Very cool fun people to work WITH

everyone is treated like family. it is truly a family run business despite having 125+ employees.It is fun to go in to work and not being just another number.Sometimes there are personal stuff happening at home where you might need time off. The company is very understanding and works with you to ensure you take all the time off you need. They truly understand the meaning of work life balance and ensure you have everything you need to take care of your personal affairs.If you are loyal to the company, they return the favour 10 times over.

Pros

Family atmosphere - fun - cool

Cons

Sometimes having too much fun, and get carried away not wanting to leave work

A breath of fresh air

In an industry where video surveillance manufacturers are large corporate entities where you're another number, i3 is a breath of fresh air. The culture at i3 is tremendously warming and makes you feel at home as if you're a family. Your opinions and, most importantly, you matter. I can't say enough good things about the management group. Each has helped shape me as a human or propel my career forward in some shape or form. They're all valuable mentors that stay in touch with me, even once my time at i3 was over.In addition to the fantastic people who work there, they're leading edge when it comes to technological advancements with incredibly fair pricing - making it pretty easy to win big deals on the sales side.

Pros

People, Culture, Technology

Cons

USA Benefits need improvement

Too much politics and interference

My review is going to be very negative as I never enjoyed working there. The Project Manager was incompetent and the whole workplace topsy turvy. I do not recommend it at all. Period.

Productive and fun workplace

To do all aspects of supply chain management working with vendors and manufacturers, analyze product demands and sales, analyze stock, trends. Execute purchase orders. Track and expedite existing orders. Work closely and provide inputs with different departments within company like accounting, sales, production, customer care, technical support.

Pros

Family environment, birthday celebrations

Dull and Stressful place to work

Sales people run this place. Which means it gives them right to treat other departments like they own them. Management is biased. Salary and growth is based on how much money you made the company.

Pros

Nothing

Cons

Biased Management, Stressful environment, No Job Security

Management is rude

This is a family own business but the environment is so toxic, they treat employees like dirt. The managers make rude racist remarks like do you eat dog in your country? They have a tradition of doing a roast for new employees where they ask personal inappropriate questions like how many kids do you have? are you married? do you have a girlfriend? How many siblings do you have? How long have you been in Canada? All in front of all the employees. They also have cameras everywhere, spying on their employees. So many people have left this company. Worst place ever.

Family-run business

They are a family-run business that develops their own VMS and NVR software and assembles their own NVR/DVRs. T he server hardware is produced in China. Everything else they offer is OEM made for them. They provide a regular staff party gathering to help boost moral. That is the positive.

Casual work environment and great people to work with

A family workplace culture that promotes fellowship among employees. Very interesting technology from all aspects of the surveillance industry. Always innovating and using new technology.

Pros

Welcome lunch parties

Cons

Unpredictable owner

A place to start some toronto experience.

The Culture of the workplace is welcoming and friendly. You work hard and...you want to. This shows major influence to the employees. Vy Hoang is probably the best salesman and EVP one could meet in this industry. While he keeps out of the politics, this man works very hard. The VP of people and Operations is Exceptional. Truly. She is the glue that binds the company together. She rocks! If you want to learn about BI, truly and what hardware and software has to do with it, this is the place to apply.

Pros

Great sales people to chat with

Cons

Same as any job

Not for Long term

This is a company you come to in order to gain experience and then move on to something else. This is a family run business and they are not known for following ESA or Health & Safety Standards. There are a lot of biases due to the nature of the ownership and conflicts arise between staff and management or staff and employed family members that are never resolved in a fair manner. Family wins every time regardless of the situation. There is a recruiting department however there is no Human Resources department so there is no one for staff to turn to for help. Conflicting directives are given to staff as management does not seem to discuss new policies and/or procedures. Changes can happen on a whim. Company has potential but needs an overhaul on management. Staff at this company no longer respect their leaders. Know what you are getting into. Go there with the mindset that you are just going for the experience. Be forewarned that the job you are hired for is not the job you will likely be doing - they will add unrelated tasks and change tasks on a whim. e.g. Admin and account management staff are expected to perform shipping and production duties however this task is not included as a task on your job description.

Pros

The staff (non-family) at this company are wonderful people.

Cons

The owners and their family

One of the best companies to work for with a family environment.

i3 International prides itself on its capability to innovate intelligent software and security systems. It's a welcoming work environment with many opportunities to grow and learn. Everyone is given an equal opportunity to excel.
