    Good place to work if you are looking for a steady job, where you don't have to take work home with you.

    ProsReasonable pay, smaller office allows for more visibility with senior level managment

    Good place to develop your career

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Mississauga, ON

    ProsMarket share leader, Excellent product quality, ok innovation, excellent leadership training, great total comp package including excellent benefits, management allows for some work/life balance, very open communication.

    ConsWay too slow to market. Conservative product development process delays many product launches and often allows competition to get the upper hand on introducing new technologies.

    Drive for quarterly results leads to some decisions that have negative long-term consequences.

    Although there is a well developed talent tracking program promotions are often politically motivated. No tolerance for missing a quarter regardless of extenuating circumstances.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more open to feedback from the Employee Engagement survey. Don't dismiss negative outcomes as "childish employees". Deal with the result in a meaningful way.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
