    A strange place to work.

    • Senior Management
    Former Employee - Software Engineer in Omaha, NE
    Former Employee - Software Engineer in Omaha, NE

    I worked at Election Systems & Software as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    I worked with a few talented developers but the good ones didn't stay long.

    This would be a good place for a new developer to learn at and then leave.

    ESS is located in Omaha, NE which has a thriving tech industry so finding better opportunities doesn't take long.

    Cons

    This was a strange place to work. Communication between employees and departments was definitely an issue. There seemed to be a new disaster each day that resulted in long hours and people running around panicked. Deadlines seemed to be set by when someone wanted something done and not based on what needed to be accomplished, number of resources, etc.

    As a contractor I don't pay attention to company politics, this gives me the luxury of being brutally honest with the client. I was hired for my expertise in a specific area of technology. After roughly two weeks I wrote up an assessment of the project for my manager. My manager was a good guy and understood the issues but he was also a new employee and didn't want to rock the boat.

    The lead on the project was in over his head and the team had a code to the lowest common denominator. If he didn't understand how something worked, like reflection, we didn't use it. This was an important project given the circumstances, probably worth millions of dollars and it was shocking to see it sink because of a lack of experience. For a greenfield project the code was a mess and SOLID principals were tossed out the door. This was the first time I've ever "fired" a client. I learned that another developer on the team left a week or so later.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I'm an expert in my area and not really qualified to tell ESS how to fix their problems. I'd look around at the companies you're losing talented people too and start there.
