Various Positions (Former Employee) – Pointe-Claire, QC – 15 October 2018
A very driven and hard working organization striving to be the best. A typical day is 8 am to 530 pm but you really do learn a lot if you have the right managers. They are demanding but business acumen and big business exposure.
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.
Free 24/7 gym, great cafeteria
Long hours, no compensation for increasing profitablity
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.
Program Manager (Current Employee) – Pointe-Claire, QC – 24 April 2017
Good work and life balance, 3 weeks vocation, 5 days working from home, 5 personal days. On site free gym. On site nurse. On site cafeteria with affordable price. Good for beginners, pretty stable company but can be intense.
On Site gym, cafeteria, nurse, continuous training
Not flexible working hour, has to come to work on public holiday, micromanagement, not much advancement room
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.
Future was as great place to learn and the environment was dynamic and exciting. I developped my sense of urgency and how to work effectively in a team and with different people and personalities. The work was very fast paced and employees held to strict SOP and so I was able to become more accurate with my results and faster at my work.
Customer Service (Former Employee) – Pointe-Claire, QC – 28 September 2014
There are many great people that work at Future but the main problem are the suckups that are in management. Most of them are not needed and most of them don't do anything. They hassle you for the stupidest things. They want you to do everything and then some for such low pay. There's too much harassment and over work. Lots of times I would work until 10pm at night from 8:30am. co-workers that can't pull the same weight as you get promoted. Its nuts. Loved the years and some people that I worked with but its too stressful for no reason. People are NOT organized and make the littlest thing personal.
An undisputedly successful industry leader. Lots of benefits including subsidized cafeteria and on-site gym. Extremely antagonistic and sometimes overly competitive internal work environment. Competition wins out over collaboration every time.
