    I worked at Sandvine full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    A lot of nice, smart people Free beer, snacks, company events Was good before but since acquisition has been horrible environment and getting worse.

    Cons

    No focus on employees, is all about money and planning to exit investment from Private Equity. Limited and uninspired communications Disrespectful and unprofessional behaviour is allowed to happen. Former positive Sandvine culture is dead and beyond reviving with current Leadership Good people continue to leave in big numbers

    I worked at Sandvine full-time

    Pros

    They have a plan make the company more successful financially.

    Cons

    Really did not take care of the people and its culture. They think because they are making lots of money everyone should be happy, but if you are working for such heartless people it doent feel like a great place to come everyday. Hearing about a lot of firing which has never happened before. Not the innovative place it was.

    I worked at Sandvine full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Lots of learning opportunities. Good Pay. Open minded and helpful managers, colleagues Free food and transportation.

    Cons

    You would have lots of learning opportunities to learn. If you're the kind of person who would like to have minimum/no work pressure. This wouldn't be the company for you. Managers are kind enough to understand when you aren't able to meet the deadlines. But you would definitely have a push/pressure to compete.
