Do you like gambling?
Labourer (Former Employee) –  London, ON5 April 2018
This company has huge potential but the wrong people running it.
It's unfortunate the owner does not spend more time on the floor to see that his management just likes to point fingers and hang out all day.
I saw a lot of great talent leave this place because they couldn't put up with being under so much pressure and being asked to come in on Saturdays and Sundays due to the people with even the smallest bit of authority just sitting back and watching.
This company has bosses, not leaders.
Pros
Gym and cheap cafeteria
Cons
Managment

Can be what you make it
Administration (Former Employee) –  Dorchester, ON9 May 2017
Can be a great place to work depending on the department/team you are in. Subsidized home cooked meals are available in the cafeteria. If you keep a positive attitude anything is possible
Pros
great co-workers; great cafeteria
Cons
Focus on profit instead of employees

Poor management keeps this company from realizing it's potential
worker (Former Employee) –  Dorchester, ON9 December 2014
Company produces great products and has the potential to become a very significant supplier within the defense industry; however, poor decisions by upper management and the lowest moral of any place I have worked result in a revolving door of personnel which results in a knowledge loss and poor product.
Pros
Interesting work, busy atmosphere
Cons
No progression or recognition for your work

Excellent Team of People
Engineering Department (Current Employee) –  Dorchester, ON8 September 2014
The best part of working at Armatec is the people. We have all worked very hard to bring this place of employment from a small "Mom and Pop Shop" to where we are today- World Leader in Passive Protection Systems.
Pros
Chef in the kitchen. Flexible work hours.
Cons
The benefits are very expensive and of little benefit.

Poorly managed!
Administration (Former Employee) –  London, ON8 August 2012
Armatec Survivability is a horrible place to work.
Promotions are based on who you know and how much you schmooze.
The culture in general is toxic and a number of senior management are the cause.
It is unfortunate because the products Armatec makes are fantastic.
Pros
some very good people still work there
Cons
culture is toxic
