Employee Review

    5.0
    Current Employee, more than 5 years

    Great Company, Great Benefits but mediocre compensation (Canada)

    Jul 26, 2021 - Software Engineer in Ottawa, ON
    Recommend
    CEO Approval

    Pros

    Not sure about other departments but the department I work for has a very good management. Employees are treated very well. Very flexible to work for; can work from home whenever you want. Very family oriented. Mind blowing Extended Health Coverage.

    Cons

    Base salary is not lower than average tech companies in Ottawa but for its size and amount of work/effort engineers put, it could be more. However, other compensation types can balance this deficit (such as RSUs, Bonuses based on your performance, etc.)

    Excellent team, management has good priorities

    Jan 24, 2022 - Product Marketing Manager in San Jose, CA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The management has done an excellent job showing they care about the wellbeing of employees through the pandemic. Management in product marketing has been very good for years about keeping a well-functioning, highly professional team together. People really care about doing their job well and are in it for the team, not just for themselves.

    Cons

    Product strategy can be frustratingly conflicted sometimes.
