Boring products, low salaries, horrible office space layout
SW engineer (Former Employee) – North York, ON – 17 January 2018
Most reviews and salaries on here are fake, entered by the HR of the company.
Salaries in Bluecat are on the low end of the IT industry.
Their developers make around 65-75K while in any other equivalent job they could have made 85-95K for junior and intermediate engineers.
The job culture is as of a geriatrics hospital and there is zero vibe in the office (ok, there is a vibe of an elderly home care. I guess)
The only good thing is that the work-life balance. They never work weekends or extra hours which is great.
The office looks like a sweatshop in the far east and there are very few women in the engineering group (and most of them are not in tecky roles). To summarize, I would recommend Bluecat only if you can't find any other job or you don't look for anything challenging in this stage of your life.
Good work-life balance
