Initially, the job was fun and purposeful. Employees were allowed to work somewhat autonomously.
After a change in management, as well as technological advances and a recession, the environment became very stressfully and draining. I observed several of my colleagues being laid off and the realization occurred that at some point I would be too. I was.

Toxic, fear based culture. Some people and managers are good, but most are people pleasers. Do your research on your team and management. Try to interview during work hours and ask for a tour so you can judge the culture yourself. Ask lots of questions.
Pros
Free pop and juice

A day at work involves hopping on multiple customer calls, positioning a win and helping close the deal!

The culture is fantastic, co-workers are great, but there is quite a bit of emphasis on politics. It seems to be an "old boys club".
Pros
Free pop, pizza fridays, good location
Cons
poor salary, below industry average wages

Absolute Software is a good tech company to work for in Vancouver. They are easy to get to via sky train or west coast express and offer a fun place to work each day. They have great benefits but seem to pay on the low side for a lot of their positions in comparison to other similar companies in the area. Still a great employer and highly recommended.

Management needs to let people do their jobs and provide the support. Leads people on about role, mgt and what looks like success. Just not a good place...
Pros

Leads people on about role, mgt and what looks like success

A typical day at work involves working with your sales team to make sales. Management could be better, there is a definite lack of direction that used to be made up for by the culture, but with recent changes in the company's direction -- that doesn't seem to certain anymore.
Pros
Good people
Cons
Poor pay, poor opportunities for advancement, poor management.

Absolute is a great company to work for, that offers unique endpoint management and security solutions in the marketplace. A fast and energetic environment; there's something new each and every day. Absolute is led by a wonderful leadership group, and the people at Absolute are the best. They are the very pulse of the company, and make it a great working environment. I love the autonomy given to me by the leadership group to do my job, but there's tremendous support behind you when you need it. I have learned how to become a better sales professional working at Absolute.
Pros
Good working environment and culture
