    I have been working at Intelex Technologies full-time

    Pros

    - Great coworkers! Can't stress this enough. The people here are fantastic - Lots of perks for a company this size. The social atmosphere is very welcoming and friendly

    Cons

    - Work/Life balance is a value on paper but rarely respected by managers - The product itself is riddled with bugs. You'll spend a lot of time here acquiring very specific Intelex knowledge that's hard to take elsewhere - Company is growing by burning out their current employees. The CEO himself went up in front of the entire company during the yearly company meeting and demanded that we spend more time at work... even though a lot of us are already committing so much of ourselves to the company. Shows a genuine lack of regard for the work people are currently putting in - Bonus structure is a joke. You can work your butt off and still see next to nothing for all your hard work

    Advice to Management

    You really need to talk with your employees. For such a small company it's astonishing how little interaction upper management has with their employees

    Thank you for your feedback and suggestions! It's very important for us to hear what our employees are experiencing. I understand what you’re saying about the knowledge you learn may seem unbeneficial but the skills you develop and learn from the knowledge can easily be transferable both internally or externally.

    I have been working at Intelex Technologies full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I have had the opportunity to work for many companies in my career - government run, private, public, small, and large - but I haven't enjoyed any of them as much as I have Intelex. In my opinion this is the best tech company in the GTA. No other company has as honorable a mission as "helping companies reduce their negative impact of the world". Its fantastic that the biggest part of my job is helping other... companies improve themselves to keep their employees safer, make sure they aren't harming the environment, and to build the best and safest products they can. On top of that, the culture here is great and there are tons of unique company perks to make you feel that you are valued and that your hard work is appreciated.

    Cons

    This isn't the kind of company where you can hide in your cubicle, earn a salary, and go home without being noticed. This company is growing and is on a critical growth path that requires everyone be bought in and committed to achieve both their own personal goals as well as the overarching company goals. If you aren't willing to work hard, or you aren't driven, please don't apply.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing the envelope and challenging employees to be the best they can be. Stop merely advocating and being a friendly shoulder to cry on - be a leader and make people want to work hard for you and give their all.

    Pros

    Best product Growth opportunities Above industry average bonus / salaries Approachable management / CEO Systematic and consistent management. My monthly, and annual reviews were never skipped. Sustained effort to keep things as transparent as possible. Helpful employees who take pride and ownership of their work. Great culture. Meaningful work. Game room Supporting every Toronto team by either going there... or watching the game in office with beer and pizza Winter retreat and summer golf Great location.

    Cons

    Company is growing very fast. Unfortunately that caused some employees to get cut. Hence the recent surge in negative reviews. Reality is we are still growing and hiring a lot more.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the transparency. Specially regarding product roadmap. Watch out which departments are losing people and carry exit interviews / anonymous surveys to find the root cause(s).

    I worked at Intelex Technologies

    Pros

    New location is great. The company is a leader in its market niche

    Cons

    As another reviewer mentioned, the CEO runs the company like his own personal kingdom. I know for a fact that the recent positive reviews are fake, planted by loyal subjects. For example: "Company is growing very fast. Unfortunately that caused some employees to get cut." When a company is growing very fast, senior management does NOT cut 25% of the sales team - the very idea is ludicrous. Salary, benefits,... and perks are all meh, but don't you DARE suggest that they could be improved upon. Weekly 8am Friday morning meetings that the CEO runs personally! The entire sales team (who schedules weekly 8am Friday morning meetings for salespeople?!?!) sits in a room together while the CEO berates them individually in front of their peers. The whole process is a waste of time and resources.
