    Disapproves of CEO

    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!!!

Only the "talkers" will get promoted (PMs and BAs). One exception to this, there is one team manager...
