      Best place I have worked

      Sep 16, 2020 - Team Lead in Vancouver, BC
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great people to work with. Tries, and succeeds most of the time, to be transparent about its goals and objectives. A lot of talented people work here. Open and accessible management. Great products in the video security space and interesting technologies, especially in AI and video analytics. Huge range of technologies to work with.

      Cons

      Many teams that work in silos. Professes to be Agile but sometimes struggles to succeed. Sometimes overreaches its capacity to deliver.

      Overall a very positive experience.

      Pros

      Good work life balance. Many great people in there. Solid benefits and decent pay. Can be a fun place to work but that can depend on the team you join. Interesting technology but your working on a old monolithic solution. New CEO has a clear vision and places an emphasis on solid engineering practices. Overall a very positive experience.

      Cons

      Management can be little detached. Very little direction or clarity about progressing in the company.

      Pros

      Fast paced environment with constant change due to growth. Lots of opportunity for learning new skills and being involved in making change happen. Always a platform to present your ideas and people do listen. Great people to work with from the top down.

      Cons

      Departments still work in silos and don't want to understand the challenges of others. Original employees from the early days still stuck in the past and have difficulty moving forward.

      The rumours are true

      CEO Approval

      Pros

      Great people. The benefit to being one of the fastest growing companies in technology is that everyone wants to work there. The resume's we received were very good and the people are fantastic.

      Cons

      Little faith that employees will act in the best interest of the company results in micro-managing and placing blame anytime an unplanned challenge arises. This creates an environment where nobody is able to (or wants to) make decisions without involving senior management because a wrong decision will result in dismissal. The ironic thing is that because the employees are good, the company could actually be much more efficient and agile if it trusted the staff to do the right thing.
