Visibility is required to move up
Vice President (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON22 April 2017
Hard work is appreciated but hard work with visibility is key to progressing here. Management is also more authoritarian than most companies so while there is room to convince management of your ideas, it is harder to do so.

Great place to work!
Electronics Repair Technician (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON27 January 2017
I worked with some very smart and friendly people. Learned a ton. One of the few companies where the employees input actually matters. Above average salary. Almost everyone starts off as contract, and most end that way. Few contract employees are hired on full time.
Pros
Great workplace and people.Good salary.
Cons
Contracts workers are rarely hired full time.

Senior Financial Analyst (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON5 January 2017
It is good industry, entertainment, employees are given out free movie tickets sometime. Workplace is nice and open that enhance social communication. However top management is so isolated and not easily to reach to, even direct report level.

Even working in finance, the most enjoyable part of my daily activities are working with engineering and manufacturing group.
Pros
free movie tickets
Cons
long working hours and not receive any recognition from top management

Senior Management to review it's team

Receptionist (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON5 January 2015
answering all incoming calls form Theaters around the world with digital issues. Great incoming guests and agents, having them sign in and get them escorted to the right person or area.

Booking board rooms for different dept meetings and doing odd jobs for the Hr dept. Lots of interactions with all the employees who make working here a wonderful place
