Loved working here, great coworkers, free food and coffee. Casual atmosphere, had a great and understanding boss, and upper management is really nice too.

People on the floor were nice
Operational and Production Purchasing Manager (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC5 February 2018
The manufacturing people really do try their best under circumstances

Managements answer to problems is to fire people. Four women fired without cause and replaced by men. Low moral throughout.

Great workplace with great people and culture
IT / Business Intelligence / Inside Sales (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC20 April 2016
Shearwater is a great place to work and I would definitely recommend it to anyone interested. They are the predominant company in their industry and everyone there is happy to work to keep them there. I've never worked with so many people I got along with so well.

Job Culture
Senior management strives to implement a culture of fun activities, team work and acceptance but fails on some major fundamentals of these things.
Manager (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC7 February 2014
The pay is fair, the benefits are reasonable. The cultural environment is autocratic and critical, a hierarchical system. This company lacks strong leadership.
Pros
free food, table tennis, Foosball, cake on your birthday.
Cons
insecure leadership. Young company trying "desperately" to find it's place in the world.
