    I have been working at Sandvine full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    This is the best job I have ever had! I feel valued as an employee every day from the janitorial staff to the Executive team! They listen to my ideas and value my opinions. The people here are hard workers who work hard and play hard. We have great company events, and tons of work perks to motivate us! The company offers catered lunches for team meetings and lunch and learn events. There is not one person in this company...

    I have been working at Sandvine full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Good engineering work. My engineering skills developed rapidly in this company. Since I have worked for two more companies, I recommend that if you are reasonably okay programmer and engineer, the work here is really good. Deadlines are dealt with critically, but Managers and Directors are helpful if you genuinely were busy fixing bugs or supporting customers I mainly joined this company for good work, and I am...

    Cons

    Managers and Directors overreact way too much to every situation. This is the biggest reason that upsets engineers. The new management is doing surveys aggressively. and this has got slightly better in last few months Work life balance has got better but there are times when I have to work continuously, it is better than my previous companies.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on aggressive growth. Teams are understaffed due to merger. Add resources.

    Pros

    Technical work is good and some good architects are also present.

    Cons

    HR and Finance services team don't communicate, they are not proactive to help employees. Leaders in this domains are more then 8+ years, they have built groups and play politics. And to this some managers are also joining hands If you are not self-managed guy you will feel ditched If you have tendency to ask questions in open meetings then you will be specially targeted, and even office boys are influenced by these...

    I worked at Sandvine full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    * A few experienced, knowledgeable people who you can learn from. * Smaller teams and hence greater responsibilities. Works when you start off your career here.

    Cons

    * Terrible management who don't pay heed to employee's woes. * Manager (at least one) has a few favorites and only they get any help they need or the visibility they may want. It astonishes anyone as to how this is done in broad day light (In some cases, even expensive gifts are circulated in office hours to the favorites.). It's better to leave than point these out because HR turns a blind eye to any negative feedback....

    Advice to Management

    Listen to you employees. Management is not always right. If you let go of few of the undeserving managers/directors, you'll be able to retain talent.

    I worked at Sandvine full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Pay structure is good and free food. Apart from these two things nothing is great here. If you fall in favorite category of your Manager (Or Director) then you can really enjoy big perks like holidays at will, better ratings and hike irrespective of amount of work is done. Plus He will make sure your small amount of work is getting recognized.

    Cons

    This company is good for such people who are willing to work from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. Lots of favoritism, Director here points out their favorite ones and using his powers gives all the perks like better ratings and hikes irrespective of work they do. If you are not in his list of favorite one then be ready for very low hike irrespective of your performance. Moreover there are high chance of getting laid off too. Moral...

    Advice to Management

    Try to retain talent and have employee centric policies too. Try to stop favoritism by taking regular feedback from employees. Have better HR policies
