Mechanical Engineering (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 16 January 2018
Internal politics; worst company to work for now (used to be good when older employees were there) Engineering, procurement, quality are all fighting with each other. Production is ok department to work with, so is camera department. Optical engineering is mess (the leader is great but works on a very top level)
Vice President (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 22 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.

Coworkers and atmosphere are casual. Depending on department/job type, work can sometimes be tedious. Management is generally responsive to concerns. Benefits and vacation time is great, if you can get full time.

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.
It is good industry, entertainment, employees are given out free movie tickets sometime. Workplace is nice and open that enhance social communication.
Senior Financial Analyst (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 5 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.
free movie tickets
long working hours and not receive any recognition from top management
Manager (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 22 October 2016
Working at IMAX means working for one of the most innovative companies in audiovisual technology combined with all that is good about the world of movies. It is also a hub for smarts and an tech genius. Work is always challenging, always changing so its never boring. Management allows people to develop their initiative, which is the company's secret of success
Amazing Flexible Management with great corporate culture
Food and Beverage Cashier/ usher July (Current Employee) – Niagara Falls, ON – 30 December 2015
At the Imax theatre, everyone gets along and the employees want to make you feel welcome. We have great corporate culture here and overall a good work day, and even though its a typical summer job working at a movie theatre, I personally enjoy going to work. There are many lists provided to make sure you get everything done on time and the managements main goal is to make you successful at what you do. Overall though it is a great place to work and I really enjoy being there
Director, Infrastructure and Operation (Current Employee) – Mississauga – 28 April 2015
I enjoy working at IMAX and given the opportunity I would recommend anyone to the company. The exposure to advanced technology and a commitment to achievement stand out as important traits for an employer.

Customer Service (Current Employee) – Niagara Falls, ON – 15 January 2015
There isn't two days alike in a week. Every day is indeed a new day as you will have guests from all over the world. These people have different cultures and don't automatically adapt to Canadian culture when their passports receive the stamp to show they passed through our borders. You have to co-habitate with these differences if you want to work in tourism. Most of our staff throughout the high peak season is students. As a Supervisor you are there to enrich this experience for the students but also keep them in line with the job at hand. My most favourite part of the job is working with the Korean people. I enjoyed it so much that i decided to learn the language. It is very difficult but have had some success. I am hoping that one of the local colleges will offer it soon as they already offer mandarin and japanese courses. I would enroll in George Brown College in Toronto as they offer a beginner and secondary Korean courses but unfortunately doing the beginner course would require me to drive weekly to Toronto throughout the winter months. Their requirement for the secondary course is that you are successful in completing the beginners course. A local church has a Korean mass on Sunday evenings as i just learned at Christmas time. I am going to try my best to attend. So far it has not been convenient due to weather or I am scheduled to work during that time. I like to work and keep busy and hopefully this shows in my performance.
