HVAC/ Plumbing Apprentice (Former Employee), Oxford, MAAugust 26, 2013
With 5 of us on a job site we did the plumbing and HVAC for multiple new buildings the company IPG photonics were building. Every day I would assist the two head workers with whatever assistance was needed. My worked ranged from coring holes to carrying pipe. Working at this company taught me a lot of things such as better ways of measuring and using – more... a wide range of tools from a cutter to a pro press. The most enjoyable part of the job was being busy all the time and watching the progress of a new building you helped build. – less

Technical Engineer (Former Employee), pondicherryNovember 4, 2014
A typical day starts with reporting to my head and start up the work with the enquiries and important calls of the day. Apart from education, practical knowledge I gained is from the field work. The management supported me when I was a fresher. They brought my skills by guiding me in a soft way which made things so easy. My colleagues were the hidden – more... support, apart from many discussions and arguements still many stood because of my amicability. The hardest part of the job is getting stuck between the management and customers, handling that situation was hard for me. Everyday is an enjoyable day because of the field work which I liked very much. – less

Great product ideas, lack of direction
Project Manager (Former Employee), Kanata, ONSeptember 15, 2014
Pros: good benefit package, excellent coworkers
Cons: no work life balance
Great employees, very professional and dedicated team of people.
Excellent product ideas, it was great being part of a team that changed the way children learn in the classrooms and the way people interact from remote locations.
In the past 3 years management lacked direction.
Even though you get a great vacation package, it is hard to get away from – more... work while you are expected to work evenings and weekends and be on call 24/7. – less

Testing & Quality Assurance Analyst II (Current Employee), Calgary, ABDecember 20, 2013
Pros: all the good pjm and pm left alrady.
Cons: i happend to be there.
It was a pretty good community, I was working with, always top of the quality. All of sudden the quality is no longer where it was.

The leaders keep saying The 3 On's, apparently that is not the case as the PjM' and PMs are pushing sub par quality software.

Never before have i had so many bugs deferred, than this year.

Let see how they will do with – more... unbound spaces (but full of bugs) we deffer!!!!! – less

A typical day at work, for me:
Customs, Import and Export Documentation Clerk (Former Employee), Kanata, ONNovember 5, 2013
Pros: very friendly office environment; good products, good food in the cafeteria, free beverages.
Cons: re-structuring is a necessity in order to prosper, my position was eliminated due to the last re-structuring.
The word typical doesn't apply to SMART Technologies because this organization is ever moving and evolving in a very positive way.

My tasks, although at times repetitive, were always challenging and that is something I managed with pride and good work ethics.

I learned something new every day. Whether it was about cultures, new Customs regulations – more... or simply about shipping lanes, there is always something new to discover. This made my day interesting and enjoyable.

The SMART Technologies global teams were always there to lend a hand when required or appreciative of my assistance to them. We were a team.

I wouldn't say that there were hard parts to the job, merely challenges, such as time zones and having the capability of reaching contacts abroad.

The most enjoyable part of this position was being able to say that I had done a good job that day, confident that our customers were satisfied and that I had contributed to the success of the company. – less

SMART is a good place to start a career. I learned a lot about people, technology, and customer service. The hardest part about the position was that it required me to handle extremely difficult situations. The people I worked with were awesome.
