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

    Pros

    I was a contractor so I got paid better then salary employees for the crappy experience. I learned a lot, but it was mainly self taught, so I guess I can't give them credit for that.

    Cons

    The company is unethical at best. The former CEO managed the place like terribly which led to tons of extra and unnecessary work. He pushed the sales team to overload on contracts, so much so, that no one could complete them. Then he used all the contracts as ammunition to sell the company to an investment firm. Before the new investors could understand what a mess they were getting, they actually gave bonuses to the previous officers. The bonuses were increased by laying off 15 workers the night before Thanksgiving. After the new investors saw how horrible everything was, and after only being in charge for 6 months, they stopped products and let go of 70% of the work force. They claimed this was due to reduced revenue from a big contract. However, they had many more contracts bringing in millions. For such a small company you have to wonder where the money went. It would not surprise me if arrests were made at some point. Google this company and Oklahoma or Bexar. You will find impending lawsuits.
