    - Competitive compensation and benefits coverage
    - New office space and minor renovations help improve collaboration
    - Good focus on employee one-on-one's with managers on a regular basis
    - Centralized office location in Burnaby, BC

    - On-site amenities and activities are a plus (gym, showers, subsidized yoga, bootcamp, nearby soccer/hockey)
    - Flat organization structure enables ease of access to talk to executive level staff

    Cons

    - Lack of strategic direction and vision from top level and board of directors
    - Great technology, but not as prominent in the market as it should/can be
    - Organizational structure limits opportunities to move up into team lead roles

    - Bring in more new grads and develop talent within
    - Practice agility in hiring (streamline hiring processes and reduce number of rounds)

    Technology is really cool and interesting. People are an experienced group one can learn a lot from. There is a lot of Engineering innovation and work.

    Advice to Management

    Need to figure out what the business value of the services they provide are and sell sell sell. Take ownership of the end customer and make deployment of the technology simple.

    I worked at Teradici full-time

    Pros

    Steady Salary increase over the year
    Good effort improving company culture
    Managers are approchable

    Cons

    Product lack proper direction
    Segregated Team interaction
    Not enough innovation to keep company going

    Advice to Management

    It is disheartening to hear good things about the company one month then next month you find out that we are deep in the reds. Hard to understand why the company made so many unjustified bets.

    I worked at Teradici full-time

    Pros

    Good people, interesting work. They go to great lengths to make it an enjoyable place to work. Everyone is respectful and collaborative.

    Cons

    Company is losing its footing. Just laid off half of the company. Shifting focus away from revenue generating activities to a plan that has never made money in the several years they have been trying. Morale is now very low across much of the business.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on what the company is good at and what generates revenue. The current focus is a really big gamble and has a very low chance of working.
