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

    Pros

    Great opportunity for new college grads to learn and work with latest technologies. People are very helpful when approached.

    Cons

    Constant re-orgs and lack of co-ordination between various departments hurts the entire product line.

    Advice to Management

    Should take more care while transition to Agile methodology is still in progress as many employees feel like being shoved upon them and lead to dissatisfaction. Upper management should have more visibility.

    I worked at iDirect Technologies (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The company make a great product and is accelerating quickly. iDirect has a bright future with new solutions to connectivity issues throughout the world.

    Cons

    The company is moving very quickly and growing, so there are alot of reorganization but they seem for the best. Retaining talent is tough when moving so quickly.

    Advice to Management

    If the company would invest more in training, I think that could be beneficial. They should continue to invest in internship programs and young talent.

    I worked at iDirect Technologies full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    iDirect has always been a great company to work for since they hired me as the first PCB designer in-house. I enjoyed working there for almost 8 years before I left and some people have been helpful and very challenge to work with but overall the company is great to work for.

    Cons

    Too many reorgnzation might tickled people off but I learned later that it took times to get those to work. So be patience with those changes..

    Advice to Management

    Keep all employees informed of the work loads etc would be best and help them prepare for future plans.
