Good oppertunity to grow technically because that is the only growth you get here
Senior Engineer (Current Employee), Ottawa, ONOctober 5, 2015
Pros: Freindly work envioronment.
Cons: low pay & no salary growth. Salaries not in sync with market average.
Only growth possible is technical. If you get really good at your work you will be rewarded with more work . Keep on changing roles internally. It used to be difficult to change roles but not any more.

Good place to work
Software developer (Former Employee), Ottawa, ONOctober 24, 2014
Pros: interesting projects, open to new ideas, transparency of company business state.
Cons: ramp up time and training resources not sufficient for all new employees
Great product ideas and design.

Good people, collaborative work environment. Training ad-hoc, but good efforts by department and experienced employees.

The tools were not always the best such as the in house "easy test" which was garbage.

Priorities were constantly in flux and a lot of time was wasted switching back and forth between them.

Agile team trust violated by one team member which was not addressed.

High turnover, due to financial issues of company.

Good commitment of employees to the company but not reciprocal.

Sales Administration Coordinator level 4 (Former Employee), Kanata, ONMay 22, 2014
Pros: great team experience and free team building events.
Cons: quarter ends had long hours.
My typical day at work was to review stats, to ensure that we would meet our one time deliveries. Help team members with the portfolio's and projects that the were working on to ensure that the customer would receive their material on time. Assist with high profile conference calls to help set up projects and resolve any issues that we might have. Example shortages, equipment failure etc. The hardest part of the job is for me was putting the job down and going home, especially if we had issues with a project. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with all the people at Alcatel and help accomplishing the task at hand.

Dull Coop
Software Quality Assurance (Former Employee), Kanata, ONJanuary 21, 2014
First coop was inexperienced. Not really given any challenging work. Felt more like a weight to the team than an asset. Would have really appreciated some neat projects to work on or some encouragement.
