    I worked at Norsat International full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great start for people who is looking for experiences Great people there - that's what I valued and loved the most about working there The benefits isn't bad I learned a lot of things there

    Cons

    The pay was really really bad but it depends which position you have Long working hours with tight tight deadlines

    Advice to Management

    People's pay influences their motivation cause at the end of the day they go home and live their lives and pay their bills. They are also the ones making the products you're selling. If you want people to care, the company should show that you care about employee's well being as well.

    I have been working at Norsat International full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Some talented staff, and some closely knit teams

    Cons

    An executive team more adept at lying than leading. Expect horrendous workloads, no recognition, and plenty of blame. You’ll trip over all the corrupt and unethical business practices. Corporate strategy is flakey and poorly copied off the flavor of the month guru.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t pretend you’re great. You’re not. Especially when you try to take advantage of people. Don’t take your team for granted. You’re not fooling anyone. Step down, both of you. You have no business managing anything, never mind aspiring to lead anyone.
