    I have been working at Faronics Corporation full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I've been with this company for more than 12 years and have seen many talented people come and go. We had a "right-sizing" or "restructuring" happen in early 2013 where several people got let go - alibi the ratings you see here. Since then the company has become more focused and business driven - revenues are up year over year! The company has embraced "the cloud", making it easy for customers to deploy the 8-10...

    Pros

    Salary is in and around market average Downtown Vancouver location, ideal commute location by bus or Skytrain

    Cons

    The career posting was for a "Support Engineer" but the title should really be for a "Application Support Engineer" which accurately reflects what the role is about. In this role you are not supporting hardware, not supporting end user issues...you are supporting software that is built and offered by the company. If you do not have an application and/or a programming background. if you have not used programmer/application...
