Software Quality Assurance (Former Employee), Kanata, ON – January 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.
Software Development (Current Employee), Ottawa, Canada – January 17, 2014
Cons: job security
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.
QC - Testing Associate (Current Employee), North York, ON – August 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.
Finance-Sales Administration (Former Employee), Kanata, ON – October 1, 2012
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. 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.
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. 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.
