    Pros

    I've been an employee with this company for a decade! I'm happy to say while the company has grown so have I. While it's important to think there are better opportunities, many forget how great of an opportunity you have right in front of you. I live a happy enjoyable life thanks to this company. It must be said that while the people have complained about the company in other reviews, the company is the just a shell it's the employee's that make up the company. Pros -Treated like a human with respect and dignity -Flexible and accommodating as life changes -Hard challenging work -Your paycheck shows up on time every time -Great co-workers

    Cons

    Cons -Pay can lag slightly behind industry -Accountability could be better enforced -Retirement plan contrabuition would be nice

    Driven by personality not skill

    Pros

    Was at one time a leader and still could be if they can get over the little Canadian club they have

    Cons

    Too much emphasis on the Toronto employees (non-sales) "liking" someone. Regardless of what you have or could bring to the table its all about whether a few people with very shallow backgrounds outside of Winmagic like you. Too many complacent types who are staying put as they aren't driven to do much and are paid ok for Canada. Management will fire people on heresy.... don't waste your time or your skills on these guys. If your a US employee there is no 401K and there won't be, medical is ok but not the best and everything centers on the Canadian perspective of the world.

    Good work-life balance | Limited growth potential

    Pros

    The company does provide a good work environment and a solid work-life balance. Not a "startup culture" by any means, but a decent workplace with genuinely good people.

    Cons

    Leadership focuses too much on "vision" and not enough on execution. If you want to work with an innovative or high-growth company, this is not the place. If you're looking for a slower pace and a learning environment, it's a better fit.

    Pros

    Management definitely cares about employee well being and definitely cares about having a good product. Employees are treated well here. Some times can be stressful but it is the nature of the business. All the departments seem to care about what they do, and people are professional but also friendly and easy to talk to. The product is really improving with each release, a lot of talented people here.

    Cons

    There is not much in terms of events or team building lately. My experience has been mostly positive.
