    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.
