I have been working at HighVail Systems full-time
The people here really care about one another. It is great to work at a place where I look forward to seeing my colleagues each day. Sunday nights aren't filled with dread and Monday mornings aren't a drag. I like working somewhere that I am happy to be.
Working at HighVail isn't for everyone. People who are used to working in large bureaucratic organizations might find it to be an adjustment to work in an environment like HighVail.
Advice to Management
Keep doing what you are doing!
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at HighVail Systems (Toronto, ON) in March-2011.
Met with the CEO, CTO, and Director of Operations during concurrent interviews, then I was invited to meet the rest of the team on the sales, operations, and technical side to get a feel for what it would be like to work their. After that I was presented with an offer letter very quickly with a very competitive salary and benefits. I started a short while later where I was provided with all of my office equipment and a cell phone that I can use as my personal phone so that was an added benefit.
