Switching Engineer/IT Technician (Former Employee), Lagos – August 29, 2013
Pros: great co-workers
Cons: poor compensation
Depending on the project at hand, a typical day could be fun and exciting. Co-workers are fun to be around. Typically when there is an ongoing project it is work round the clock but at times everyone is idle. Management is not doing enough to promote the company in Nigeria where I worked. The hardest part of the job is when you have to go away from – more... your family for over a month working in a remote location. Management do not seem to know what is called work - life balance. Relationship between management and staff is strictly business. – less

Assembled inverters (domestic,commercial and industrial for company AEI) tested and attended to all defects. Everday learned new technics and identified faults.

Transmission Engineer - UNOC Manesar (Current Employee), Manesar, Gurgaon, India – December 9, 2012
Pros: only knowledge gain option
Cons: isolaton from the city, no restraunts/ break-out area near the premises
The overall experience is good as we have a multi vendors in our network. Each day I learn something new from the network. All the colleagues are supportive.

Pros: dragonwaves social committee held frequent activities for all employees to participate in.
A typical day at work is liasing with the sales executives,and logistics teams ensuring all purchase orders received met the contractual obligations between the company and the customer. The most enjoyable part of the job was customer satisfaction and recongition of a job well done.

Order Administrative Coordinator (Current Employee), Kanata, ON – May 30, 2012
Pros: hour lunches
Cons: repetitive work
A typical day at work would consist of get sales orders from the management team to process into a system called SAP. However the sales orders are the same type of orders because our account is Sprint (telecommunications company) and they want a lot of the same work done in several areas in the United States. So because of that our work is very repetitive. – more... I've learned how to use SAP and how to work in the corporate culture. My co-workers are awesome, we get along very well and I would say the most enjoyable part of the job is when our lunch comes, because the co-workers and myself get to laugh and talk about things not related to work. There isn't a lot of movement within this department, therefore it's a very entry level kind of job. – less
Test Engineer (Current Employee), Longview, TX – December 1, 2013
The hardest part of my job was getting the direction or knowing which direction I was supposed to go. Upper management was always changing. They have reduced my levels of accountability from 9 to 5 which has simplified many things. However, they are trying to save money and the first to go is always lower seniority people.
