    I worked at Booker full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    beer, social gatherings, oranges, free swag, a ping pong table, desks, chairs,

    Honestly the only really positive take away from this place was I got to work from home 2 days a week. The Human Resources department were very understanding (as I was resigning due to conflicts with co-workers, and were very interested in my feedback). There is work to be done here, and depending on how you see it, it's an opportunity, or a nightmare.

    Cons

    I was neither trained, nor on-boarded in any capacity.

    immature senior staff/directors, company operates more like a frat house, poor management / lack of leadership, inexperienced executives, recruiter was unprofessional, generally a very unstable place that puts it's resources on the hook when product management/sales make mistakes, or they are reeling from horrible contracted relationships which force the hand to tip the companies efforts in all hands on deck efforts each time they made a release or had to satisfy the demanding clients wishes.

    Generally most of the technical staff seemed frustrated until they have beers,

    They don't pay competitively

    I was able to know within the first week this place was a mess and I made a huge mistake accepting the position. I watched a dozen people continue to resign each week as soon as i joined. I watched a director get fired in the most embarrassing way possible. I began looking for a new position after 2 months.

    This was the first time in my career I had to quit during my resignation period. My supervisor was bitter, and began demanding terms (which neither were discussed prior to my resignation nor acceptable). I literally had to take 3 weeks off unpaid and pay a claw back signing bonus. Easily the worst work experience I've ever had professionally

    Luckily I landed on my feet, and things are looking much better for me these days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do you want to hire quality people? Start from the top down, Build a real C team. Create a mentor program which inspires young developers and supports their careers. Create a positive learning culture. Eliminate the bad apples that while tenured and experienced in their improvised and strange operation, have provided little to no opportunity for the new people to step up. Break some walls, avoid gimmicky silver bullet solutions like "agile", choose a focus, stop trying to maintain the sinking ship, I've never seen a company support 5 versions of their own API.

    If you can't change much of what I described, consider selling the company.
