    I worked at Evertz Microsystems full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Interesting products and a great number of them to learn.

    Cons

    Hmmm where to begin? First of all, consider this -5 stars.. not 1. Extremely low pay (next to nothing) If you want to grow in this so called company, you must be ready to get under the table to suck... you know. Good titles/Promotions, heavy bonuses and pay increases are reserved only for suck ups. Only very few managers/directors will actually treat you according your work. The donkeys (management) have absolutely no real technical or any practical knowledge or logic (except whatever they presented on paper to get the job, which everyone knows is a bunch of bull). Amongst them is one known as ‘VP’ who’s an absolute suck-up and a snitch hired to do the dirty work if one called ‘FS’. FS claims Not to micromanage, however hires a snitch to do his dirty work.. Aside from this.. get this as your first job to gain experience and get out of there before they get you out !

    Pros

    Fly in high density airspace. one owner is great to work with

    Cons

    Managed by an Executive Assistant that has no idea of FLT regulations and no respect for CAR's Not a lot of flying hours for those that want to build time recurrent bond every year! do not keep up with aviation standards MIN 15 hr duty days need to fight for hotel rooms to split a duty day All expenses are out of pocket and you wait months for reimbursement Expense claims are often rejected by the Executive Assistant

    Advice to Management

    Listen to former employees and their exit interview comments give Captains a credit card to cover the big expenses, if you can trust them with your million dollar plane...you should be able to trust them with a credit card.

    I worked at Evertz Microsystems full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Laid back office environment, no professionalism You could get away with wearing sweat pants to work Managers wouldn't notice if you didn't show up to work for 5 months and would still pay you, which is a bonus

    Cons

    1. Management has zero regard for anyone's feelings, wants or needs. If you are good at your job, good luck ever moving onto a new role or department 2. No work/life balance 3. Managers moto "if you're not over worked and under paid, you shouldn't work at Evertz" 4. Owners drive around in $100k sports car, while paying people with 5 year engineering degree 35k a year to start (with the promise of up to 50% travel, but you will never leave the office if the manager doesn't like you) 5. Blatant favoritism 6. HR is not there to protect you, they are there to protect the employer 7. Managers will emotionally and mentally abuse you (i.e call you names, belittle you, ZERO positive reinforcement)

    Advice to Management

    Completely wipe out those running the service department now and hire someone who has the mental capacity greater than a 10 year old to run the place. My 5 year old niece has better people, time management and managerial skills than half the people this company hires.
