Great place to work
Software Developer (Current Employee) –  Montréal, QC11 September 2015
great technology infrastructure (definitely missed it after leaving for a smaller company) - many people with lots of technical experience that are more than willing to answer questions and help out! - excellent training program for new grads (this is really a great experience and you get to meet and work with people from around the world) - related to previous point: the company is massive and it's exciting working

Very good company
Consultant (Contract) (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC15 March 2015
The team was very good.
People were very friendly.
Located downtown, close to everything.
The building is nice.
International team, no hostility towards non-French speakers.
The environment however is noisy (at some places), people who have to talk and call each other as part of their jobs should not be placed near software developers who need a more quiet environment to think and write software.
Also, too much restrictions on everything (for security reasons). Not possible to download and install your favorite software tools, not even those open source and free ones.
Pros
Salary, location.
Cons
Noisy working place.
