    I worked at Genetec full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Really great company culture Really feel like the company is making a difference in the world Fast-paced environment, always interesting

    Cons

    Really hard to grow within the company, I ended up leaving because after many years it was made clear to me that my career growth wasn't important to upper management. The marketing team has a lot of micro managers that just use the junior to do the legwork. They are kept out of strategy meetings and important discussions to help them understand the "why" and then use that as an excuse to not let them grow.

    Former Intern - Software Developer in Montreal, QC

    I worked at Genetec for less than a year

    Pros

    I loved working at this place for my internship. Many benefits include: - Indoor gym with professional fitness expert - Cafeteria where you can have a full meal for as low as $2, and the lots of variety to the food to satisfy the diverse culture of employees - Many clubs/social events/sports teams that employees can go to together before/after work Overall great company culture

    Cons

    Hard to get to if you don't have a car. There's a bus but it arrives infrequently.

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

    Pros

    Genetec is a great company that really cares about it's employees and treats them well. Unlike many security companies, Genetec takes internal security very seriously: from IT security, to physical security, and the security of the products they develop. If you want to make a difference and help keep the public safe, this is a good place to work.

    Cons

    Sometimes French speakers forget that there are people on the call who do not speak French and lot of information can be missed.

    I have been working at Genetec full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great Company, Great benefits, Perfect Projects!

    Cons

    Department Team Leads are not necessarily the best of the departments. They need more skills and improve their knowledge to fit in their positions. Also there is no accurate evaluation measurement just based on individual's opinion who are not knowledgeable enough to judge employees.

    Pros

    Have worked for less than a year - Great company culture : Colleagues are very friendly and open to discussion No discrimination based on hierarchy or level Very passionate employees who like challenges - Technical : Challenging and stimulating tasks Open to new ideas Teamwork Your tasks will match your technical level, not your social status

    Cons

    Location is hard to reach for some Huge legacy code base gets a bit hard to maintain, but they are really working on modernizing it, so it's not that bad
