    Great place to work at as long as you have your head on your shoulders

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Toronto, ON

    ProsGenerally friendly colleagues; easy going yet hard working environment; very good products.

    ConsNo significant opportunities for advancement or lateral moves, unless at the larger US sites; processes rather ad hoc; some office politics to deal with.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou can't keep doing things the same way yet expect different results: invest in improving processes and in infrastructure.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Site had small company atmosphere at beginning, but has changed over the years.

    Senior Software Systems Engineer (Current Employee) Toronto, ON

    ProsDifferent challenges to work on. Get to know hardware while implementing software analysis tools.

    ConsWorking with others at remote sites can be challenging at some times, but interesting and a good challenge at others.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake technical ladder performance-based, rather than peer-election based. It's implemented too much like a "you're in-the-club" system.

    Good Place to cut your teeth...

    Sales Manager (Former Employee)

    ProsExcellent training program for student hires, promotional opportunities in early years, competitive pay, opportunities for meaty jobs very quickly

    ConsNo real value placed on experience, promotions based on potential as opposed to actual results

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt is great to have young energetic people infused into the orgnaisation, but it should be tempered with actual accomplishments. This will help with management credibility with any senior individual contributors.

    Stable company

    Associate (Current Employee) Stafford, TX (US)

    ProsJob security is high. Benefits for those that have been here for some time are great. Profit sharing is attractive.
    Great company to work for if you are fine with limited growth opportunities.

    ConsPay is lower than industry standards. If you are a newer employee you are now subject to the lower benefit trends that other companies are using. Talent is wasted or not fully utilized. The environment is the same as it was in the 70's. Creative energies are not promoted.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPromote those with experience and not just by academic credentials. Very limited resources used to grow employees.
