Place where you can learn a lot

Software Engineer (Former Employee)
Toronto, ON

I worked at Alt Software full-time for more than 3 years

Pros- Good opportunity to gain hands-on-experience on very important and deadline driven projects
- Great staff
- Downtown location

Cons- Poor job stability
- Poor management
- Very long hours

Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of the current management and hire those who can give realistic estimate, so that they don't just "win" projects bids, but the can actually finish the job in the estimated cost/fee.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

I worked for Alt during a difficult time for them.

Software Developer (Former Employee)
Toronto, ON

I worked at Alt Software full-time for more than 3 years

ProsInteresting work. Good experience for people looking to start a career in embedded software development.
Young staff.
Prime downtown office location.

ConsContract work makes for a large variation in work loads.
Scope creep on past projects resulted in poorly compensated overtime.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf you aren't going to develop a product, stick to contract employees. Get back into the Waterloo Coop program. Some of the best past employees came from there.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
