Lack of direction, planning, and adequate staffing levels

(Current Employee)

Pros- Free drinks
- Compensation is barely on par with current market conditions
- Little red tape

Cons- Their mantra of "work hard, and play harder" is just that. In reality, it equates to "just work harder and harder" until you lose your mind
- Lack of direction, and planning; Too much micromanagement
- Constant fighting fires with inadequate management and no long term planning
- Childish atmosphere with talentless management whose focus is just getting by
- Apply the Sandvine values evenly across different divisions
- Sink or swim culture is the norm in some divisions

Advice to Senior ManagementHire people with well rounded skill set with specific emphasis on people skills; and promote from within (to reduce attrition). Learn and adhere to industry best practices to fix core issues long term. Bandaid solutions are not good enough. Cowboy attitude in running the organization is amateurish at best, and downright shameful considering the growth potential.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Company lacking direction

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    I worked at Sandvine full-time


    Pros: Smart and talented leadership. Not largely bureaucratic. Relaxed… Cons: Leadership is not united and lacks impact-making decisions. Employee treatment is mixed, depending on department.… Advice to Senior Management: Treat your employees with respect and look to cultivate them for the long term. Too much… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
