    I worked at Absolute full-time

    Pros

    New office and good perks (free food, beer, etc.)

    Cons

    Don't expect a long lasting career at this company. The lack of product direction, frequent changes in senior management, and ongoing departmental infighting will eventually result in you being let go or leave on your own. Don't waste your time with Absolute; there are better software companies in Vancouver.

    I worked at Absolute full-time

    Pros

    Great product and has a chance to explode if they market it correctly. Do invest in employees on training.

    Cons

    Below market pay. They have taken away the chance to hit quarterly accelerator's. Which means less in employee pocket and more in company based on your performance. A lot of pressure from senior management, especially quarter end. Job can be stressful due to this. May consider training for managers up to C level on how to treat people.

    Advice to Management

    Better bonus plans, invest more on performance. Provide senior level training on how to treat employees.

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

    Pros

    Decent work environment, close to amenities, easy access from skytrain. Hours of work is flexible and the on-boarding process was memorable.

    Cons

    Frat-house environment with senior management, although they are all gone today replaced over the last 3 years. The company has struggled to have an identity in an increasingly complex business environment.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. The last three years have been a big improvement, although the new branding doesn't instill confidence.

    We appreciate your feedback. As you know, we announced the divestiture of our two secondary solutions in July. This was done in an effort to re-establish a singular focus on our flagship technology, Absolute DDS. This decision has allowed us to build a new brand and sales approach ...

    I have been working at Absolute full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Really not many to speak of unless you think free soft drinks and the occasional free pizza really are employment perks! Well there is free popcorn too so maybe that will swing it for some job seekers! It’s a great place to work if you want to learn what not to do and if you want to pick up tips on how to destroy a company quickly. And, if politics and backstabbing are your thing – you will love it here!

    Cons

    It was once a really good place to work but it’s been going downhill fast for the past few years. There are still some good people here but most have left voluntarily or have been shown the door by a sad excuse for an HR department. Senior management has destroyed a company that was once great and it gets worse every day, led by an out of control CEO. Even more amazing is that...

    Advice to Management

    Start from the top and clean house. Try to motivate the employees you have left and actually invest in them; don’t just talk about it. You need to fix morale, word on the street is that Absolute is an awful place to work. And finally, enough of the fake positive reviews on Glassdoor, people are smarter than that!

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

    Pros

    Unique differentiator on main (and now only) product.

    Cons

    Recent announcement to divest companies purchased within the last 5 years suggests that the company made a serious strategic blunder investing in those areas and will be now be experiencing significant fallout. Company is a one-trick pony completely dependent on a seriously eroding PC business. Heavy investment over the last 5 years was made on products now to be divested, at the expense of products that remain. The...

    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...

    I have been working at Absolute

    Pros

    No one does what we do, so if you like to geek around it can be fun. Management is loose, so there isn't much pressure.

    Cons

    Compensation is terrible. Senior management is not competent or mature. Questionable ethics and financial practices. Been a money-loser for years. How long can this keep up? Comic nepotism.

    Advice to Management

    The problem begins and ends with you, so what is there to say?
