Engineer (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 12 November 2017
They offer lots of trendy perks like table tennis and free snacks in order to appeal to people. This is in place of having a good culture, solid management or real respect for employees. There are not many senior people here so it's not a good place to be mentored or learn how to grow in your career. If you have kids, you will be in the minority and managers won't understand that you need to be there for them sometimes. Engineering managers are hired from within and have few people skills or management experience/training. Most people are overworked and the culture consists of people just hired out of university instead of seasoned, talented professionals. This means coworkers are less helpful and more immature. There seems to be a pretty high turnover rate.
Beware! Disappointing career move. Company is headed by incompetence.
Software Engineer (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 17 July 2017
I worked here for just under two years. In the beginning The company tries make you feel important and part of the company, practice starts to do window very quickly. I found a lot of favouritism and neglect also. If you do not agree with certain things about that that company that direction then you will be looked at as an outsider. They have a very cultish culture and it appears that only a select few reaped the benefits of the company. The one thing that really was disturbing about this company was the lack of family and work balance. If you call in sick or do not come in to work or if your child is sick, you feel as if you've committed a crime. I would never advise anyone to work for this company. There is no such a thing as an average eight hour workday, they will try to keep you as long as they can. Do you do this by offering free snacks and paid lunches and dinners. This is only to entice you to stay as long as you can. Management needs to wake up and realize that this company is actually going down in a spiral quicker than they can imagine.
Free lunches. Table tennis. Games.
Under paid compared to industry, Modern-day slave shop, incompetent management
