      Growing company with exciting technology and talented people

      Aug 30, 2013 -

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Exciting future, technology sells itself, growing so there are so many opportunities for people to drive initiatives and make a difference/impact in how things are done. The company values technically skilled individuals who are passionate in what they do, work/life balance is not just talked about – it exists, encourages an environment of creativity, openness and respectful communication.

      Cons

      Part and parcel of being a company in the growth phase, working through ways to manage communications more efficiently across the organization.

      Great People, Lacking Strategic Vision

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Great work-life balance and flexible work schedules (technology enables working remotely with ease) - 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 - Fun culture with lots of socials and food - 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 - Lack of learning and development opportunities for non-management level staff - Bottlenecks in recruitment due to inability of hiring manager to make decisions on candidates (stems from top-level gate-keeping)

      Great company to work for

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great technology and excellent work environment. Most of employees are smart, talented and friendly and work well with each other as a team. Managers have reasonable and clear expectations from the employees and are open to suggestions. Excellent work-life balance and flexible hours.

      Cons

      At times it seems that managers of different teams don't communicate effectively with each other or are not fully aware of what their team is doing. This can result in confusion and makes cross team collaboration more difficult.

      Incompetent management

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      -Flexible work hours, good work-life balance. -Most developers and QE are great to work with.

      Cons

      -Managers are lazy, incompetent, inexperienced, and arrogant (some have all of these characteristics, others are blessed with just some). -Why am I even writing this review? Not because I expect any change to come from it. Just to vent. The biggest problem with management is they don't listen to developers. -They insist you work on a virtual desktop for development. They seem to randomly decide that certain developers can buy a real machine. Others buy their own. -No career advancement opportunities for developers. Team hierarchies are flat and are managed by a non-technical role (product owner). There are no technical roles for developers where they can stay on a team yet have some responsibility.

      Former Employee

      Pros

      Great technology, decent work life balance, people care about their work, autonomy for sales folk

      Cons

      Not much in terms of career advancement, poor leadership at CEO level. Invested too much time in some products that are destined to fail or were not even launched at all. Let go of some of their most experience and tenured employees during layoffs as well as didn't retain some of their best staff in the past years.

      Good team but lost management.

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Freedom to choose different architectures, try new things. Great products and engineering team. Friendly coworkers with good work-life balance.

      Cons

      Management just don't know how to make more money. You are doomed for speaking out, politics is an issue too as your compensation and promotions is tied to socializing with the right people in the company. Sometimes schedule get unrealistic because they don't take any feedback from the designers.

      Pros

      One of the best hiring and interview processes I have experienced so far in 20+ years of my career! Once they find good talent and right person for the position they are both proactive and reactive! The entire process from my first telephone interview to getting an offer was managed very well and efficiently. The hiring manager and HR were super efficient, responsive and very cooperative. Am totally impressed! The work culture and environment is very friendly and everyone is super helpful. I love the work-Life balance! The entire Exec team is impressive and pretty strategic and focused!

      Cons

      None that I can think of as yet!!
