Great working environment, friendly warm people that make you feel welcome from day 1. Very supportive management. Sandvine cares about their people and do the small things that make a difference and a great place to work.

The atmosphere of the office is very easygoing and all the members of the company get along well and create a space that included everybody and their ideas. Lots of innovation and a lot of growth opportunities available.

Has changed for the worse, lots of people leaving.
Used to be good but got worse after private equity.

New Sr. leadership not visible, communication is negative and lacking, all about money

Culture has taken a hit.

Teams don’t work well together
Pros
Still some good people, managers; free beer; snacks
Cons
Culture lacking, unsure about future, salary not competitive with other companies

Very much recommended to doers and those who are not 9-to-5 type of employees. A fun place to work. You can extend your responsibilities as much as you want.

One of the best places to work. has a great work culture and ethos. Salary and benefits are at the lower end of the scale. There are no pension provisions so the overall compensation package is below average.

Company culture tries to make it a good fun place to work. Profit sharing gives a few extra bucks now and then. Small teams so you still can feel important, though of course that means working harder. They promote a work hard play hard philosophy but in reality it`s almost always just work hard and harder, especially for those not in Waterloo.

CTO (Dave Caputo) is awesome, as are all the founding members and very top rung of the leadership.


However, there is something seriously wrong with the rest of upper management (Directors, AVPs, VPs) they seem to do nothing but spin their wheels in place, keep the status-quo, and stifle creativity and progress. If you are top talent you will actually get bored and frustrated here very fast to the point of either having to quit or being let go if you try to hard to disturb them with fresh or useful ideas.


There is also a lot of preferential treatment. You either kiss you-know-what and have it easy no matter how poor of an employee you are, or you don`t and are mistreated, abused, and eventually let go or forced to quit.


Also do not expect fair performance evaluations or salary increases. The two are strangely unrelated.


This could be an absolutely great company, and at some point it was, but it`s being slowly destroyed from within by poor management who is driving away top talent and replacing them with mediocre Yes-Men.
Pros
Culture, profit sharing, technology, Ceo, Cto
Cons
Poor Upper-Management, useless performance evaluations, consistent long and hard working hours, little chance for advancement, creativity stifling

My Typical day is working with materials and assessing audits. I have learned alot through this company eg: Internal Auditing, SAP systems, Receiving, Return materials tracking. Co_workers are the highlight of the day becasue there are so many to get to know.

the most enjoyable part of my job is knowing that I am doing it right. I have great satisfaction knowing that I have satisfied my peers.
Pros
Awesome people
