    I worked at Absolute full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Weekly Snacks, monthly pizzas and unlimited drinks. Whistler trip yearly mostly subsidized. Christmas party and Children's Christmas party and Flexible hours. Bentall building with renovated office space.

    Cons

    Too many PMs. No promotion for "Doers". Expected OT with no pay (industry standard). Yearly layoffs in the summer for the past 4 years and a couple of minor ones here and there. Open office <-- Decision makers this does not work for developers!!!

    Advice to Management

    Many years ago when the owner was still in charge things were good. But then he retired and things started to go downhill. I've been in the industry (and this company) long enough to see everything. The "doers" are the people (Devs and QAs) who go on their business and do their work they will never get promoted. Only the "talkers" will get promoted (PMs and BAs). One exception to this, there is one team manager...

  5. "A great place to work"

    StarStarStarStarStar
      Current Employee - Software Development Manager in Vancouver, BC

      I have been working at Absolute full-time for more than 8 years

      Pros

      Absolute Software Corporation is the great place to work. It has a very unique business model and a great PD team. It is one of top 100 employer in BC, Canada

      Cons

      The product and technologies are old. There are no new features for quite a while. It's not a innovation company, but nice to stay.

      I worked at Absolute full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Well run company from a financial perspective, stable. Positioned well in a growing market segment with strong corporate partnerships. Mature software platform built on unique set of technologies.

      Cons

      Company is rampant with politics and well known power struggles between current and former executives. Senior management is known to have participated in unethical practices including employee harassment and use of corporate funds for personal gain. Corporate culture is deplorable, highlighted by an ineffective human resources department and unappreciated employees leading to above average turnover.

      Advice to Management

      Develop a strong corporate culture that values employees and promotes loyalty, starting with an effective HR department. Put politics aside and work together to create a strong company, both culturally and financially.
