    Pros

    Location is nice, except for Irving having a lot of earthquakes lately. Up until recently, software was on a great track and work for an engineer was getting easier.

    Cons

    Benefits are a joke. High deductible plan with a really terrible premium if you have dependents, no kind of reasonable expense system for out-of-pocket costs to improve your workspace, etc. Speaking of workspace, you're given a pretty middle-of-the-line development PC and your devo and prod stack are a joke. Customers constantly having outages due to hardware failure. As said in the pros, things were improving, processes were getting more agile and making more sense. We were addressing backlog items like a real development shop, and giving reasonable estimates for how long they took. Then there was yet another shakeup and we all ended up running around putting out fires all the time, usually making up for the CEO selling vaporware to the customer, promising we can start fresh servers and deploy patches on holidays, all sorts of irresponsible stuff. Biz services are responsible for making clients happy and we never do, just convince them not to drop us at the last second.

    To be honest that's not too uncommon with startups, but this place is in perpetual startup mode and has been since before I got here. Everyone works overtime and scrapes as hard as they can to get by but nothing really gets done, the company just keeps treading water. The worst thing is the complete allergy to reality that management has. Read the reviews, you can see that someone has an ego problem and keeps putting really poorly written positive reviews up to make the average go up above 3 stars. What this means for your day-to-day is if you have legitimate concerns, there's really nowhere to bring them. Management pretends everything is okay no matter how bad a situation is right up until a customer is affected, then everything is horrible and it's your fault (ignoring all of the warnings you tried to give them). The typical argument is they think that anyone who complains is acting entitled and should just do what they're told: this is how you get code monkeys and drones. If you want to compete with the biggest and best companies in the world you have to treat your employees like valuable assets that are irreplaceable, and they'll go out of their way to help you out. If you have people who don't do that on their own you can't make them do it, and you'll never attract them with this hilarious circus of reviews on Glassdoor, you'll only get people who have no other options and cost a fortune to train. The mindset of this company fits closer with a 50s defense contractor than a modern technology provider.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. You hired them because they're better at technology/sales/marketing/design/whatever than you. If you don't take their word and keep pushing them down they're going to just do one of two things: 1) the bare minimum to stay off your radar so they can keep their head down and cash the paycheck or 2) leave and go somewhere people listen to them. This is a great way to run your business into the ground.
