Poor Management
Network Administrator (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB30 December 2016
Work as on-site Tech for 7 years which was great as I did not have to work in branch. Will throw employee under the bus for poor management actions. Very top down while trying to convince you that you had input.
Pros
Worked On-Site
Cons
Poor Management

Best work environment ever
Systems Analyst (Current Employee) –  Woodbridge, ON4 December 2016
At Microage working as onsite tech is fun. Accessing and resolving issues for users at all over Canada and international with remote sessions is mind blowing experience. Management and co-workers too great to work with. Hardest and most enjoyable part of this job is to provide support to users in India. It was hardest to schedule meetings with users in India but it is enjoyable because i learn lot from it.
Pros
Flexible lunch hours
Cons
Very less over time

Amazing place
Service Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Swift Current, SK17 October 2016
The entire business is simply amazing to work for. The staff is great, the customers are always enjoyable to work with. It has been a pleasure working for this great company.

Some days are not as enjoyable, and sometimes stressful, depending on the situations we encounter.

Regardless of the good and bad days, I will greatly miss working here.

Fun place to work. Limited career opportunities.
Team Lead / Project Analyst (Former Employee) –  Woodbridge, ON16 May 2016
People is what makes this place great.
There are, however, certain departments that are just miserable.
Overall, this has been the best experience so far in the workforce.

More like a collection of small companies under one big roof
Order Desk Specialist (Current Employee) –  Vaughan20 May 2015
Pro's:

- Good work/life balance (8:30am-5pm). Rarely have to stay late and if you do, overtime pay is provided
- Many nice ppl who work at the Company, including the owners
- Steady work ( decent job security )
- Easy work (sometimes a Con). A place where you can take your hour lunch and 15 breaks on a daily basis
- Laid back/casual attitude and dress code.

Con's:

- Zero chance for advancement (and they tend to advance the wrong ppl). No internal postings or HR department, which is shocking for a company of this size
- Repetitive work. Not what you would call exciting
- Managers who are under-qualified and do very little to impress unless you are friends or family (nepotism is a HUGE problem)
- Little incentive for you to work hard. Employees are given the same/small cost of living increase, regardless of performance.
