn't seem to care about it's employees. Instead of making it nice for experienced people, they'd rather keep the conditions and keep less effective employees. It's always as low expenses as possible.

    Advice to Management

    You should start caring about your efficient employees. If you actually show that you care, they'll reward you with productivity.

    It is a very relaxed environment with a nice work life balance. The campus is well equipped and the people working there are great.

    Cons

    Almost no effort is given on training. Not much space for growth. Too much tension between owners. In dire need for re-investment.

    Advice to Management

    Create a social club to take advantage of the great installations
    Remove any barrier between engineering with sales. invest in training, conferences, etc...
    Either split up the company between the two owners, sell it or make it public.
