    I worked at Videotron full-time

    Pros

    Good coworkers make you feel like you're part of a team. Good pay and benefits with stable hours and opportunities.

    Cons

    Can be extremely stressful at times. Expect to disagree with upper management. Management is focused on being promoted, not worried about workers.

    Advice to Management

    Make an effort to communicate with employees and improve employee guidance. Ask employees opinions to improve quality of work.

    I worked at Videotron full-time

    Pros

    Friendly people, very high technical level, bleeding edge concepts in network reliability.
    A great place to learn about high-end network technology!

    Cons

    As most telecoms/ISPs, very process heavy.
    When working there in a technical role, it is difficult to avoid being placed in a specialization box that is too tight.

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

    Pros

    fun and relaxed environment, everyone leaves work at 5. Plus managers are very flexible with employee schedules. If you are looking for a relaxed job this might be for you.

    Cons

    Career progression virtually non-existent. Promotions come around every 4-5 years for engineers. Maybe less if you get lucky. The odds of climbing are real low plus a lot of the employees have been there for 5+ years and are still in the same position or barely promoted. Pay is not so attractive. Offices are below par for a company worth 1b+ . I felt like engineers were poorly treated.

    Advice to Management

    Treat engineers better.

    Good conditions, great people to work with, depending on the teams, can offer great projects and visibility since it's a fairly small organization.
