    Pros

    Great people, good pay, interesting work, and a company that has a recognizable brand and a reasonable share of the market

    Cons

    In Canada the footprint continues to shrink as more and more of the company's workforce is "globalized" "Globalized" also means meetings at all times of the day and night, due to all the various time-zones.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Balancing what the customer wants, the shareholder wants, and the employees want will always be tough sledding. Of the two I'd recommend the customer and the employee. :-)

    Pros

    Fantastic culture, and action to back up the stated core beliefs. Great people. An amazing group of products and people who really care about the customer. Flexible working environment.

    Cons

    Upper management was somewhat disconnected from the customer, let the size of the organization impede the speed at which a software company needs to move.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Watch for your stars, every once in a while, I would see amazing staff be marginalized due to a lower managers weaknesses, stifling them and the business missing out. You need to move faster, speeding up your decision making process and then backing your decisions with resources. Keep focusing on the culture. Through the recession that backed off a bit and never sprung back.

    Pros

    Great benefits, company gives back to community and has many events for the employees to socialize.

    Cons

    Big company with lot's of offices in different locations, working with distributed teams and maintaining a working knowledge of who is responsible for what can be challenging.
    Workload can get very heavy.

    Pros

    Benefits, flexible work environment, occasional travel, sometimes interesting/complex work.

    Cons

    Personal growth is limited due to small teams, unless you are willing to relocate. Sometimes tedious work due to government and 3rd party regulations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice to have more opportunities to stretch and grow. For example, innovation sessions could be led by someone other that the manager of a team.

    Pros

    Good salary, excellent benefits (bonus, life and medical insurance), great building, balance work-life, time flexibility, generally speaking, if the objective is money, this is the perfect company

    Cons

    No room to advance in your career. No changes and job becomes a simply routine

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management should pay more attention to lower levels, not just results, and spend some time to evaluate the work environment

    Pros

    Great profit sharing when targets are met.

    Cons

    Lack of upwards mobility as the company is no longer a fast growth company. They spend too much money on corporate culture and have been cutting expenses dramatically.
