Finance-Sales Administration (Former Employee) –  Kanata, ONOctober 1, 2012
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.
I learned that my extensive background in Sales Administration helped the company improve and benefit from my input on how to improve in the automation of processes for a faster turn around time in sales orders from the time the PO was received to the customer receiving product.
Pros
dragonwaves social committee held frequent activities for all employees to participate in.

Software Development (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, CanadaJanuary 17, 2014
Great people to work with, and daily works are well managed. I have worked in this company for years and enjoy the time here.
There is nothing wrong to let me leave Alcatel, just the company has the decision to reduce the Ottawa site head count which may impact on our Wireless division.
This is worldwise company, Ottawa site is relatively a small side especially in Wireless Group.
Cons

Good place to work
Software developer (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ONOctober 24, 2014
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.
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

QC - Testing Associate (Current Employee) –  North York, ONAugust 21, 2013
Assembled inverters (domestic,commercial and industrial for company AEI) tested and attended to all defects. Everday learned new technics and identified faults. We had to mange the availability of parts and also had to cordinate with co-workers. The hardest part of the job was to detect the fault and to identify the faulty part. The most enjoyable part was when the fault was removed and the apparaus was working as desired.

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.
