    I worked at Fry full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Relaxed work environment, long time employees were very technically competent. Significant account of freedom when implementing technical solutions. Company prefers open source technologies.

    Cons

    Upper management destroyed to culture of a really successful smaller company when Fry was purchased by Micros. Communication became very limited and one way. Yearly review process lacked input from multiple sources leading to one source dominating review. Some project managers who did not have any formal computer science training tried to dominate technology solutions at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bringing back the small company culture that values individual employees would attract and keep the best talent, although it may be too late. Allow technologists to exercise their expertise and let project management do what they do best, make sure the project gets delivered.
