    I worked at CAREstream Medical full-time

    Pros

    Very good medical products to sell into the health care system. Previous owner had a vision and the drive to build the company to where it has grown to.

    Cons

    Current owners and managers lacking the real leadership needed to see success. They don't fully understand the business, especially pulmonary diagnostics and ventilation and the importance of EMR and HIS integration.

    I worked at CAREstream Medical full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Generally good cameraderie amongst long time staff. RRSP matching is great. lunches bought for staff every two weeks.

    Cons

    Antiquated computer system that is a home system not one suited to a company. Computer system crashes/kicks you out at least 3 times a day. At lease twice a week the whole system crashes and the whole company cannot work as everything is on the computer. this is due to the company trying to save money and using cheap software and hardware rather than investing in a better computer system. The office staff have to work with cheap computers or accessories, cheap chairs and also second hand furniture. The building I work in is a disaster that requires a custodian that looks after the little things like ordering toilet paper and hand towels etc. The company runs out often as that is handled by the VP who is usually too busy think of it. Granted being a VP, toilet paper is the last thing on your mind. It is obvious that staff are not happy by the amount of negative conversations I have heard, yet no one seems to let management know that things could be improved, From what I have heard, when they do mention it, they are told that the money isn't available for changes. New employees do not stay as the staff are very unwelcoming and verging on cold.

    Pros

    Employees get along well and have great support system.

    Cons

    Management are disrespectful, corrupt and invisible. They do not communicate effectively and hold secret meetings. Employees seem to accept the conditions and become complacent because they cannot afford to find other jobs and or have lost their confidence. Great employees leave because they cannot deal with corrupt and arrogant managers.
