Overall great company
This is a great company to work for. The people are amazing. The culture is unique, it's fun, but the work demands a lot and it can weigh on you. The work is fun and interesting, but there lacks direction and collaborative internal tools. The president is a kind and generous person who genuinely cares about his employees.

Problem stems from the top-top
Unprofessionalism and aggressiveness coming from exec team. They are constantly fighting and pushing this stress to vp's, where it then trickles down to the managers and employees.

Expérience dépend de l'équipe dans laquelle on travaille
mais il y a des équipes dans lesquelles les pratiques sont inacceptables, incluant du harcèlement psychologique. Tant que le propriétaire / CEO ne veut pas voir l'évidence et ne se pose pas de questions sur la haute rotation d'employés, la place continuera d'être toxique pour beaucoup.

worst place very bad experience
Lack of security of the job, always under stress that will lose the job, poor integration, enclave spirit of small groups and difficult to penetrate. The managers dismiss people under mood, in same way that they hire them. Totally lack of professionalism. Gossips about other groups in company and former employees.
Not worth to take the risk despise the facade advantages. Those advantages could be found in other places. Worst treatment that I had in my more of 10 years of career.

Only if you want a bad experience.
Pros
cafeteria, flex hours
Cons
security of job, stressful, never feel like belong, direspectful coments on the back

A joke
Junior team leader leading us nowhere, who makes his technological choices based on what his "best pal" in the team tells him, pal who appears to be the biggest toxic incompetent rookie ever.

Project doomed from the beginning. Nobody takes you warnings into account.


One week you're praised by your manager for your good job regardless despite how bad the project was lead and you're welcomed again in "the great Genetec family", the next week, after one more manager change, you're fired because some executive is infuriated by how the project is going...


Management does not give a single clue about employees, you will always be nothing more than a production resource, easily flushable.


Management look like they have no idea where the company should be going, improv club with nice cars and expensive suits.


The company makes money on existing cutomers and have no future vision.


Bad management, toxic people, the salaries and benefits are quite good to try to keep people from running away, but just have a look at how high the turnover is.


If you are a rookie or a not so good developer looking for a job with poor opportunities but with a bit higher salary, if you have no team spirit and don't give a clue about the company you work for and only go to work for the money, this is a place for you.
Pros
nice food for the price
Cons
everything but the food

Genetec is a fast growing company and rightfully so. The CEO and founder of this company is one of a kind and cares deeply about the work that this company is doing. This has created a very exciting, challenging, and team oriented working environment.

I worked as a summer intern developing a business strategy for a vertical market the company is entering. It was an awesome company and their motto is "Work Hard, Play Hard!" If given the opportunity upon graduation, I will be back there.
Pros
On site Bistro, friendly work environment
Cons
Lots of travel

Difficult culture to navigate in
Regular personnel shedding that make people nervous all the time. Small group of selected engineers work closely to the founder and owner leaving no room for others' contributions.
Pros

Cons
No clear policies

Good company but Technical Support department is a mess
Every level 1 techs are overloaded with work and doing too much multitasking. You gotta do the shift for after hours for long time and you have to stay at night if you get a call even 1 min before your shifts ends. And if you come late next morning then you get a warning. Management is there to make your life difficult and threatening you to put you outside.There must be a reason there is always hiring in a Technical support department. After worked in Technical support department for a year i am out for good.
Pros
Salary/Benefits
Cons
After hour shift for long time, Rude Management and it is all about overloaded call center work for a big company.

Really good place to work
Genetec is a great company that really values it employers. They treat interns really well. Interns also have a high chance of getting hired as full time employees after their term

Great company - Advancement depends on your manager
Great company, and you feel the growth everywhere around you.

However, your advancement depends largely on your manager.


Bonus point for the amazing cafeteria. The chef is welcoming suggestions if you want anything on the menu.
Pros
Cafeteria, fast-growing
Cons
Advancement
