    Treated like crap if you are lower than Manager level

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsPeople I work with are very good and supportive

    ConsMontreal HQ and the drones that work there. They do not respect anyone who is does not work there and have little regard for you if you do not have Manager in your title. Very very little opportunity for career advancement.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake a serious look at this Company that you are DESTROYING...it is the people on the ground floor who are supporting your grandeous titles and your flamboyant lifestyles...you are taking salaries that you do not deserve and pushing out substandard products. You are a disgrace.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A comedy of errors.

    Technical Integrator (Former Employee) Wichita, KS (US)

    ProsLoved the people who work here. Developed many lasting professional relationships as well as friendships. Compensation was competitive.

    ConsMany developmental errors in the program that cascaded down in the later stages of product development. A very difficult and stressful environment to work in. Due to the continual major design changes in the program, your best effort often felt squandered.
