Worked as an analyst and really enjoyed my time there.
It's a very good place to work at and has a bunch of smart people working together. Good option for people looking for their first or second job.

Dirty politics
Some Dude (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON25 October 2018
From 2015 till 2017 it was fun working there but now 2018 it's not a recommended place to work.

New management is inexperienced, some directors take things personal, while some VPs should be changed.

Dirty politics is badly impacting the company.

It's time for a major over-haul or let the Titanic sink.

An ok company
Sales Consultant (Current Employee) –  Toronto, Ontario18 October 2018
The company is lost in the world of technology. Even though they try to position themselves as a competitive company with a modern technology, the product is very outdated. They also try to position themselves as a security solutions provider, but those efforts so far had been pretty fruitless.

The culture was good at one point, but no longer. It had turned into a political swamp with self-congratulating managers that only care about looking good, and don't value their employees. There is a very high turnover of people. Someone may be here today but gone tomorrow. It's hard to keep up even with who is who...
Pros
They give you BlueCat socks as a gift.

Boring products, low salaries, horrible office space layout
SW engineer (Former Employee) –  North York, ON17 January 2018
Most reviews and salaries on here are fake, entered by the HR of the company.
Salaries in Bluecat are on the low end of the IT industry.
Their developers make around 65-75K while in any other equivalent job they could have made 85-95K for junior and intermediate engineers.
The job culture is as of a geriatrics hospital and there is zero vibe in the office (ok, there is a vibe of an elderly home care. I guess)
The only good thing is that the work-life balance. They never work weekends or extra hours which is great.
The office looks like a sweatshop in the far east and there are very few women in the engineering group (and most of them are not in tecky roles). To summarize, I would recommend Bluecat only if you can't find any other job or you don't look for anything challenging in this stage of your life.
Pros
Good work-life balance
Cons
Boring products, low salaries, horrible office space

Unique environment
Technical Account Manager (Current Employee) –  North York, Ontario, Canada7 January 2015
Everyday is an exciting day in the office, never know what to expect. It could be an easy going day and all of a sudden a high urgent issue comes up where it needs to be resolved within minutes. That is what make this job exciting.

From DHCP issues to DNS issues, all types of issues are unique and sometimes complex. It's always interesting to troubleshoot and use tools such as tcpdump and Wireshark to see what's actively happening across the network. Not to mention, seeing interesting messages in syslog's.

Management and co-workers are easy to work with and everyone get's along great. Everyone is open for ideas and ultimately work together to help make everyone's job and life easier.

Productive and fun workplace
Revenue Analyst (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON20 March 2014
My co-workers are very friendly and wonderful people. Everyday is just meaningful. I learned a lot and devloped a lot of skills as an Accountant and Analyst. The most enjoyable part of the job is to be involved in the analysis and decision-making of new projects . Its a challenge during quarter-end and Audit periods. Mid -Management have minimal authority, major decision making is still on top-management.
Pros
Caters breakfast and lunch on a very minimal cost.
Cons
Long hours during month-end and audit periods.
