Everything else sucks

Wasn't a bad company
IT Help Desk Analyst (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC6 March 2019
It's a really old style company with a lot of upper management problems. That mostly translates to a lot of waiting before being approved to do work. Restricted internet is kind of annoying too.

Terrible company.
Executive Chef, Personal Chef to Robert Miller (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC27 February 2019
Very profit-forward company, with little regard to culture or personnel. Very low quality kitchen, very little investment in staff training or motivation.

Nice place to work, long hours though and not so great pay
MARKETING SUPORT REPRESENTATIVE (Current Employee) –  Pointe-Claire, QC24 February 2019
They have a decent cafeteria and a gym on site with lots of classes to choose from. It is a good environment to learn but can be stressful and overworking employees seems to be usual business.

Credit Analyst - Export department (Former Employee) –  Pointe-Claire, QC15 January 2019
I met the best team to work with at Future Electronics. But I`m not sure about management. It didn`t feel very fair. Also, I found salary wise very low.

Ok company that requires new thinking
Product Manager - Wireless (Current Employee) –  Pointe-Claire, QC5 February 2018
The company has solid bone, however it is a very demanding place to work. You are expected to work very long hours with minimal resources. People are great at the company, but they have a lot of work to do in order to attract the next generation.
Pros
Free 24/7 gym, great cafeteria
Cons
Long hours, no compensation for increasing profitablity

Tax Administrator (Former Employee) –  Pointe-Claire, QC15 May 2017
I have worked for Future Electronics for 17 1/2 years, I have learnt a lot working there and would recommend this company to anyone. I have had a lot of friends there and people are very friendly.
I was very sad to leave there as I met a lot of people, but due to a family emergency I had to relocate to Ontario.
I would work at the company again if I had the chance.
Pros
Christmas lunch, great incentives
Cons
hours could be 37 1/2 hours rather than 40 hours

CUSTOMER SERVICE ADVOCATE / ORDER CHANGE DEPT (Former Employee) –  Pointe-Claire, QC20 March 2017
Nice temp work but too repetitive, monotonous and felt like a number.
My team was not one of the greatest and the training was not efficient enough. And the monotony made the working hours seem longer

Cons
Too much politics

Many amenities and potential for job growth
Product Manager (Former Employee) –  Pointe-Claire, QC29 August 2016
Many opportunities for career advancement with on site training and employee development a focus.
I learned how to motivate and manage employees, how to manage multiple tasks simultaneously in an effective and detail oriented way.
The hardest part of the job was not having the option to do part time work after maternity leave.
The most enjoyable part of the job was recognition and appreciation on a regular basis by upper management.
Pros
On site gym and cafeteria
Cons
No part time employment opportunities
