Very nice place

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I have no major complaints, I guess it really depends of your team.The bistro is awesome, there's a gym with a personal trainer and benefits are great. I guess they could do a bit more on the later.

Awesome workplace, very nice benefits, they take care of their employees and everyone was nice. Their products are also very interesting and fun to work with.

Great company, filled with micro managers

They suffocated me with micro-managing and no clear planning. Why hire someone with 30 plus years experience only to micro manage them to frustration.


Great benefits, bistro, friendly environment


Horrible management and that erases everything else.

I enjoyed my time here. Everyone was very welcoming. I was an intern however they made me feel like an equal employee. The perks of being an intern here are massive.

Fun workplace, no room for creativity. Smart people

Little to no room for creativity, albeit there are some legitimate reasons for it (backward compatibility, clients using older versions, just to name a few). Naturally with such constraints you are not encouraged to think out of the box and explore new ways of doing. I'd even say that's part of the culture. Huge emphasis on value and delivering working products. Maintenance, code refactors, not so much, unless absolutely needed.Pick your fights wisely.

Good internship

Good internship experience where you are able to learn. Interns are integrated with team from the start where you are able to help with the deliverables

Fun first job, great long-term

They really do try to make all the interns feel comfortable in the workplace. I do occasionally share ideas and thoughts with lower level management but don't deal directly with senior managers.


Free 24/7 gym, cheap lunches


Bad for transit

Not just a company but also a family

I have been at Genetec for almost 3 years and am proud to be part of this organization. The CEO cares about the employees and takes the time to make sure everyone is heard. Great culture and ambiance . The sky is the limit !


Free coffee, fruits prior to Covid onsite or virtual exercise classes, bistro and online cooking classes ( During Covid)

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.

Nice place to work

Nice place to work with the professional environment and other benefits including free perks. The management is nice and cooperative. I have learned a lot from here.

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.

poor executive team

-misinformed decision making from executive team based on young, inexperienced management -lots of politics and little respect for people at lower level positions

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.


cafeteria, flex hours


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.


nice food for the price


everything but the food
