  4. "Not the best company to work for"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Design Engineer 

    I have been working at Evertz Microsystems full-time

    Pros

    Not much to specify here. Some Executives are good. Most aren't, or equate you to the compensation they pay.

    Cons

    Family oriented. Nepotism. Communication issues. Lack of proper management. Very high turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Stop killing the golden goose. This industry is rising and you are riding the tide. But you have no future if you don't invest into your engineering vision.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Evertz Microsystems full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Great for a first time office job - Lots of bureaucratic policies that prevent first time office workers from making mistakes - Not expected to work outside standard business hours

    Cons

    - Middle management is not adequately trained to manage or motivate staff (ie middle management proves to be reactive instead of proactive, and are emotionally and not logically driven) - Company culture promotes avoidant behaviour among management and staff (open communication is strongly discouraged between different departments) - Lots of bureaucracy in order to promote micromanagement and impose an... unnecessary hierarchy - Any employees who are not considered a part of middle management are discouraged to communicate with upper management directly, which significantly impacts workflow and efficiency.

    Advice to Management

    - Require your middle managers to complete MBA programs. Hire additional management if necessary with experience outside of of Canada (ie Germany, Switzerland and France). - Stop wasting money on consultants. If you want advice, consult your board of directors or be humble enough to learn from your competitors. It is a lot cheaper. - Let go of the holy-than-thou mentality and and encourage open communication.... It will make the workplace significantly more positive, encourage team building and increase workflow. - Condoning practices like yelling obscenities at sales reps and acting emotional in the workplace will eventually land this company in hot water. Please remember that all it takes is one person to discreetly take a video of inappropriate office behaviour and an internet connection for it to blow up over various media sources. You have someone in management that is a public relations and legal disaster waiting to happen. Please address this and fix it. I give this advice in hopes that the company can do better and stop wasting money on easily preventable turnover.
