Abusive work envirnment
Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Burlington, ON13 November 2018
Lack of clear direction and a very weak and incompetent management team. Roles are not clearly defined any many people are checked out. You will get burned out if you try to make a difference. All the positive reviews about the Burlington,ON office are falsely manufactured.

Stay Away
Sales (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON2 August 2018
Cheap company, doesn't care about their employees, they expect to keep people while paying peanuts. The turnover in the Ottawa office is unbelievable, in very department. People can't wait to leave. I've lost count the amount of times I noticed employees searching for new jobs while on the job....
Pros
they pay more than Employment Insurance
Cons
Too long to list

Not a great work environment
Regional Operations Manager (Former Employee) –  Whitby, ON16 October 2018
A great deal of politics and and back stabbing. Not a healthy work environment when everyone is looking to watch their back. The old timers believe they rule and the new talent is lost

High-paced and rewarding environment
Marketing (Current Employee) –  Burlington, ON17 December 2018
The Laboratory Automation team based out of Burlington is the right place for someone who likes working in a dynamic environment where each individual has a lot of ownership for their own success.

The group has a small company feel and people are encouraged to do what's right to move the business forward. This comes with a lot of empowerment and flexibility, but can also lead to high demands, especially when things get busy.

Plenty of experienced employees that have been around for ten years plus, balanced with new employees following a recent period of rapid growth. This has led to a good mix of skills and viewpoints.

Definitely helpful for prospective employees to be excited by science, technology, robotics, etc. If you're motivated by helping scientists do great research, then this could be the ideal place for you.

I personally find the leadership strong and possessing of a good vision for continuing to grow and develop the business.
Pros
Interesting work, freedom to operate, strong leadership
Cons
Work-life balance challenges at times

Managment old outdated systems and training
Bilingual Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Ottawa West, ON21 August 2017
Over all it requires complete make over of the system and applications.
Outdated just like the management of CSR department.
Company does not invest in the upkeep of the call centre.
Its processes, software or equipment.
Very out dated processes and management is still working like its
1986.
also people have worked there forever and are hard determined to make sure no new people move up anywhere even get ride of you,
if they are threatened of loosing there job.
Pros
Not many Pros
Cons
no possabilies to move up ever.
