Great Social Environment - Great People
Developer, Font-End Programmer (Current Employee), Kanata, OnOctober 24, 2013
Pros: advancement, reconition
Cons: poor planning, abrubt overtime
Great people, always having a social event for the community or for employees.

Fun and relaxing work environment, but very much geared towards getting the next feature out the door.

Sometimes overaggressive in planning, and thus deadlines and overtime tend to cause undue stress.

Pizza Fridays Rock!
Inside sales - International (Current Employee), Kanata, ONAugust 16, 2013
Pros: pizza fridays..social events
Cons: lack of opportunity for advancement
Typical day at work..Head down. dialing.. head down talking..

I learned that it is important to work in an environment where you feel valued.

Management can be like a revolving door depending on what department you work in.

Great co workers, fun, easy to be around.

Hardest part of the job is getting management to recognize talent that stands before – more... them.

Most enjoyable part of the job was talking to great people all over the world. – less

It is a business that uses technology but doesn't really understand what it is capable of.
Java Developer (Current Employee), Ottawa, ONJanuary 6, 2013
Pros: great people
Cons: salary is mediocre, messy code, old timers club, no stock options.
A blind eye to technical debt is what I would say is the main/only real issue with this company.

Otherwise, this is a great company to be at in terms of the people you will work with. I love coming into work for the people.

Okay workplace, zero advancement
Account Development (Sales) (Former Employee), Kanata, ONJanuary 15, 2013
It is a decent place to work wherein you have Pizza Fridays every other week and intimate lunches with the CEO once/twice a year where he takes feedback from every employee (not contractors, though).

There is no room to grow in the company. Compensation is very limited and basic where you will constantly feel a crunch and need for a second household – more... income. Company has a "hire from outside/fresh blood" policy, hence do not encourage current employees to move up or across.

Good experience for starters, but you stop learning and growing after the 6 month mark unfortunately. – less
