Pros
Good learning opportunities, technical environment, fun team building activities, fast-paced, upper management was very supportive, global experience, challenging
Cons
Long hours, negative work environment, overworked, manager did not give out recognition, imbalance of duties, very repetitive, not supportive team, felt alienated

Great place for stable long term work
Market Analyst (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON18 May 2016
good place for long term work although they do need to upgrade facilities (office etc). People are nice and friendly. Pace of moving up is slow although you can get better titles if you like. Work complications can be tough but flex work environment makes it easier to cope with the challenges.

Good work environment with nice people to work with but very poor pay with no scope to advance or becoming full time in the long run.
Manufacturing Associate (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON29 December 2014
Well reputed company with good management but it is a temporary contractual work through an agency with very minimum salary with no chance to advance ever. In the maximum of 23 months contract, there is only one pay increase of $0.25 after six months of employment. No opportunity of growing or even getting hired by the company directly makes the job less appealing.
Pros
Friendly people and supers
Cons
no advancement opportunity

Labor worker (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON2 December 2015
I learned to work as a team and how sometimes you have to adjust to work in a team or else completing the task would be a failure. Most my co workers arefriendly. I really enjoy working with some of them. i think the hardest part of the job is moving the panels or cells because the cells are so delicate.
Cons
long hours

A Great Place to Learn
Program Coordinator / Producton Cell Leader (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON10 January 2013
Learned everything from the manufacturing process, information technology, lean, six sigma, warehousing, after-market services, supply chain, leadership, personnel safety and many others.

Management is very fair and by the book sometimes to much which negatively impacts some employees. Sometime being too fair comes at a cost to employees who consistently exceed expectations.

The hardest part of the job is finding new and efficient ways of doing this, but this is a challenge that we are constantly encouraged and motivated to accomplish, which brings many rewards from personal growth and satisfaction to sometimes financial rewards.

Most enjoyable part is the ability to continually grow and learn new things on the job and through furthering education at the company's expense.
Pros
yearly bonus, plenty of vacation time and very flexible
Cons
during slow periods, not much room for promotions
