    I worked at Valiant Communication full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Up-to-date technology, both software and hardware.

    Cons

    There are a number of cons. At first glimpse, the building is dreary on the interior and exterior, and the working conditions are depressing. The company is divided into cliques, and politics are governed by back-talk and posturing.

    Salaries are below market value, benefits are sub-par, and the work-life balance is poor. But the most significant downside to working at Valiant is the constant feeling of being stuck in the mud.

    During my year and a half tenure, first as a software developer then as a team lead, I was given a vision that we were building something grand. And that it was so grand, in fact, that it justified an immensely long development time.

    What do I mean by long? Well, I was working on the next-generation of products for Valiant, which had been in development for a year prior to my arrival. I stayed for a year and a half, and at no point did we release our code to solicit feedback from would-be customers. This is 2.5 years of development without significant feedback, which is ludicrous. To my knowledge, the software still hasn't been released.

    So why did I stay as long as I did? I bought into the grand vision: that we were producing a codebase, using great techniques, and this process would ultimately lead to great products. I even turned down two much better offers to continue working towards our unrealistic goals.

    At some point, it became clear to me that if I wanted to be taken seriously as a professional software developer, than I would need to work on a code-base in production. I pushed very hard to define a clear route to production that would be attainable in a relatively short period of time, and I was not able to make traction. So I gave my two-weeks notice and took a better offer.

    I have recently accepted a new role, and needed letters of recommendation from past managers. Neither of my managers responded to my request for a recommendation. They clearly thought highly of me while I was there, promoting me to team lead, and trying to convince me to stay. Yet they were petty enough to view my resignation as a sign of disloyalty. It was extremely unprofessional.

    Fortunately, I was able to get other high-quality recommendations to my current manager. It was clear to him from the lack of response that my managers at Valiant were highly unprofessional. Yet, having to explain why I was unable to get past managers to respond to my request for a recommendation (Yes or No) was embarassing. Fortunately, no harm was done.

    My send off from Valiant? Depressing. I was told outright that I was a disappoint and was made to feel like I was betraying the company.

    My send off from my most recent company? A wonderful lunch with the whole team, a card full of best wishes. Promises to stay in touch. Pride from my coworkers that they had helped me advance in my career.

    Please do not work at Valiant as a software developer. Hold out for something better. Consider commuting to the city, and find a job there. There are so many great opportunities for software developers, and the tech industry in NYC is blossoming. Wait for a job offer that will allow you to really make a difference. I promise that a better one will come along soon.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Prototype. Iterate rapidly. Customer feedback is a far more powerful motivator than artificial deadlines.

    Do not represent that products are further along than actually are to would-be clients.

    Most importantly, be able to admit what you cannot do, and be able to admit when you're wrong.
