Learned allot about order management. Unfortunately, the co-worker who was to train me was not as effective. However, management stepped in and rectified the issue.

There is a good work / life balance, people are very nice and are great to talk to if you have a question to ask. Depending who your manager is, your work will vary.

Management is making decisions based on short term financial targets which always fail and make company falling apart
The merges/acquisitions won't give any benefit to foundation of the product line, but only benefit upper level. In return, employees are being taken advantages.

If you are thinking about a job with this company then think again.

if you are on salary expect to work over 70 hours a week.


forget about a personal life.

they own you.
Pros
there aren't any
Cons

Company have seen a better days. High turnover. Low salaries (lower than average in industry). No defined software development process.

Middle management is mostly pushing, therefore constant scope creeps. People are different from department to department. Some teams look like retirement house. Some teams are really enjoyable to work with. However, overall atmosphere is quite depressing.


After working there for 2 years I found much better job.
Pros
Good work / life balance
Cons
Low salary, depressing environment, no job security, no software development process, weak management

I was in a team of 2 developers in charge of developing a Web app. This is a big company with less work pressure. They have coffee for 60 per month and restaurant in base floor

Shift work in itself is challenging but allows more work to be done. Good place to learn and advance with technology. The management does not easily trust workers. However there are many great opportunities to help customers daily and very rewarding.
Pros
great position to help customers in service an moves add and changes.
Cons
Distant relationship with management.

This was my fourth coop placement, it was pretty good, however it did get boring at times. The work variety was very small, so I ended up doing very similar stuff through the course of my placement.

It has been forever since I received a decent raise that I would actually feel/see besides a few bucks on the paycheque. Management acknowledges that I deserve to be paid more although HR thinks otherwise. HR does not believe in promoting people, but rather looks at driving people out, with their lack of assistance when they are called upon and providing cookie cutter answers for many issues raised.
Pros
Most work colleagues are great
Cons
unfair compensation, long hours, more work for less pay
