Feast or famine work load, for a good cause

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Generally a great place to work, while it lasted. Great pay, smart and friendly co-workers, and a sense of pride in helping to manufacture instruments that save lives and make life better.


pay, learning environment, positive co-workers


unpredictable work load, undeveloped processes and work instructions, "end justifies the means" mentality

Hard working environment with many friendly people to help you succeed

Work is from 9-5. Friendly people, no one was micro managing, you were trusted to do your work. Stressful at times, but it was fulfilling work. I have no complaints. I'd love to work there again! I'm a student so I was there on a co-op, and is why I left the company.

Fantastic place to work

At PE a typical working day is 8 hrs. Every day is a fun day at PE. The most important thing for the success of the work is the working environment that anyone can found here. A very collaborative and helpful co-worker, dynamic administration and management are the keys of the PE.

Talented work colleagues

Its a decent enough place to work and has talented and helpful working culture at peer level. Good level of task ownership by most workers. Work overload can be an issue.

An ordinary day at work

Everyone was very professional and nice and I always had support from co-workers. The job took some time for me to get used to, but after a while it was simple.


Working lunches. Lunch was provided and I got paid for the hour.


Difficult to get a day off work

Great introduction into the industry

Large multinational company, and still growing. Many organizational changes afoot, and many challenging learning opportunities arise. However, management does not present a united front and are blatant in displays of favoritism and bias.


- global industry


- a lot of work to be done, yet company won't approve more headcount

Great work environment with a great team.

Site is now closed and operations have moved to Boston. The Montreal site was a great company to work for with an excellent team.

No job security, no chance to advance within.

Managers do not look after the comany. They are only concerned about next quarter performance. Expect to be bullied by your manager. Restructuring is a constant concern here.


salary is good.


bully management, constant restructuring.
