- This company provides terrible 'opportunities' that limit career advancement if an employee ever tries to leave. - Management is absent, or when actually contributing, makes uninformed decisions that disrupt employee advancing with approved projects. - Women are not treated appropriately. Management asked each woman in an all-women meeting if each planned to get married and start a family. Would men be asked the same? - Management doesn't conduct proper research prior to making decisions, and changes their minds often which looks disorganized and unprofessional. - Employees are unhappy and complain constantly. - There are almost 50 HR staff working in the company. Why so many if they never address employee concerns? What are they doing? - The company is moving to Production Way near SFU. Almost all employees will need to commute much further (+45 minutes each way) to get to work. They don't tell this to job candidates. - The company actively removes negative posts from Glassdoor, etc. to make their ratings look better. That isn't ethical and misleads potential job candidates.

Office is located in a dangerous neighbour, Someone was recently shot and killed in the warehouse next door.
Worked in manufacturing in the clean room for a year and a half. My manager was awful. Condescending and rude, lied about overtime pay, had no experience in the clean room so was completely useless on top of the fact she didn't take suggestions from the employees actually performing manufacturing duties, and in general a real buzz kill. Easily the worst manager I've ever had.
Most of the people who work there are great. Salaries are not that high to do the status of the company being a desirable place for science-based work. Company culture is good and benefits are also fine.
