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

    Pros

    Every good work environment, good work-life balance. There are many social events and some little bonus like free food and fruits.

    Cons

    The technologies that they are using seem not very new. Other than that, everything is good enough.

    I worked at Mxi Technologies full-time

    Pros

    They have beer in house to wash away the pain.
    Try to have events that help boost morale every month.
    Given some freedom to research ideas.

    Cons

    poor management skills as they are just promoted developers.
    lack of direction for the company.
    understaffed resulting in developers being over worked without stopping.
    knowledge loss is an issue and results in wasted time and functions not working as intended. In addition, if key players leave the product would suffer.

    Pros

    Friendly coworker. Friendly Manager. The company has good work life balance. They are accommodate and undertand to family obligation

    Cons

    Mentorship can be improve. The pay is ok. They moved to other end of the city but do not compensate for extra expense and time to travel.

    Advice to Management

    You are running a great company. Keep up good work and maybe pay existing employee market value and not just new employee

    I worked at Mxi Technologies full-time

    Pros

    R&D Department was a friendly and cooperative environment.
    Great place to try out different roles, and you can take on as much responsibility as you desire

    Cons

    Change is slow-going (ideas take about 4 years to percolate into the organization)
    Feedback cycles with customers is also in the "years" range, rather than "days" or "months" desired for producing useful software / happy customers.

    I worked at Mxi Technologies full-time

    Pros

    This industry and company is rich in resources, offers a lot of travelling and good training resources to get started.

    Cons

    Abrasive upper management, if you're on a different shift than your supervisor, it may be months before you reconnect.
    shifts are based on seniority and you will have to take a bad shift for months at a time.
    employees in some departments LOVE to gossip (above average from my experience)

    Advice to Management

    listen to your employees, they are your biggest asset.

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

    Pros

    A great, true Agile development environment. No matter your role, you're integral to the success, or failure, of your squad.

    The salary offered was better than I expected.

    People & Culture (HR) programs are good.

    Cons

    Agile environment can be taxing (no down time after a release).

    The company's benefits plan is pretty standard. An increase to the RRSP matching amount would help to attract more talent.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up.

    Pros

    - Lots of little perks (bagels, cake, free beer, coffee soda)
    - Pay seems to be competitive
    - Not too demanding for new/junior employees, good pay without much responsibility

    Cons

    - Long established management group that focuses on protecting their empire, not much room for advancement. Not very open to new ideas
    - Little accountability, many people do not work very hard
    - Does not follow it's own stated values/goals, spends too much time touting it's success with weak evidence.
    - Panic management that only focus on problems when they become a crisis.
    - Isolated in south Kanata

    Advice to Management

    - Cut the dead weigh. Especially at the middle management layer which does not provide any value. Build a smaller stronger company around good performers, it'll actually get more done without the distraction.
    - Make values programs work
