    Pros

    Architects are good and worth talking to them.. they will show you a way and how to better yourself.

    Cons

    It's not a place for non-talking people who are good at work.
    It's for people you can fight and hang anybody by neck but show the result.
    Since Aaron asks smart questions.. his sub-ordinates think they can also ask smart questions, they end-up asking questions which bring down the morale.
    Some managers who don't understand head and tail of technology they keep giving technical ideas and screw project, and blame on others.
    Worst HR. They say talk to your manager for everything.. Somebody should ask them question "Why there is a judge in the court of law.. why two lawyers can't find a common solution".

    I worked at Sandvine full-time

    Pros

    Good learning curve for the fresher.
    Free food

    Cons

    Zero work life balance.
    Working on weekend is considered normal.
    Company's road map is not so bright.
    Work is calculated on the basis of LOC and the actual effort required is never counted.
    There are a lot of managers and very few leaders.

    Advice to Management

    Project tracking cannot be done completely by only relying the excel sheet pre-historic data.

    I worked at Sandvine full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    It used to be a great place to work. Perhaps shareholders expected more hence the sale to Procera but the company turned a profit and had a healthy culture (outside of engineering, of course).

    Cons

    New management is command and control and has unreasonable expectations of results in an obsolete technology space. Key personnel continue to leave and no management team is present in HQ as they run the company from Texas.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the toxic engineering you inherited from your acquisition. That would be a start.
