Great Working Atmosphere
Systems Administrator (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB11 June 2017
The community at NovAtel is great. They provide some lunches, and have sports teams, cafeteria, and are involved in Corporate Challenges.

The pay is good, and there is room for advancement. Some of the management is guilty of micro-managing, but this is a potential problem at a lot of places.

The only GPS company in Calgary who has more than 100 people
Senior GNSS/INS Engineer (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB18 May 2017
NovAtel is the only GPS company in Calgary who has more than employees. For a fresh student from UofC whose major is gps, NovAtel might be the only company he/she can work for. GNSS industry in Calgary is not strong.
