    Pros

    The company takes a long term view on it position, solutions and strategy. Making sure to stay relevant and on the leading edge of technology.

    Cons

    the outside position of the company is not entirely reflected inside. the company has struggled to use new technologies to make working here efficient. There have been improvements but there is still a lot to be done. Not such a bad thing if you like a dynamic work environment

  2. A large ambitious group with talented teams and cumbersome internal processes.

    Pros

    Great location down town, friendly environment. Most managers and supervisors are open and approachable.

    Cons

    Company is taking advantage of interns, paying minimum salary.
    All administrative, non management positions are very underpaid.
    Management is hiding behind all those complex HR policies, 50-page presentations with graphs and calculations that make no sense and only purpose of which is not to give you salary increase. They do appreciate your hard work and accomplishments, you might even get an award of some sort, but don't expect a decent salary increase.

    Pros

    - Exposure to PLM products such as CATIA, ENOVIA, etc. heavily used in many fields of engineering
    - Friendly and supportive teammates
    - Possibility to travel and consult at different customers worldwide, if interested
    - Great office location near metro station (in Old Montreal)

    Cons

    - Low pay compared to industry standards
    - Very high turnover in the Engineering department. If you have a background in Mechanical Engineering, you might not stay very long in the company, unless you are willing to change departments and/or willing to work more in the IT/computer engineering field (since it's a software company).

    Advice to Management

    Change the strategy of the Engineering department; it's bleeding out.

  7. 3DS is an enriching place to work for new graduate engineers.
