Great place to work
Beta Software Tester (Co-op) (Former Employee) –  Waterloo, ON8 June 2017
Work culture is great but it is difficult to find a job for full time as there is no vacancy. Overall, it is a great place to work as a co-op. The co-workers are so great and willing to help anytime you need them.

Good in some aspects
Quality Analyst (Former Employee) –  Waterloo, ON22 May 2017
Leadership in the hay days was very poor as a result there was no strategic innovation and the company underwent spiral fall. However, there were attempts to recover but in vain. The middle management and senior VPs were working in extreme silos and no engagement with staff. The HR was never for employees so work culture really was in a bad shape.
Pros
Perks
Cons
Work culture, leadership disengagement
