Specialist (Former Employee) –  Vaughan, ON5 September 2017
I worked there during the previous management for 4 years. It was a tough job but i really enjoyed it and learned a lot. I went to places and met people all over the world. Some previous co-workers are still my friends.
Work can be stressful sometimes with long hours. Other than that, it was great. I left because pay was not enough.
Pros
travel
Cons
long hours

Techanical Specialist (Former Employee) –  Waterloo, ON14 June 2017
Company is great if you are an engineer. For manufacturing technicians, the work can be mundane and boring sometimes.

The most challenging part of the job was dealing with logistics of production in manufacturing.

There were interesting problems to solve as well with access to cutting edge technology.
Pros
Interesting technologies and work
Cons
Long hours and little gratitude

Used to be a family oriented balanced work place
Field Service Technologist (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON26 October 2015
Since the 2nd generation took over family owned Optech, Decline in R&D, decline in sales and the market share pushed the owners to sell the company to Teledyne. Since then the technology drain and the work place squeeze to save a dime spending the a dollar is continuing.

Amazing co-workers trying to do the best they can but brutally managed.

Teledyne Dalsa is a welcoming place with interesting projects to get involved with. It was liberating to be given the freedom to incorporate your own ideas and contributions to a project. The device testing positions have a good mix of hands-on work as well as computer programming and coding.

A good place to work struggling with the current competitive landscape
Product Support and Validation Specialist (Former Employee) –  Waterloo23 August 2015
I started at DALSA in 1991 as employee #25.

The corporation succeeded at every turn.

Advancement within the company was possible with expressing the desire and then executing on the plan.

In recent years the corporation has been facing headwinds of CMOS competition in their historical strong markets.

Coworkers are knowledgable and helpfull.

The hardest part of the job was having to part ways after 25 years on the job.
